Haircuts & Lawn Care

March 29, 2009

Those are two things I really can’t stand doing, but love when they’re done. I love my hair super-short, and I love my lawn looking freshly cut. It’s just the actual haircut and the lawn mowing that I don’t like much.

In any case, despite predictions of a weekend full of rain and high winds, today was almost perfect … and plenty good for the first lawn cutting of the year.

Maybe best of all, the lawn mower started right up with a new tank of gas and last year’s oil. Gotta go get some new oil, though. After the lawn, I fixed two sprinkler heads that needed to be capped, and ran out to Home Depot to buy some much-needed tools.

Spring is most certainly here.

Only downside is that I’m dead tired and sore from head to toe. I’m gonna pay the price tomorrow for this sudden burst of energy. Good thing Sean’s just about old enough to start cutting the lawn. One more summer and then it’s all his….

    Personally, I LOVE to cut the lawn… gives me time to think, and an easy to see results. Something soothing in the lack of deep thinking needed for a task.

    Might also be that reminds me of growing up… finally old enough to cut the lawn!

    As a self-employed person who works from home in a wonderfully quiet house, and also stays awake 3+ hours after everyone else goes to sleep, more time to think is the last thing I need. 🙂
