Man about the yard

The goings-on this weekend have been domestic. Visits to the grandparents' are cancelled as E fights off the remains of a virus. L and I slept late this morning, since E was kind enough to accommodate. Aside from a brief interval of rain, the weather has also been cooperative.

The grass is receiving its first haircut of the year, thanks to a delay engendered by a faulty trickle charger and a dead mower battery. Seventy-five dollars later, I have a new, more reliable charger and a new battery, along with a functional mower. The neighbors, I feel sure, are happy.

Also finally getting to work on a new bed where the old deck used to be. Pictures will be along shortly.
