It's super frustrating.
So I did thew things I COULD do. It is glorious out. I raked the couple hundred black walnuts up and then mowed the lawn. i bought an old "reel mower" off craigslist. It needs to be sharpened but it works pretty well. I'm not a perfect lawn guy - if I was this thing would make me insane.
Now I'm going through mail and chilling. All in all a good day.
