Holy Crap, Gardening Happened!!
My son missed three days of school last week with the flu. Yesterday and today, my poor wife came down with the same illness. Or, at least the same symptoms. I, being the most excellent husband that I am, called in sick to work so I could get my son to school and watch my daughter as my wife rested. Funny, because if I were the one ill, I would have absolutely gone to work. Who wants to waste a sick day being sick?
Both yesterday and today we topped out at nearly 80F (26C). That timed with a nap by both the two year old and my wife allowed me to get outside a little. I was able to fill a five gallon bucket full of weeds in no time flat. I would also like to throw in that included a vast majority of the yard, thus there aren't many weeds! Take that! Actually, we don't get our weeds until spring, and they continue through until late June or July when the 100F+ (38C+) kills them off.
I was also able to get in a little fertilizing and some pruning. Look at me go.
