The grass outside was so tall and moist that it looks more like I used a scythe on it instead of a mower. I took my time using the weed whacker to edge along the driveway and side of the garden and part of the front yard. Not wanting to run it until the motor overheated I came in periodically to do office work. I mowed before the mosquitoes were too much around and last thing I took out some mosquito dunks and broke them in to pieces to drop in bird baths, the saucers under potted plants, etc.
For tomorrow I'll go through my various pairs of yoga pants and decide what fits best (thank dog for spandex!) and head to the gym for a while after I do some museum volunteer work. In choosing an audio book to take along I decided to follow up a reference I had to look up while reading the last Strike novel. At one point there is a conversation about Morlocks - all of this time and I have never read H.G. Wells' The Time Machine. She also references Anna Karenina and Spencer's The Fairy Queen, and there is no way I'm going to reread Karenina or start the other, but I am interested in Wells. With Tolstoy, once is more than enough.
