Whew.. a long day. After working, I went straight out to do some mowing.  Now, while I have improved my health and such over the past few years, the yard at my fairly new house is a beast.  It’s in the mountains.  Sure, we’re lucky in the sense that we have a yard at all, but the front yard is easily at a 45 degree angle. Heh.  It’s crazy.

This isn’t me, but it’s how I feel when I mow.

It is a serious workout. I’m constantly sweating, but even more strenuous is the workout my legs and ankles get from having to constantly balance myself and keep myself from tumbling down the hill, and keeping the mower from flipping over and toppling end over end down to the bottom of the hill/mountain.

It’s all good though, and like I said, is a tremendous workout, so there’s a big sense of accomplishment when it’s done.  It’s almost actually enjoyable, in comparison to the yard at our last house.  The summer temperatures and humidity of the Raleigh/Durham area are nasty, and I don’t miss them at all.  Over here in the mountains? Perfect.

There’s also some news on the Souls of Astraeus audiobook.  I’ll save that for this coming Friday’s post!
