Got the lawnmower running today. Sharpened the blade, got new gas, new air filter, checked the plug, oil, and all that nifty stuff.

While mowing, I hit something and bent the blade. The thing I hit was a paper bag with nothing in it, so I'm guessing there was a tree root or a rock or something underneath it. Got a new blade to replace it, but I haven't put it on yet.

Then I got some Weed-B-Gon and a sprayer to hit the lawn to kill the broadleaf stuff that's encroaching, and some ant destroyer for the little fuckers that are undermining the sidewalk. While unhooking the sprayer, I managed to soak myself with water.

I was thinking of attacking some of the tree roots with Frost's Nemesis, but I'm thinking maybe I should wait for a less clumsy day.
