Mowing

I had the pleasure of mowing our lawn today. This is a chore usually assigned to Ryan these days, but his days have been very busy of late and it was more than a tad neglected. Since he gets up at the crack of the crack to work a landscaping job already, it is hard to face when he gets home. AND, when I got up this morning and walked outside and saw how overcast and cool it was for an Arizona morning in June, I knew I had to do something out there. Add to it the empty green barrel...need I say more? I just love how it looks when it is done, and I love mowing in patterns and trying to figure out the most efficient way to do it. It makes me feel like I went to the gym and worked out, only this is FUN working out. The only trouble is, it leads to weeding, trimming and pruning. Hm. All in all, it was a morning in heaven. Next step: fertilizer. Then I can mow green grass instead of brown, crunchy wannabe grass. I really hate having the worst looking lawn on the street. Definitely a downer.

Hey, you neglected to mention that you left the mower on for half an hour unattended. :)

Oh, it was such a nice day today! We went for a walk because for once it was cool enough to do it. Of course the sun popped out during the hour we were outside...but it was worth it anyway. :)

you and my mom really should have been sisters. she loves mowing the lawn too. Do you think she gets to garden in heaven? I think so. It wouldn't be paradise without it.
