How did your visit go with your Son?
Looks like many folks this time of the
year are getting their trees trimmed.
I suppose with all the rain we've been
having, everything has over grown and
needs major cutting back.
It all cost money when you hired someone
to come cut grass or trim trees and bushes
and i've noticed lots of folks around here
have done that. Hiring someone to do that
work for them.
I've always been the one to mow the lawn,
learned at a young age and brought it to both
my marriages, manicuring everything to look
nice and all.
Sure it is physical work, but I look at it
as exercise and why spend money at a
club that I could not commit to for even
a month when I can walk the mower and
edge, weedeat all for free.
Of course it doesn't come without its
aggravation tho. Esp. when you work
hard to make your front lawn look
immaculate until a neighbor or walker
with their dogs doing their business
and leaving a pile right there sitting
up high on our nicely cut lawn.
Anyway......that didnt seem to disturb my
husband as much as I, so I handed over the
mower reigns and now he's been cutting
it for the past few yrs. using his riding mower.
Anyway.....With trimming the tree, I prayered
for courage to take the electric trimmer out
and get started on this task instead of waiting
for the neighbor to call with the man next door
ready for a signature and trim.
The tree is in our yard and I had been aware
of the over grown limbs hanging over in her
yard and even mentioned to husband, but.....
like most things, it will get done in his time
and not mine.
Me, if something needs getting done, I either
do it myself or try to remain patient until he
does it. Sometimes, the wait is too long and
I have to bulk up and take responsibility for
With him being 10 yrs older than I, I have
to be grateful that he is still able to get some
of these difficult projects done for us.
So, when he took over that heavy electric
trimmer and proceeded to cut the limbs ,
we both managed to get it done together
and no one got hurt. And the cost of the
electric trimmer payed itself off quickly.
Okay, im just rambling.....
Did you go out of town already Mark?
Yesterday, I watered before 5am and pulled
weeds taking a dip in the pool afterwards to
cool off before calling it a day. Today....well....
right now, im enjoy coffee and country music.
The day will come soon enough.
