It's cold season.
Mine started off with just an occasional tickle of the throat and runny nose. Now I've got a full-blown sneezing, coughing, unable-to-breathe, head-full-of-mucous super cold on my hands. Add to that, I've also come down with strep throat and I'm not exactly the most pleasant person to be around right now.
The onset of fall also means no more mowing the lawn, no more pulling weeds, and no more digging holes. Gardening season is over folks, and I couldn't be more happy about it. For some odd reason, I've grown to have a strong aversion to everything landscaping/gardening-related (most likely due to a childhood of long summers of forced labor at the family homestead). Luckily, my girlfriend finally got my butt in gear.
Those gnarly old tree stumps are now gone and the holes filled and turfed-over.
Still to go:
*Remove old, broken brick
*Spray for weeds
*Plant vegetable garden
