Today's projects were taking care of different yard issues. The biggest being mowing the yard. In the summer, I try to mow the grass once a week. I think it was three weeks ago when I moved the grass last. In the past three weeks, when I had the time to get out an mow, it was raining. When it it was not raining, I had other things to do, mostly taking try of the family.
I managed to get the weeds pulled out from around the brushes in front of the house. The brushes looks really good this year with the blooming. I also put down some grass seed in a couple patches where I had no grass or dead grass. I am not sure if I put enough grass down but I figure I can put more grass seed down if I need too.
I also made a trip to Lowe's and got a filter and oil for my lawnmower, a garden rake, and a weed eater. I already changed the filter and I will add some oil to the lawnmower the next time I use it. The garden rake will make it easier to clean the dead grass and spread the dirt when I put new soil from the compost pile down. I raked a little around the brushes after I pulled the weeds today. I heard it help things grown better if you loosen the soil and remove the dead grass around the yard. The weed eater will make it easier to cut the grass around the tress and brushes and the walkways.
The other project was cleaning out the car and checking the fluids in the car to get the car read for my trip tomorrow. Added a little bit of oil and some coolant. I hope the car is good to go now. I am looking forward to going to Cowpens and King's Mountain battlefields. I hope it does not rain much tomorrow or at least holds off until after five o'clock.
