Well today was a good day. I did 4 yards, and mine. Two the yards were new ones too! I am sure I will be doing the one regularly but the other one I am not sure yet. I need to see if his son in law is going to do the grass as he told me if he doesn’t want to do it I can have the job.

I will be doing a small one tomorrow that shouldn’t take long but I am not sure if anyone else will call either though. I am really hoping that it rains soon as it is getting pretty dry out again. I am shocked that it isn’t wetter since April showers bring May flowers after all.

Today was a rather long day as I did only 2 yards but they were rather big so it took me a lot longer than I had planned on. I will be doing 2 tomorrow but these are smaller yards at least. I may even do mine as well if I manage to get to it or not.

The weather was really nice today and tomorrow should be around the same, so it will be a nice to get some things done. I am sure if I ill do any others tomorrow yet but it would be nice to squeeze in a few extra yards for ssure.

Well I took today off but I should be working tomorrow unless something changes. I will be doing a new customer as well, though it will be an every other week job. I would prefer weekly but it is small and only a few houses down from mine so it is will be a good yard to have.

I was going to run the buggy today but it is a little chilly so I decided not to. I need to get another EC5 connector to fix the battery that had a bad solder joint on it. I think I may have an extra one here somewhere but I am not sure if I do or not. I may look for it to save a few dollars.

I felt a bit better today, but I am still coughing a bit. I can say my voice is coming back at the very least though. I ended up doing 6 yards today, and I will take tomorrow off to rest. I have at least one to do on Wednesday or Thursday, then 3 dethachings for the weekend.

Needless to say I am rather busy but I am glad that I am. I didn’t really want to do all 6 today but someone called and I was already close to the other one I was going to do on Wednesday. He said I could do it today so it was my last one for the day.

This will be rather short as I still don’t feel too great and I am tired today. I did a lot of work today, 2 dethatchings, and a mow, and have 4 or 5 to do tomorrow. I am no coughing as much but my nose keeps running and I am hoarse. I wish it would rain all week so I could rest but I need to work while I can. Yesterday was cut short as well since I slept the entire way home.

Well, today is another car trip day, but that comes later today. Right now, it is early in the morning, when I do my normal shopping time. I decided to start early today, using the Droid 4. I am not sure if I will bring much tonight as I end up not using a lot of what I do bring. The place does have WiFi so the droid will be handy.

The problem with bringing something like the Surface is finding a power outlet. Most of the time, I never have a table next to a plug. That is where the Droid comes in handy as I have the little USB batteries I can use. I will make sure the Droid is also charged up before leaving the house as well. I would love to get a huge extended battery for the Droid one of these days.

The problem there is the screen on this one lately has been kind of glitchy at random. There are times when the image starts turning green or purple and jumping around a bit. I would probably get a second one if it did break as there isn’t much else to get. The issue for me is I need the keyboard, but there are very few devices that have a good keyboard as well as being able to use a more modern version of Android.

At this point, if I was going for purely keyboard and nothing more, then I could make due with a Palm Treo as they can get very good battery life. The thing is the older hardware didn’t use as much power, so the 1800MAH battery on the Treo 650 or 700p would last for days. That was one of the better things about those days for sure, but we have much better stuff now depending on how you look at things.

Now, onto the trip to the concert and traveling light isn’t all that light after all. I have the Surface Pro with TypeCover2, the Droid4, Clie UX50, my mom’s little Canon camera, and the USB batteries with a Micro USB cable. I did also bring the charger for the Surface as well. I am not sure I will use much of this stuff but the bag is small enough. I didn’t take my camera though.

I have been to this place before actually when I got the Droid. I had cut it close getting the Droid that day as the mail was really late. I was able to get the basic setup done and run. They did have WiFi last time so I will be able to get online for a bit but this will be posted late.

I actually had a chance to rest today which was great since I am really not feeling all the well yet. I feel a bit better but I am still sick. I am sure this cold weather isn’t helping me get any better either. It will warm up again soon which is great since the grass is getting tall in some yards.

I also need to finish sharpening the hedge trimmer, and adjust the valves on Honda and BR600 as well. If it stays cold, I won’t get anything done, but with the warm weather also comes more work to do so it becomes a never winning battle in the end.
