Just put the beers on ice myself, getting ready to do the same.... mow/trim my own yard, oil/filter changes on the mowers, fresh blades, powerwash the trailers/equipment, etc, etc, etc!

Glad I bought a 12 pack!

Does it seem like days off aren't really days off?

Never really a 'day off' but..... It IS nice to be working at a more relaxed pace, thats for sure! And the kick a$$ weather combined with the cold ones within arms reach makes it worth while!

Enjoy the day guys! Hope all of your seasons are busy ones.

i always sharpen blades and stuff on the last day of work each week. i just do it as soon as i get home since i'm already dirty and everything.

i'm weird because i hate to get dirty on days i don't work. i don't like to get outside and get sweaty and stuff on my off days. sometimes it's unavoidable but i try to avoid it if at all possible. i do "work" around the house on days where i already work since i'm already sweaty and whatever.
