Mowing, bug-spraying, garage sale

I almost forgot that I sprayed the backyard for bugs the other day. I think it may have been last Wednesday, before I went to work. I used one of those bottles you connect to a garden hose. I think I used the Spectricide Triazicide or something. It's supposed to kill a hundred million different kinds of bugs, or so.

Yesterday I mowed the lawn again. Still using the 2nd from highest notch on the mower deck. The grass is still very thick and green.

I mowed during the garage sale. Carrie had a garage sale at our house Friday and Saturday because it was our association garage sale weekend. That's about the only time anyone drives back into our neighborhood. She had a lot of baby clothes and stuff, and still has quite a few clothes left over. I threw in some of our stuff at random - an old sled, a couple things I dug out of the garbage at work, a huge desk we had downstairs (that we've always hated), etc. Anyway, I think she made $180 or so, so it wasn't a total waste. It didn't help that her, Jane and I all ran in the Fort 4 Fitness 10k yesterday morning, so we didn't get a very early start with the garage sale. At any rate, we all got rid of some junk, made some money, and the weather was beautiful for it.

I will make a separate post about the 10k. We all survived and lived to tell about it.

Thanks for the reminder, I just unloaded some Cutters. When I mowed yesterday there was a mass exodus of female mosquitos (the big ones) lifting off in front and behind me. I just took the dog outside and nary a bug in the air.
