The prediction was for a possibility of rain this afternoon, so I didn't go get a new Sawzall blade at lunch. But, since it was still sunny going home, I stopped at Home Depot and bought one (actually, I bought a set of 12 various ones, after figuring out I'd be saving over $6 if I didn't buy them individually).
So, when I got home and was still fresh, I finished raking the side lawn and then re-seeded it (using up the small bag of grass seed I'd bought, thinking it was more than enough. NOT!)
Then I ran an extension cord out to the old mailbox site and got out the garden seat (you'll see it in the photo). However, I want to cut this as deep down as I can, so the seat didn't work. I ended up lying in the ditch and cutting it. The sawzall and new blade went through that 4-inch pipe like butter! I timed it and it took less than 3 minutes!!
I dug out the mud and gunk at each end of the driveway culvert (it fills in every year, it seems) and used that dirt to refill the hole I'd dug out around the pipe. I overfilled it, knowing that the dirt will settle. I'll wait until I rake the ditch and then re-seed it as well.
Dinner was the last of the cold chicken legs and the last of the potato salad. BTW, I was smart enough to know I'd made too much food this weekend, so after I ate my ribs on Sunday, the rest of the ribs went into the freezer.
My brother was kind enough to email me and remind me I was supposed to call my Mother, so I did (while feeling bad I'd forgotten!)I watched TV for a while, and then got bored. So I switched to reading until I dozed off. When I woke up 11:30 PM, I shut off the lights and went to sleep for real.
