Until now, I never...
Mowed the Lawn with my Brand New Lawn Mower


I am so happy to have a new lawn mower, but I was really hoping that it would come with a built-in lawn-mowing man.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it came with at least a part-time one.  But the grass has been growing like gang-busters lately, and I really couldn’t stand it any longer, so today I decided to give the new lawn mower a spin for myself, and I have to say, it was pretty excellent.  It starts with an effortless pull of the wire pulley thing (I’m sure there’s a better word for this – but you know what I mean) and the clippings just go back down in the grass instead of spit out the side or into some icky bag you have to empty.  Our lawn in small, so it only takes a few minutes.  I only hate having to lug it down the steps to do the parking strip.  Oh well.  The yard looks just so nice and tidy with a freshly cut lawn.
