My wife is pregnant. With twins. They’re due in May.
I am trying to do everything I can to de-complicate my life and free up as much time as possible when they arrive. Diapers don’t change themselves!
So I hired a lawn service.
But the lawn service wasn’t too hot.
So I fired the lawn service.
Or more to the point, I just started mowing my own lawn again, and didn’t bother calling when they stopped showing up.
Actually, I hired a lawn service for two reasons: First, because my wife is having twins. Second, because my old lawn mower finally gave up the ghost and died. After 11 years sitting out in the rain, it just stopped working. I have no idea why.
So I had to get a new mower- and I knew that I wanted a cordless electric mower. My last mower was electric and I liked it, BUT- I hated the cord. This was my chance to go cordless. After reading a bunch of mower reviews online I finally settled on the lawnmower you see below. I like it.
After 11 years of having a tripping over a cord, flinging a cord, getting the cord wrapped around trees...using this mower is like running down the street naked at midnight. (Not that I know what that feels like.) It’s just liberating!
I actually hated to hire someone to mow my lawn, because it is a job I really like.
Mowing the lawn is just another chance to be outside. I like being outside, so do some of my favorite people. For instance, this little girl below loves being outdoors.
She’s not the only one who helps. In fact, I get help from the whole community. The boy below is always happy to give a helping ummm…hand.
So that’s it. Not much happening in the garden. I bought a new lawn mower. I mowed the lawn. Afterward I sat on the bench with my little red headed ground squirrel while the stupid cat cried at the front door.
It was fun!
