Did you know that altitude effects the weight of an object?
I learned this practical lesson the other day while pounding 7 ft. gardening stakes in the garden with a 3 pound sledge hammer. I had placed a sheet of plywood over the gardenbox and put a step stool on it to get me closer to my work but...
I know that hammer weighed waaaay more than 3 pounds as I lifted it over my head to pound in the stakes... by the time I finished it must have weighed 200 pounds - I can't believe I'm that strong! LOL
Another lesson learned this week... if you forget to wear sun screen - you will get a sunburn if you stay out from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm. It doesn't matter if you've already gotten a nice base tan - that sun is brutal. Long gone are the days of my youth where I could lay all day in the sun slathering on baby oil - my Italian and Choctaw heritage have always done me well in the sun - but this sun is different and so am I... I'm too old to not wear sunscreen. Funny thing - in addition to my farmers tan (I do need to find my sleeveless shirts) I noticed that I have a glove line... who ever thought that would be an issue? LOL
