Yesterday, I had to take care of the fallen leaves. My knee has been acting up. but Tam's got a torn intercostal, and is working a lot, so it was my job.
The new electric lawnmower has a bagging attachment and does a pretty good job. The lawn needed mowing anyway, and so -- I mowed 'em. Filled three big leaf bags (all I had) and got all of the front yard and about a third of the back.
Didn't do my knee any good at all. It started to hurt and was hot by bedtime. I slept with a cold pack on it -- heck of a thing, thin sweat pants, cold pack over that, a hand towel wrapped over that and an electric blanket over all of me -- but it is worse this morning. I'm off to soak in the tub, then try to get some things done.
