the First Cut

Because my life - and the relaying of it - isn't mundane enough, you only get what I know.

....and some days that ain't much.

Like much of the country, almost a month after the fact, we are actually experiencing Spring. Some years we go right from Winter to Summer, but we are kind of feeling Spring weather.

Yesterday, I cut the lawn for the first time. It wasn't horribly long in most places, but it is supposed to rain for the next 2-3 days, and this might be the only chance I get to do it.

And I got to do it in shorts, as we pushed 70 degrees.

Last year, I didn't cut the lawn for the first time until mid-May. Part of that was due to weather, part to my travel schedule.

It was nice to be out, showing off my gams to the neighbors and passers-by as I walked back and forth making stripes in the lawn.

I was really just hoping to get my daily dose of Vitamin D.

Heck, we only officially put the snow blower away (well, 710 did, "we" did not) and brought out the lawn mower, which started up on the first pull - not bad for a 14 year old mower.

Still it was nice to have a few purdy days. Petey liked taking longer walks and spending time roaming around the yard, eating bunny poop, deep poop and probably wild turkey poop too. I don't see the appeal, but I'm not a dog.

We were able to do a First Mow a couple of weeks ago ... then it turned chilly again, and now it's raining ... ah, well, what to do?
