Ok, so I underestimated how long the bathroom trim would take…and the other repairs I would have to do because of the new trim. But we’re about 98% complete- just one more piece to put into place and a nice final coat of paint, and we’re good to go…(pun intended)
I also tackled the yard again this weekend- specifically the planting of a new “Limelight” Hydrangea bush I talked about on my other blog here. I also pulled out a ton of weeds (thistles anyone?) and mowed the front lawn with our new push mower. My family teases me a
bit lot about that purchase- I guess my dad used one back when he was a kid to mow his parent’s lawn- but I like it.
I get the extra exercise to justify having ice cream when I want it.
I save the gross national product of small Eastern European country in gas.
It’s eco-friendly-and we like looking like wannabe hipsters.
It’s quiet (so if I feel the need to go mow the grass at 3am I can)
If you squint when you see me, it sorta looks like I’m riding around my yard on a Segway.
And I don’t have to furiously pull like a madwoman to get it to turn-over and start. (Our gas mower is finicky and I guess I don’t have the right touch…)
So- join the revolution- or feel free to laugh at me from your riding mower. Whatever…
