I've had an informal goal this month of low-spend, if not no-spend, but the electric weed trimmer finally died. I'm surprised it lasted this long. The gas-powered one needs to go back to the shop, it leaks fuel. Looks like it's time to shop around. I have a number of Ryobi tools that use the same batteries, I wonder how long a battery would last in a trimmer in a big yard? I'm probably still best dragging the long power cord and finding another cheap electric one.

The front yard is mowed and some of the trimming is finished. The worst of it along the NW side of the house is where it got overheated and died. I did finish that stretch first.

The reason I came to post is that I finally figured out what is up with my phone app for Google Fit and have it again tracking my steps. It doesn't make a difference around the house during the day but it renders a nice map of the neighborhood when I walk the dogs. This is a new phone and I hadn't completely set it up when I logged on.
