Mowing Mom's Lawn by jhauptmann at Garmin Connect - Details
Excuse me while I geek out for a minute. Wore the GPS while mowing my mom's lawn this afternoon. I always hear people saying that mowing your lawn is good exercise, but I've never bought that argument, in fact I think it probably does you more harm than good. You breathe in all kinds of crap and I don't think you ever really get your heart rate up all that high. Now I have the data to prove it. Only 132 calories burned in 43 minutes... not even enough for a decent IPA. The map is pretty cool though.

Finished up the hardwood floors this week. I have never installed/finished wood floors before, so this was definitely a learning experience for me. My buddy George was a huge help, not only in loaning me his tools, but also his time. So glad I decided to rip up the tile in the kitchen, having wood floors in both rooms ties the two spaces together. Next up is paint and then I can finally trim out the windows.

I installed two more windows this weekend. Cutting back the clapboards so that the trim would fit was a huge pain, and took the better part of the afternoon on Saturday. Still need to repair/paint some drywall, and install the interior casings, but at least they are weather tight. Six down, seven more to go.

Help me win some much needed bicycle parking for the East Falmouth Elementary School. We have a growing number of bike commuters, but no designated bicycle parking. Our school is one of eight organizations in the running for a Saris bike corral. Voting continues until midnight tomorrow (May 30th), so use the link below and LIKE the Saris page first, then click on the Bike Corral Contest photo. EFES is listed as one of the finalists. We are currently in 2nd place, but only by a couple of votes. You can only vote once so share the page with your friends once you have voted. Thank you!

Got around to tiling the floor this weekend. The shower will have to wait until mid-April when I have a week off. Spent 5 hours yesterday cutting and dry-fitting everything. Way easier than cutting as you go like I've done in the past. Should be able to grout after work this week sometime. Not the greatest pics I know, but you can get the idea.
