Yard Work

This isn't even the grass after I got done. It's after Roman and Rocky spent a couple more hours working on the grass. It needed some major edging, and it looks great now.

Nettie made a lawn mowing schedule for us this week so we make sure that everyone takes their turn. It was my turn this week. My Wednesday evening plans didn't happen so I decided to mow. First of all I have probably only ever mowed the grass 2 or 3 times in my entire life and that was probably at least 15 or more years ago. I haven't really touched a lawn mower since then. I couldn't get it started forever and after calling Nettie a bazillion times I finally figured it out. I had to call her several more times with other questions. Our yard is a beast. By the time I got to the front it was getting dark, but I was determined to finish. Nettie did a beautiful job the week before, but I was just racing to get it done. It's not really pretty, but the grass is mowed. The best part is I don't have to do it again for 5 more turns. After I finished I needed to be reminded why I wanted to live in a house. On the upside, I did burn 350 calories while mowing.


  1. I LOVE mowing the lawn. Its therapeutic. Of course growing up, I had a ride on, which took much of the labor out.

  2. Not sure what's worse? Snow removal or mowing?

    Jury is still out on that one.

  3. I love mowing as well. I would much rather be out mowing than doing dishes. Too bad Justin does feel the opposite.

  4. Funny! One day you'll be saying how easy it is and you can't believe how hard it started out being. You'll be pro before you know it!
