Wow, it is supposed to be “summer time and the living is easy”. It sure hasn’t been working that way for me..lol I have so many things to paint, repair, and generally get finished outside, it seems never ending. I planned on mowing and weed wacking my yard this morning and wouldn’t you know it, the mower wouldn’t start. Well, get the tools out take the air cleaner off, take the spark plug out and also remove the carburetor cover. Even tired spray to make the engine start in the carburetor. Well, none of those things worked, so it was up to my trusty hardware store to ask some questions. I ended up with a new spark plug and put it in the mower, but that still didn’t work. I guess my points on my mower are bad and I sure can’t fix them. I paid a neighbor to then mow my yard and I weed wacked. Then it was off to sanding and painting. When I had some of that finished, I took my granddaughter to work, because her boyfriend was working and they only have one car. Back to the sanding and painting more. Pulling weeks and planting more tomato plants and generally doing more stuff in the yard. Hopefully in the next week or two I will get everything outside done, except for mowing, weed wacking, and taking care of my garden, herbs, and tomatoes.
Tomorrow I want to paint more and try to get my Weber Grill cleaned up. I will see if I can accomplish all that, plus go get groceries and water. No time for me to make pizza at home right now, but that will change when I get all the other stuff done. I still didn’t do my spring cleaning or wash all my windows, but did start somewhat. I enjoy working outside, but all this extra work can be tiring. I do take a few breaks though. Some of my tomato plants are getting so big, that they are almost as tall as I am. Hopefully that means a lot of Les’s sauce for this summer and winter.
I had homemade vegetable soup for dinner tonight. It was yummy!
