Spring means work, you guys. Sure, everything greens up and there’s new growth everywhere — but that also means weeds grow, as well. The rain that frequently falls this time of year helps grass grow. And dandelions. They grow too!
This is the time of year that mowing isn’t required just once per week… even mowing a couple times a week it still looks like no one at this house cares about what the yard looks like. Working from home means I can go outside for 20 minutes — then back in to work for the next 20 — and that’s what I’m doing today.
Shrubs need trimming and the grass gone over again with the mower — but today, I’m just concentrating on getting the weeds and dead leaves out from in front of the house.
It’s great living in a neighborhood where everyone keeps tidy lawns, but it puts a whole lot of pressure on this girl who was used to living in the country with few neighbors (and none of them cared if the grass was knee high).
My Apple Watch is giving me some crazy low scores today. Pulling weeds doesn’t get the old heart pumping, but raking and sweeping concrete does. Because the active part doesn’t hit 10 minutes to be considered “exercise,” my watch thinks I’m sitting on my butt; therefore, it’s giving a ton of “high resting heart rate” numbers. Stupid watch! My Fitbit recognizes the movement and thinks I’m doing great today.
I think I’m doing great today, too! 🙂
