Joy Riding?

I had to do it!

There was just no getting around it.....
The grass/weeds were knee high in some places.
And believe me, it was no joy ride.

I started with 5 gallons of fuel at 6:30 AM and finished
with no gallons of fuel at 12:30 PM.
I dodged bees and grasshoppers, fought off Mesquite trees,
had a flat and got her stuck more than once.
Good thing I watched that PBS series on how they built the pyramids'. 
(Used the hoe handle as a pry bar to get her un-stuck).
I am not a big fan of mowing!

After a shower and a quick lunch I created another dog (swept up the dog hair),
did the dishes and generally straightened up.

Because tomorrow I'll be in town running errands all day,
Saturday I'll be selling my wares at the Farmer's Market and
 Sunday I have two young ladies coming over
for a sewing tutorial.
I can't have the place be a wreck with company coming!

How was your day?

Till next time,

We got a wee bit of rain today, but still not enough to make the grass green up and grow once again. This drought has helped in that way. No mowing for me while Mom's family was visiting from Louisiana this past week.No produce either, so no canning to do while company was in.I guess the drought has helped me more than I realized.

Oh Sue, how did the visit go?
I hope your mom enjoyed herself!

To be honest I haven't mowed since late April early May. The drought has been a problem here also along with the grasshoppers!
