Our back 40 has needed mowing
for weeks now. With all the rain we’ve been having the grass hasn’t been able
to dry out in-between the showers, so it’s really gotten out of hand. I
finally tackled it today, but I didn’t finish cause it’s a big yard and
I’m no spring chicken.
While I was pushing the ginormous grass can further back into the
yard (there’s a clue, I should have been pulling it), the can rolled
away from me and pulled me down with it. I slipped and fell (hard, hit
my knee as I was going down and ended up on my side, did a half
face-plant thing), and landed almost inside the dern thing. I even said
to myself, out-loud, “Man, that hurt.” I’m okay, just sore and will be
even more so in the morning, I’m sure.
If it doesn’t rain tomorrow I’m hoping to finish up and pull out the
weed eater to get what the lawn mower can’t reach. It’s my least
favorite thing to do, but it’s so satisfying afterward to see the lawn
looking all leveled out and smelling like something I want to bottle.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by! I post things I craft or make in the kitchen and sometimes talk about my family. I'm the mom of identical twin daughters who are all grown up now, and I've been married for almost 40 years. My life isn't very exciting, but I like it that way. Whether you are a subscriber or not, I hope I've shared something you can relate to and feel at home here in my little house out back.
