I nearly burned out the little electric weed wacker this afternoon as I attacked the perimeter of the largest garden, then got rid of the grass growing out of cracks in the driveway. All three bags of mulch have been used or stacked up, so tomorrow I'll make that trip again (and I'm glad you have that steady supply, Dorothy. My city park supply is resupplied regularly and should be getting some more soon since it's pretty low). My gas trimmer is difficult to start, I may have to take it in for more work, or redo the fuel lines.

There are some US Post Office boxes that I've had for a long time that aren't usable now (some of the Zone B boxes; zone A is still in use and I use them a lot, but these others didn't work out so well and were discontinued.) I've flattened them completely, laid them in a line, and covered them with mulch. I also used some long pieces of cardboard I'd kept from the box the mower came in and other boxes that were the right shape for this application. It'll make room in my sun room box storage area.

I've walked past the same dead bug or dirt chunk on the floor for the last couple of days - it's time to attack the dust and specks and vacuum the living room carpet. And since Poppy's passing, I think the time has come to steam clean the carpets.
