Friday Fence is Up!

Low and behold, the fence is finally done! This makes me all kinds of excited. Okay, so it isn't completely complete. There is a gate to be put up in the front, but for the most part, the important stuff is all done. There were quite a bit of problems on the way, such as even after we got those trees cut down, the stumps made it impossible to sink a hole there and so the posts have some creative spacing. It looks good, though, and even our gate's hinges are all pretty.

I bought a manual lawnmower at Menards. My thoughts were that if I was going to mow the lawn myself, our other lawnmower was broken, and I can barely start a lawnmower, then I would get a manual. It actually works pretty good. I mean, I don't expect it to be a walk in the park, unless that park is very bumpy and full of sticks. However, I would have more trouble with a pushmower and so it's all good. I don't have to worry about gas or oil or grass shooting at my legs and cutting them. Nor do I have to worry about bent or dull blades or grass bunching up in the catcher. An old man walking down the sidewalk saw me using it and said, "I haven't seen one of those in years. I learned to cut grass with one of those." His grandpa had one, hee hee.

I went to yard sales with Mom and Aria today here in town. We got some good deals. I got Aria a cute little trike for $2. I got her some books, about 5 outfits, and I got her a fisher price play camera and a weebles RV. Mom got some Megablocks to keep at her house and some cute clothes for Gannon in size 12 months. We ate at KFC and stopped when the baby started getting cranky. Tomorrow I plan to go with Misty, but we'll be taking the stroller because there should be quite a bit of walking going on. All in all, not a bad day. Today a lot was accomplished.
