Ready for a beer

I am tired! I am going to shower and then sit out back, drink a Newcastle Brown Ale and enjoy the view.

After a 2o mile run this morning, I spent about 4 hours working on our yard/garden. We bought our house 10 months ago, and it seems that almost nothing had been done in the garden for several years. Given the previous owners were quite old, I'm not surprised, but there is a lot to do. I cleared ivy off the wall between our house and the streets, trimmed our front hedges, cut back the ivy from the back walk and stairs and bagged a lot of the climbing vine that was choking all the trees/bushes until I hacked it out over the last week.

I find the gardening/yard work goes better in small doses. I've taken to trying to do an hour or so several weeknights so there isn't so much for weekends. Plus, when there is so much to be done, trying to do to much at once can get discouraging.
