The dangers of yard work

Yesterday the kiddo and I spent 7+ hours out in the yard. It was awesome to be outside and getting as much yard work done as we did. The yard looks so much better and the gardens are starting to look great, my hands, on the other hand (no pun intended) not so much.

I don’t mind the dirt stains – those wear off relatively quickly. My nails grow back pretty fast. However, the copious amounts of cuts and mysterious bug bites…those I loathe. I had no idea that the act of pulling weeds could slice one’s flesh open as easily as it did.

I’m taking today easy. I have an outing this afternoon as well as a graduation party tonight. There’s always tomorrow to finish weeding the gardens and hanging out in the wilds of my yard.
