It’s OK

Last night we walked around the yard and let ourselves into the garden to check the progress of the asparagus. Nothing yet, but I bet there will be by next weekend. We’re finally going to have spring temperatures here. I’m thrilled. Tomorrow I have plans to work on weeding flower beds and doing other outside stuff.

As we were walking around we checked on the aeration and seeding a service did for us earlier in the week. I told the better-half this morning that I was so glad someone else did it. I’m finally letting myself be OK with someone else doing the work. It’s not that I can’t, but it’s just not something that I like doing and the last time I was in charge of doing it the stupid lawn mower and I got jacked up. So, paying for the service is alright with me.

Today we took the chain saw and the weed eater to be serviced. The guys at the counter were happy to write up the chain saw for tuning and sharpening, but they were all “seriously, don’t spend money on that hunk of sh*t” when they looked at the weed eater. We walked out of the store with a brand-new weed eater and I’m thrilled. The battery packs are charging now and I can’t wait to buzz the crap out of stuff tomorrow. A girl and her weed eater is a happy thing.

Updated 4/7/13: The new weed eater is awesome. It’s a Black and Decker with a lithium battery pack. It’s light and I did not run out of juice halfway through the task. I’m looking at you, old weed eater.

    I miss this time of year so much. Waiting and watching for asparagus is so exciting.

    I’m really hoping we have a bumper crop this year. It’s one of the few things we’re growing this spring/summer.
