Green shoes......I love it!
Today, I mowed my lawn with my new lawn mower. I even remembered to buy a small gas can (one of the items on my list!) and get it filled just for mowing. It was like riding a bike. You just don't forget how to do some things and this is one of them. I haven't had to mow for more than 4 years now. I have to say that I've missed doing it. I always enjoy anything that gets me outside........even if the weather was 90* and a humidity factor that was overwhelming! I had kept an older pair of shoes--just for this job, mind you--and dug them out for my new responsibility! Wow, the grass was thick. The former owners had left the sprinkler system on to run a few times a week. So even though we hadn't had rain for several weeks, my lawn was quite plush. Now all I need to complete my yard duties will require me to add to my ever growing list. A weed wacker! Maybe I'll buy a green one to match my shoes!
