Cross-training, sort of

Today I rode my bike to the store & back, pulling my preschooler on the bike trailer. We went to buy some school supplies for the older kids. I haven't mapped the distance; I think it was about a mile. Later I weeded the part of the back yard inside the patio fence. I pulled up a whole paper grocery bag of goathead sticker plants. They were huge! I had thought the grass was growing well; turns out at least half the green was from those stupid weeds. And we don't have a hoe & couldn't find the shovel, so I was using a hatchet to soften the ground to be able to pull out the roots. I think that actually worked out better than the shovel would have b/c I could aim better & avoid pulling up what grass there was.
