Oh please. You know me better than that.
What I meant was that my lawn-trimming plan was based on the necessity of having a non-wet day outside, and after several weeks of non-stop rain, the grass was getting... well, I worried about having to send out search parties when the dog went out in the morning. I was starting to daydream about getting a couple sheep for grass-trimming.
Luckily, it stopped pouring long enough for me to do the necessary yard work, but it turns out that there's a guy actually running a business for problems like that one. This guy rents out goats to clear out "unwanted vegetation and noxious weeds." Of course, they'd probably also clear out the roses. Might almost be worth it -- according to the article, the goats are especially fond of eating blackberry bushes.
Exercise du jour: After several doses of vitamin I, the swelling around the knees has gone down. Going for three miles of walking.
Fail. Though I swear to God it's not my fault. For once, no guilt. Some pain though. For some reason even though I have gone out of my way not to use or abuse them, the knees are still friggin' complaining. I don't know what I did to piss them off. I'd swear the bicycle seat was the right height -- and anyway, I've been riding that bike for several years without the knees raising a fuss once. Maybe I've shrunk and that's why I can't ride a bike without knee complaints.
