I think the guys have been keeping a secret from me all of my life. And I think I might have just discovered a key to it.

They are So much fun! Seriously, why didn't I ever get to play with these before? OK, I have used a power-screwdriver before ... that was some small fun. (**update, it was a power-drill, my mistake. I couldn't even think of the right word!)
But today I decided to try and get a little bit cleaned up outside in between rain showers. The side yard is kind of messy b/c of the remodel. I didn't want to get all muddy and wet by pulling the weeds out by hand, so I grabbed the weed-eater. The battery powered, very mighty, powerful Tool. And after figuring out how it works - which is pretty easy - I got to work.
I had such fun whacking down those weeds and tall grass I looked for more places to use that Power Tool. Ooh - the raspberries! Earlier in the spring we took out one row of our raspberries. It had just become too crazy, and we are thinking of planting something else there, plus we still have a row for our own eating. Well, the grass and weeds got a little out of hand there. Not too bad, but enough that I needed to use the Power Tool on it. And then I decided to go around the edge of the lawn. The Boy will be mowing it soon enough and so I was just helping him out.
You would think that growing up with 7 brothers I might have had more exposure to power tools. However with 7 boys hogging them up, I didn't get any chance to play with them. I have never operated a chain saw. Sigh.
But, hey, at least I can use the weed eater! And the lawn mower. Which I actually like to do. Sometimes.
