I went out at lunch and fixed the lawn mower. It was a clogged air filter that was all mucked up with grass and dirt. I also bought a new spark plug yesterday so I put that in too. I did have to use the starter fluid to get it going but it worked.
I also tried out the new leaf blower that I bought last night. It works pretty well. Holding it for a long time is hard but not nearly as hard as raking the whole yard.
So I blew the leaves away and moved the lawn at lunch. Working from home is good.
