i went to the county compost site to get some free wood chips and dirt. Realized 20 min into my drive that I forgot to bring a shovel. So I bought a toy shovel at Walgreens.
Got lost going there and coming back.
Meant to fill in part of front garden. Instead dug up the back walkway, dug trenches along sidewalk to improve drAinage and used up all my materials before getting near the front garden.
Filled wheelbarrow too full AND on the wrong side of trench. Oops. Did not break wheelbarrow. Did fall over with aid of elder son. Spouse was amused but not surprised at the increasing number of yard-ly things I was adding to my to-do list.
Pushed a bit too hard and worked to sweaty, overheated and out-of-breath exhaustion. Which meant I had to stop before I was done moving dirt. At least I had a grown-up shovel.
Grateful crap: 11 yo took 3yo to park today. Unbeknownst to us the playground is being renovated. When they returned she was distraught. "Somebody destroyed the playground and just left a big pile of sand..." Then she sadly reminisced about all the things she used to be able to do there. It was heartbreaking and humorous at the same time. Both children originally convinced that someone had stolen the playground.
