We're trying to do a good job of having at least one post per day, and Jennifer is doing a pretty good job of keeping that pace, but today she is uber busy at work. I don't have much time either, but I wanted to throw in a quick teaser about some upcoming posts.
I'm an Assistant Project Manager for one of the largest general contractors in the country. As such, I get a few perks. One of these perks is that I can rent equipment for the weekend from our company-owned equipment rental and supply company. I only pay the cost of delivery. I'm on the short list this weekend for a mini excavator.
A few weekends ago I took it upon myself to take a chainsaw to all the boxwoods in our front planting areas. I broke a shovel trying to get the roots out, so I'm going to thoroughly enjoy ripping those suckers up with a large machine. I'm also going to take care of all the river stones in the planters. I'll throw some topsoil and mulch on when I'm done, and then Jennifer and I can talk about what to plant in the fall.
We've got three old gas lanterns around the house that haven't worked for at least 5 years. The paint is chipping, the glass is falling out, and there are leaves in the gas line. My dad is coming down this weekend to help me plug up the lines in the basement so I can pull these eyesores out of the ground. And who knows, maybe Jennifer can save the cherry tree she bought a while back and we can plant it there.
In other news, I tuned up my front derailleur and re-taped my handlebars. Someone come to Birmingham and ride with me. Early Christmas list frontrunner: new cycling shoes.
