Today’s forecast again calls for rain. Now I know we shouldn’t complain too much about the abundance of rainfall as our area has been in a severe drought for the past few years. It is heartening to see our lakes and streams begin to return to normal water levels, and I am sure farmers are delighted that their crops are enjoying the benefits of this mild and wet spring.
Secretly I am kind of happy it is raining every day, for one reason. I can’t mow the grass, a chore I very much do NOT enjoy. However if it doesn’t let up soon, I will need to hire a bushhog as my weed infested yard is growing taller and taller by the day. Bill just mowed it last week and already the grass is taller then before he took a mower to it.
Maybe it won’t rain today and I can tackle the lawn in the morning, but then maybe I will be “forced”‘ to have to wait till Saturday. I just need to remind myself as I drag out the mower that I am burning calories, getting in shape, toning those muscles, breathing in pollen, wanting a drink, wishing I had self cutting grass…
You know what I mean.
