Mowing

UPS delivered my brand new, taxi cab yellow, push lawn mower late yesterday!!!  Too late to start mowing, but boy, I have done some mowing today!!!  This is the first time this year the yard has been mowed.  I actually mowed the wheels off the old push mower.  Poppy mows around the pond and up the road to the garden on his riding mower.   He likes to sit while he's mowing, and mow only in wide open spaces where he doesn't have to hit the brake, back up, or go around anything!!!  That little Cub Cadet looks like it's running about 20 to 25 miles an hour!! He finishes his mowing before I can get my mower cranked!!!  Because it's "my landscaping," I get to mow in, out, and around all this stuff in the yard!!!  Here's my new mower (before I run over something and tear it up)!!  :)  And a look at the grass and weeds!!


I've been worrying about something I posted a few days ago.  I was complaining about the tomato plants dying in our tiny little garden.  Six tomato plants!!!  It took me all of 15 minutes to plant more!!  Actually,  I have nothing to complain about.  I am very thankful that I'm still able to work outside and have a garden.  I need to spend a day helping a real farmer set out hundreds and hundreds of plants!!!

Here it is Friday morning!! I never got back to finish this post yesterday.   I got a cute picture of Dumper.  He likes to sleep under this table... 





   Better get busy.  Times a wasting!!!

Love,
Henny Penny

  1. Dear Henny,
    You revisiting your dead tomato comment and experiencing consternation, is truly sweet. Blessed are the sensitive souls of the world, for they shall see more vividly, feel more deeply and sing more whole-heartedly. The great philosophers and often artists were of this personality type.
    Take extra good care.

    Love,
    Jen

    1. Dear Jen,

      Thank you. What a nice comment. I am bad about saying things and then worrying about what I said. I need to put more thought into what I'm saying.

      How is the weather where you are? Have you been able to work outside any, or get your greenhouse set up? I hope so. You had snow for such a long time...

      Love,
      Henny Penny

  2. Dear Henny,
    I forgot to mention your *new* lawn mower. How exciting! Your arrangement with Poppy is similar to DH and mine.
    I use the reel mower in the front yard and the rider is used in the back. You can take the girl off the farm, but never, never will the farm be removed from the girl! :D

    Love,
    Jen

  3. Hey Jen,
    Oh, I am excited about my new mower!! It's just a small, inexpensive model but just what I need for the landscaping around here!! :) You're right about taking the girl off the farm...that's funny!! I always enjoy your comments.
    Love
    Henny

  4. Mama, you are so sweet, worrying about "complaining." You don't complain. I love you. Your mower is cool! I bet you could out-mow anybody if everyone had the chance to start their engines at the same time!

    I love you!
    Your gur
