What I Learned

With the batteries all charged up when I got home today, I decided to break out the weed whacker and the hedge trimmer and do some more yard work.
The weed whacking was simple enough, but the hedge trimming was something of a learning experience.
Here are the things I learned:

1. There's a fine line between "trimming" and "butchering."
2. I don't know where that line is.
3. When you trim hedges, stuff flies everywhere, sometimes even ending up inside your pants pockets.
4. Bees don't like it when you chop up their hangouts.
5. Trimming my hedges will be an all-day (or most of the day) project.
6. I need a ladder.
