OK, technically Spring doesn't arrive until later this week.  Indiana, however, didn't seem to get the memo as we've been in the upper 70's or even around 80 degrees for the last several days and counting.  It is absolutely glorious here today - mostly sunny and warm with a light breeze.  So amazing out that I got out the lawnmower and cut the grass!  Yep, I'm not hiring the lawn guys this year as I want to start doing it myself again.  One it saves me about $160 a month and two it is good exercise.  Plus I actually like mowing - it destresses me big time.  Finding the time to do it has been the hard part (plus not hurting my damn knees in the process).  If it doesn't work out I can always hire someone again.  But I actually like the way the yard looks when I'm done with my little electric mower better than it did after the guys got finished. 

Next up is waiting to see if it rains any this evening or tomorrow and putting down the weed & feed.  My yard, it is weeds!  I also have a metric shit-ton of weeds in the flower beds that need taking care of - not today as I'm pooped but soon.  And cleaning then restaining the deck.  And planting annuals.  And getting the chimney cap inspected.  And, and, and...

The garage door is handled at least.  The new one should be here in a couple of weeks and then can get installed, hopefully while I'm on vacation.  Yes, I'm taking the first week of April off - and not going anywhere this time.  Its just time to get some stuff done around the house balanced with some major vegging out.  I can not wait! 

Oh, and in case you didn't notice, yes I feel better.  Still have a bit of a cough and some stuffiness but nothing like I did.  Plus those could technically be put down to allergies.  The point is that I feel pretty good right now but I'm still working on not overdoing it.  Like today - I normally would have immediately started tackling the weeds once I finished mowing.  Instead after the yard was done I called it a day, took a shower, and am now kicking back.  I'm learning.  Slowly but I am learning. 

Oh again!  Discount Armegeddon by Seanan McGuire?  Absolutely Freaking Amazing!  It is a great read and well worth your time.  It is a great world, a lot of fun, and doesn't take itself too seriously.  Not that it is a satire or spoof though - it just doesn't have that heavy brooding feel that so many UF books do.  Plus Verity?  No super powers!  Talk about refreshing.  Seriously go read it. 

And now I'm going to finish some laundry and probably take a nap.  Later!
