Home and Gardening

I'm getting more domesticated ( Part ?? )

I used a lawnmower for the first time ever last week, to trim our front lawn - I told David to show me the ropes because every girl wants her house to NOT be some "Curb Non-Appeal Disaster", and we usually let it get too long before something is done to it.

So we revved up the trusty lawn mower and I mowed to my heart's content. It was wonderful to see the grass cut short and even, with all the weeds that had shown in between just crushed in the blink of an eye, and oh, the smell of freshly cut grass....

Anyway, from all the downpour and fertilizer that david had put down ( our lawn's only a year old, but was already getting some baldy patches ), it has shot up like crazy again....

Well, I'll probably let it grow another week or so before I venture to mow it down again.

Mowing can be hard work!

Eww.. mowing! I'm waiting on my sister's kids to come stay with us so that they can mow for me. ;)

That's not the chore for me. Allergies keep me from having a green thumb. I'd take laundry any day.

Ahh memories of childhood chores. I hated mowing that damn lawn.

You might need to fumigate next. Looks like you got yourself a bad case of garden gnomes.
