She was happy and chatty this evening after her
I got up a little earlier than I normally would on a Saturday so I could return the concrete saw right when the store opened this morning. I managed to get a half-day rental rate in part because of that (which is good, because it saved me about $20). Regardless of that, it was well worth the saw, because it made that job go quite well.
Short of going down to the basement this morning to look around and showing Beth, I really pretty much stayed out of that area today. I really wanted to haul some more concrete out, but it didn't work out that way. At least not today. My hands were probably the most sore of my entire body (although one knee wasn't feeling that great, but that was (I'm guessing) mostly due to the precarious nature of my posture last night while chipping away at the wall. Regardless, an Advil seems to have taken care of that problem for the day.
It's Prairie Pioneer Days in Morris this weekend, so I ended up meeting up with Beth (and Erik, Jill, and Henry) in the forenoon. We hung around for a while and had a reasonable time. Did a lot of walking, and by the time we all made it back home again it was most definitely time for a nap. So I think we all slept for something like 2-3 hours this afternoon. It was a good time. Everyone was tired.
I do intend to get the lawn mowed tomorrow if possible. It shouldn't take that long, because most of it is fairly short, but it needs to be leveled out again, and it's been something like three weeks or perhaps even a bit longer since the last time it was mowed). But, after our little half inch of rain last night, I'm afraid that it will perk up for a week or so now, which means that if I don't mow it now...it's going to take longer when I do take the time sometime in the next week.
Anyway, that's about all she wrote for today, so until next time...
