Mostly, I concentrated on getting comfortable with where the various controls are. I'd had the old one so long I didn't even have to think about how to make it do what I wanted. Not quite there with this one yet.
As you can imagine, by this late in the spring, the yard looked more like a hayfield. But I got the part down by the road hacked off. Now it looks like a short hayfield. That's about half of what I mow.
Before I could even start this, I had to go pop out a bunch of autumn olive saplings. 27 of them, to be exact. They are the worst thing about the years I don't manage to keep things mowed. They just sprout overnight. It seems that way, anyway.
In other news: I had a headache this morning, but mangaged to putter at some bookkeeping kinds of things. Got groceries in the late afternoon. You can tell it's a holiday weekend in a tourist town. Traffic was nuts. One major disappointment- I did not get a book award that I thought I had a good shot at. O well.
Tomorrow is a vendor event.
