Today ended up being a rather busy day as I finished the bushes, and cut that yard, plus 3 others. I have 3 planned for tomorrow, depending on who calls of course. Since people tend to have parties for the Fourth, I am sure at least one person will want it done. I am going to keep this post on the short side today as I am rather tired and this is posted a little later than usual.

Well, another long day trimming bushes, but I did get 2 yards cut and some other trim only work done today. I will be finishing the large job tomorrow, when I top the arborvitae and touch up anything that needs it. After that, I will do the final cleanup, and mow the lawn.

I am looking forward to finishing this job as I have 3 other yards planned, and I am not sure who else will be calling since it is a holiday weekend, and people tend to want the grass done before they have a party, which is why I know I will be busy on Saturday.

Today was a sort of okay day I guess you can say as we only got about a tenth of an inch of rain, which probably won’t make even a slight difference in turning the dried out grass green again anytime soon. I was trimming some bushes and I did cut one yard today.

Tomorrow, I will do more work trimming bushes and hope to have this rather large job finished up tomorrow completely, depending on how my back feels. Doing the tops with the KM110 and extension shaft is very hard on my arms and back.

I did some bushes and a yard today before getting rained out which then stopped not long after I got home. I need to finish sharpening the hedge trimmer tomorrow, then I will be back out trimming bushes yet again tomorrow, until the rain starts.’

Of course, I should say if it starts as we didn’t get much at all today, and they said a quarter inch yesterday on the news. I wish that they would start to punish the weatherman If they are wrong this often. Perhaps a 3 strikes per week rule would be good motivation.

Today was a good day. I did 4 yards only but it is getting to the point where I won’t be doing much now unless it rains, but there may be some rain tomorrow and Tuesday! I am really hoping we get the rain but I am not sure if it will help much though.

The issue is once the grass goes dormant from lack of rain and the heat, it often takes a long time to come back nice and green again. The thing is that not many people here water the grass, so the longer it goes without the rain, the harder it gets for it to come back.

Well, short one today as I was sitting out on the porch. I didn’t work today, but will do a few tomorrow. It was nice to have a day off, since it was rather warm yet again. I started playing Final Fantasy IV on PSP again as well, which I am enjoying a lot.

Well, today was a bit more work than I expected. I did some bushes and 2 lawns. I had 2 lawns planned but these were different ones, and I never got to them. I will be doing those 2, as well as one more, on Sunday, and taking tomorrow off for a change.

I am getting sick of the dry weather, and while it looks like it may rain on Monday, I am sure that by the time it gets to Sunday night, it will have changed and we get nothing. Hopefully one of these days we get a good soaking rain and the grass gets growing well again.

I had a lighter day today, but I will be trimming bushes tomorrow. I am not a huge fan of that but a job is a job at his point as th grass starts to slow down. It didn’t rain at all today, which means yet again the forecast was wrong.

I did some small fireworks tonight. I am saving the good stuff for the Fourth of course, but I do like some of the small stuff like ground bloom flowers, and some of the smaller cheaper fountains. I don’t think I will do much else until the actual holiday thoughl.

Well, today ended up being a better day than I expected. I did 3 lawns with the zero turn, and 2 more with the Honda. I will be doing more tomorrow as well, and for Friday, if I get all the yards done, I will do bushes. Of course, someone else will probably call and ruin that plan, not that it is a bad thing.

I am looking forward to the coming fireworks for the Fourth of July as well. I got some stuff to do myself, since going to the one free show we used to go to has not been very good lately. Last time, you could hear the crowd over the fireworks, and they didn’t do much either.

Well today was a busy day, but I got some yards done and some bushes trimmed. I will be mowing tomorrow, and then doing bushes again on Thursday as it is likely going to be a rain day with thunderstorms in the forecast, but I am sure that will change.

I am glad that it wasn’t as hot today but they are saying that it will be warming up again though, which I am not a fan of, but its nothing I can change. I am just glad that the zero turn is letting me get done faster, so I can at least make good timing.
