Another long day of planting trees and two small mowing jobs. I will be doing more trees tomorrow, as well as maybe a few mowing jobs, and if all goes well, I will be getting my new Stihl blower which will make my jobs a lot easier to do. I hate sweeping off the sidewalks, it takes forever.

Weather was nice today and we may get some rain tonight. It will be nice again tomorrow as well which is always good. I had hotdogs for supper today. I have been really tired the past few days and I even went to bed at 9:30 last night. I am half tempted to do that again, and I might if I am bored enough.

Today was another long day for me. I did a lot of work and will be playing the tree planting game again tomorrow. I hate that my hands are kind of dry and my thumbs are starting to crack slightly. It was nice today and tomorrow should be nice as well. I also have more mowing to do tomorrow.

Supper today was turkey and mashed potatoes that I enjoyed. I will be getting my Stihl BR600 soon. I should be getting it Tuesday if all goes as I have planned. I can’t wait to get it since I have the perfect jobs to test it on later on this week. It should be a lot better than my neighbor’s Echo I use.

Today was a very long day. I have been up since 5 this morning and did that cemetery, as well as another yard today. I have a lot on my plate for tomorrow and then it will be back to trees on Monday again! I would say that I prefer the trees a bit since that is easier to do.

Supper today was very good fried chicken from the local grocery store. They have some really good chicken, even though it isn’t like KFC. Sometimes I would even say that they have better chicken then KFC. Weather will be 55 tomorrow so about the same as today was really.

Today was a long day and tomorrow will be even longer as I will be up at 5 to go mow the cemetery at 6. This is crazy. I was up at 7 today to plant trees again, which isn’t even halfway done if I had to guess. Weather was cold and windy tomorrow and it will be nicer tomorrow at 55 at least.

Supper today was some good frozen pizzas that I enjoyed. I have more to do Sunday as I didn’t get any mowing done today due to time issues. Looks like I will be going to bed very early tonight so I can be awake tomorrow. Ah Friday night and I will be in bed well before 12!

Today was a good day. I spent most of it planting trees actually. The holes were already done, so all we did was put the trees in the holes and put top soil over them. I have more to do tomorrow as well as 3 lawns and I even did one lawn today. I am keeping busy for sure!

Weather was nice today, since it was cloudy, but we did get a few sprinkles. They are saying that it will be windy tomorrow though. The good thing about wind is it keeps me cool when I am working so it will be a help I think, as long as I don’t have to rake up leaves or anything at least.

The weather was pretty crazy here today. I did get some work done though, but we did get some rain showers off and on. Tomorrow will be rain again so there goes my plan of doing the lake tomorrow I guess. I will have to see what happens for any other jobs though.

Supper today was pork chops and Spanish rice that I enjoyed. I have to say that sometimes getting DOS working right is a pain. I found out that if I load the Zip drive software I won’t have enough memory to run DOS programs so maybe I can find a way to make a boot menu that will load the Zip drive or not.

It was slightly drier today, since we did get a few showers, so I was able to get my yard and one other one mowed today so that worked out well. I will be busy tomorrow as well as Thursday and Friday and even this weekend, since I have that cemetery to do on Saturday and other jobs to do Sunday.

Supper today was fried chicken and French fries that I really enjoyed. Weather will be dry tomorrow with only a few showers, which I am reading as nothing. I am working on getting the 486 to run some more DOS programs so I tried using memmaker and now I can run stuff without being told I am out of memory.

Well today was a wet day, but it wasn’t as bad as yesterday since it wasn’t an all-day rain. We got mostly showers and will have more showers tonight, and tomorrow and Wednesday as well. This is bad for me since I have work to get done and it is too wet to do any work for me.

I am working on some recipe typing again since I have the 486 running well again. I do like the feel of the old keyboards even if the one that I use with it, and came with the machine, isn’t quite the same as the IBM model M everyone loves. Supper today was pasta that I enjoyed a lot.

Today was a wet day but we really need the rain and I am just glad that the snow portion will miss us. Bradford will be getting 12 to 18 inches of wet heavy snow, and with the trees all having leaves, and the winds, they will have some bad power outages I bet.

I just hope none of the power outages are in my area though since that is never a good thing. I will have to get the generator running if we do. Supper today was a chicken from Sam’s Club and sweet potato fries that I really enjoyed. Weather for tomorrow will be wet again with some showers.

Today was a pretty good day. It was kind of warm and didn’t start raining until later so I got 2 yards mowed today. I reinstalled Windows 3.11 on the Packard Bell 486 and I am starting over from scratch. This helps me to clean up the junk on the hard drive so I can have more space for programs.

Supper today was very good bacon and mushroom cheeseburgers that I enjoyed a lot. Weather for tomorrow will be wet with rain all day and all day rain again on Monday. I have to start searching the internet to find some fun programs for the 486 so I can give it some real use.
