To me “great” doesn’t mean a whole lot. In this case it meant I was able to do some yard work and I like playing in the yard. I will be getting some mulch next week. I have always wanted to do a little prep work before I spread the mulch. Some of this is just getting the weeds out of the current mulch and edging the grass along the sides of the mulch. This makes the grass harder to grow into the mulch.
I removed an apple tree last year and am having a hard time to get grass to grow there. Since I was removing some large chunks of sod while edging, I should try to transplant it. Only time will tell if this will work but, as of right now I have grass where once was a tree.
I suppose what makes working in the yard funny is that Indiana didn’t have that great of weather of outdoor work. It was slightly raining and about 50 degrees. I am sure my neighbors were laughing the whole time. Normally I would rather have less clothes on not a sweatshirt and a raincoat but I wanted to get this stuff done. The weather forecast for my mulch delivery suggests I will be wearing the same gear.
That night I was pretty tired but, I still managed to fold 2 loads of laundry and them put up. I even watched a little bit of The Bee Movie while the boys were going to sleep. Normally, my wife falls asleep but, she was actually awake when I got out of the boys’ room. Some times (as was Saturday night), this is a good sign for me. She said the kids are asleep early you want to shut the door. Weeehooo. I will spare you the details…well actually it would take longer for me to type than it really lasted.
Sunday was a sunny day. I pulled more weeds. Then I cut the grass. Three times in a a week but, the lines look awesome.
My wife took the kids to the park and I promised to finish making some food for the rest of the week. I made some sloppy joes. Well actually just added the Joe mix to the ground burger. My kids don’t eat much and sloppy joes are one of the things they love. I grilled some marinated chicken breast and some salmon. We are ready for the rest of the week.
I also cooked 3 lobster on the grill. We bought frozen lobster about a year ago. We found it over the weekend. They are already cooked. I probably should have just thawed it and eaten it cold. Has any one ever had lobster jerky? It was pretty nasty. I think it was the combination of old lobster and over cooking an already cooked lobster. It stunk up the house and the smell stayed in my nose the rest of the night. We threw it out.
