new Rod


I'm really tired today.

Woke up around 3pm. I will admit to getting to bed really late, like around 6am. Showered and then began yard work. I needed to sharpen the blades of the lawnmower. I had trouble getting the blades off. The nut was stuck pretty bad. I was almost hurting myself trying to get it off. My in-laws came over and my father-in-law helped me get the blade off, while Liz and her mother did some gardening. I didn't have the proper sized wrench. We used an adjustable wrench which wasn't the best solution, but it worked. I then asked him for help with the weed wacker as the string had gotton stuck inside. We ended up taking it to a local hardware store. They changed it and taught me how to do it myself. My father-in-law then bought me a proper sized wrench for the lawnmower blade for the future. We swapped out the blades and I will be sharpening the old one to swap out later. I have really nice in-laws. If you have the means, I highly recommend getting nice in-laws.

So I got the grass cut and having a sharper blade really made a difference. I also got the sides of the yard weeded using the fixed wacker. Then I trimmed a tree near our deck as a couple branches were getting a bit low. Then I had to cut-up the branches and Liz helped me put the pieces in our yard waste can and a yard waste bag. Then we went to the store and then got chinese to eat. We got back a little after 10pm.

Tomorrow is our Grove's Guild Day. It will be at my house. I need to come up with some sort of topic or lesson plan or something. It will be Magicians, then Healers and then Warriors Guild meetings. Any ideas?

Frog story, part 3

I was inspired to write a third little green frog story. It will be different and not what people expect, I think. I've made a start and am still working on it.
