Day 147 - May 31st
After I had been working outside for a couple of hourse, the sun had moved sufficiently into my workspace that I was starting to overheat a bit. So I took a break and grabbed my camera. I decided to take a picture of one of my valuable tools - the groundbreaker. I could not have done most of my yard projects without this tool and frankly, I have no idea where I got it.
I cannot remember how long I've had it nor how it came into my possession. Did I have it in our Ballard house? No clue. I think I did. Just goes to show you that sometimes, the things that are most useful and/or indespensible are right in front of our faces and we don't even notice.
I have it balanced on two of the many, many rocks I've dug up today. The one under the blade part has a chunk missing where I knocked it out with the groundbreaker. It revealed some crystal like rock whose name slips my mind. In the background are all the other tools I've been using today.
