Yesterday was the 1st official cutting of the year. We had mowed a few places here and there in the last couple of weeks, but yesterday I did it all. I actually like mowing-it gets me outside, I get a little sun (a little too much yesterday-got some pink), and it's such an accomplishment when I am all done. I can actually see what I have done and it feels like I just got the gold medal in the mowing category. BUT--yesteday I am not sure I would have even gotten a consolation prize. I was almost done mowing, I moved our trailer out of the way so I could mow under it, I had done SO good all day,
I only mowed over one tiny evergreen tree that I couldn't see, hadn't mowed anything over all day (ha), then I did it--I ran over a small rope that had been under the trailer and it wrapped itself up tight on one blade. I tried getting it off-got about 1/2 of if, but the rest had to wait until 6:30pm when Quay got home. My hero got it off in under 10 minutes. So then I proceeded to get the weed eater out to do some trimming. I got a good start on that until my string ran out, but Ryder informed me that we have more in the garage and by golly he was right! So I filled it up with trimmer string and away I went; well for another couple of minutes until it ran out of gas. Bleh!!! I couldn't find the mixed gas for it so I quit trimming also.
