But first, I wanted to mow the grass while it is dry. We had an old lawn mower that I dearly loved. It cranked right up...it mowed just right....but after many years of faithful mowing, it died. Really, it just died. So after giving the poor dead thing to our neighbor who will probably be very successful at resurrecting it, we bought a new mower. The one I was using today to mow the grass. The one that WOULD NOT crank. I do not love the new mower.
After trying and I mean really I did try to get it cranked, I called my oh, so busy husband at work and said, if you don't want me to beat this new mower with a baseball bat...(we don't even own a baseball bat)...then you'd better come home and get it cranked! He came and he cranked. First time, first pull, it cranked. I think I have it figured out, the new lawn mower doesn't like me. I don't think we will be best friends. If rain wasn't in the forecast for tonight, I would have just let the grass grow.
But I got that done, cleaned one bathroom and have a pound cake in the oven. We're having a pot luck dinner for the choir tomorrow nite, and I'm taking a pound cake. Cooking sweets right now is really bad for my diet! Maybe the mowing will offset
P.S. as a tribute to my husband, he didn't even fuss at leaving work to come home and crank the mower! He's really sweet!!
