Still, I did not ride. I think now that I know how bad my knees are, I am less inspired than ever.
But I will ride soon. Today the wind was pretty strong most of the day. It died down as the afternoon wore on, but I decided the dandelions on the front lawn were a bit out of hand. It was starting to look as if the house were abandoned, since the lawn was so untidy.
I took out the newly resurrected mower and off I went. It's far from a good job, mostly because the fallen tree branches are still in the way as I haven't quite managed to move them out. That is another rather big job to tackle. Still, I neatened up the yard a bit. I really do need to go out and week whack along that darn front bank already, but that is a weekend job. If I tackle it during the weekdays I will get mowed down by speeding cars and trucks along the road.
And my back is a little out of sorts too. I have a chiropractor appointment for tomorrow, so that will fix things--just enough so I can go out, do some chores and throw it out again. *G*
I may check with the lawn firm that cuts my Aunt's lawn next door to get an estimate, as they do week whacking and trimming as a matter of course, but funds are tight, and I'm not sure I can afford hired help.
Meanwhile, I will muddle along, doing a fair job of making the place look tidy.
