As I mentioned on a prior post...I am having problems going back to sleep after administering Mom's early morning medications. This past Friday, I got tired of laying in bed and decided to give the hulla hoe a workout before it got to a high of 95 degrees.
It did not take long to make my hands hurt even while wearing gloves. Then a light bulb went off and I decided to use my leftover water noodle (I think that is what is called) and it worked great!
I was only planning on addressing the backyard but decided the area on the street side of the fence needed it more. Turned out to be too much work using the hulla hoe...so I pulled out the electric weed eater.
The last time I went to my house in Houston...I took one of my two-100 ft extension cords so I could mow the yard using my electric lawn mower. Little did I know it would be over two years and counting before I could go back. Therefore, I unknowingly left my extension cord there.
I really needed the extra cord to finish the job. Did the best I could under the circumstances...that being the heat and humidity...if only I had done this two months ago, it might have gone a lot smoother. Folks, take it from me...do not procrastinate :-(
I was planning on finishing the job on Saturday morning but was not planning on it raining in the early morning hours...I left the weed eater along with the extension cord outside!
Even half way done, I felt a great sense of accomplishment. We will see what next week brings?
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
