Today was a good day and I got quite a bit done. I did a garden, cut down a tree, and 4 yards. Tomorrow I have a good bit to get done as well, including cutting some trees that are growing in a fence at one of my jobs, so I will be busy again tomorrow.
My mower has shipped, and will go first to a Toro dealer, where it will be set up and tested, and then the dealer will deliver it to me. I ordered the wrong bag, so I got a prepaid card, and went online and ordered the right chute that will fit the deck on my mower. The right bag is out of stock at Home Depot, and since I paid with a gift card, this was the best thing to do even if it cost me a bit more.

Today was a shorter day than I had planned due to my knee starting to hurt. I am not sure what will happen tomorrow, but the plan is to get as much as I can done, as it always is, but with 4 that I need to do minimum, with a few others, plus whoever calls.
Also, I noticed that I ordered the wrong bag, and the one I need is out of stock. Since I paid with a gift card, to get a refund, it needs to go back onto the git card. So, what is the difference? The chute is different. I am going to see if it comes back in stock soon, but if not, I will just see if the dealer has the chute that I need for the deck on this mower.

I did a few lawns today, including my own as well, and tomorrow I have a few to do, depending on the heat. I quit early today as I couldn’t take the heat but ended up rearranging my shed a little bit. I need to see about getting some hooks to hang things on though.
I was looking at the size of the mower online and it looks like it may not even fit on my trailer, which could be a problem. I need to wait until I get it to see if I can find a way, since it depends on how high the rear bumper is compared to the trailer side. I may be able to use some boards under the wheels.

Well, I ended up doing something today. I FINALLY have gotten to the point where I can no longer stand walking all day, so I ordered a Toro TimeCutter SS4225 zero turn with a 42 inch deck, and the bagger. With tax, it came to just under 3000, but it will be well worth it to be able to get more done in a day!
I did 3 lawns today as well, and I will be VERY busy tomorrow. I am going to be waiting for the zero turn to come in, since the estimated delivery date, though it has yet to ship, is June 13 to June 22, so we shall see when it actually ships. I am hoping to have it soon though, as always.

It was hot today so I ended up using the Snapper for 3 of the 5 yards I got done. I am working again tomorrow but these are yards I will need to do with the Honda, same for Sunday and probably most of my other yards really except for a few others.
I am not a cactus, so I don’t really like the heat. I prefer to be a penguin, and for it to be cold really. I don’t mind it around 75 or so, but 80 and beyond is horrible to spend all day working outside really. I am hoping for it to get cool, and rainy, again soon as we can use the rain.

Another long and tiring day means a quick post from the phone as I have no idea how long I can keep my eyes open tonight. The funny thing is that when I am this tired, even coffee is useless. it was a hot day today, and will be again tomorrow. I did 7 yards and some bushes. Some of the yards were small, so they went a lot easier. I have a lot to do tomorrow, and I hope that I can get most of them done.

Another long day where I only got a 5 done. I quit a little early as I was getting tired, since it was in the 80s today. It wasn’t humid so that was a plus side, but I didn’t have the energy for anymore cutting today and tomorrow is another day.
Sadly it is another day where I have a lot to do and not enough time to do it all as 3 of them need to be done in time for garbage to come on Friday when they take the yard waste, plus there are the ones who want it to look good for the weekend as well since it is Memorial Day weekend.
