I hate yard work. There is a reason its called "yard work" instead of "yard recreation" or "yard fun". Its because its work! And I don't hate working. Everyone who knows me knows I work a LOT, but for some reason yard work is something I just could do without. Maybe its because of all the bugs. I don't like bugs, and living next to a lake in Oklahoma, there are so many different kinds of insects and spiders (and other creepy crawlies) that it staggers the imagination. Or maybe its just that I would rather be doing something else.
Take today for example. I was going to mow my yard and a few other things early in the morning. But I ran into a computer problem that just begged to be solved. So, I worked on it instead. This little problem took quite a while to figure out, but I managed to do it, and learn a few cool things in the process. So, I didn't get to my yard until about 6pm this evening. However, that was plenty of time to mow, run the weed-eater, and cut down some brush growing back behind my property.
My yard is so small too, it shouldn't be that hard to maintain, yet I still don't like doing it.
Some of my neighbors are retired, and it seems to me that they have nothing much else to do but work in their yards. I could find a million other things, but sometimes I think they compete on how nice a yard each one of them can get. They are always out there doing something. I didn't know that much time could actually be spent productively in a yard, but they seem busy. That is one competition they can have, and I do not mind losing. Though I think my neighbors wish I spent more time in my yard as well. Something about property values....
Tomorrow I need to do more work out there. I wonder what time I will get around to it?? Don't count on seeing me out early in morning, evening is a safer bet.
