First Sunburn of the Year

Well, it’s March 11th and I’ve got my first sunburn – that didn’t take long. 😉

I started in the yard this morning around 10a and finished up around dinner. I got the lawn mowed, edged, etc. Then, I leveled a 9′ x 3′ strip in the backyard for new garden beds. (I never expected that to be the intense project that it was!)

With the leveling finished, I laid garden fabric, cut cedar for two new planters and put those together. I went ahead and added a rock walkway to match the rest of the garden. Afterwards, I loaded those planters with organic soil so they’ll be ready for my plants this week.

I really didn’t expect to work that hard today, but it was such a pretty day, I just kept going. Kinda like when Forrest Gump went for a run and ended up running for 3 years, 2 months, 14 days, and 16 hours, right?!

Once I get the garden planted, I’ll update my garden set on Flickr.

Long story short – very tired, very sore and *very* sunburned. 🙂

UPDATE: I just checked and… no, we don’t have any elephant lube.

Note to self: Get some elephant lube.

  1. Sunscreen! Then you don’t need elephant lube. G has a “red-neck” already. After playing outside every day for a week he’s gotten a little color each day that turned into a nice tan.

  2. Both of my boys have their “red neck” tans as a result of a beautiful Saturday afternoon of baseball and tball practices.
