I think I should shave my legs. Soon. Very soon.
What do you think?
Max is gonna help.
OK, I admit, it isn't hair. It's grass. And here is how I got it on my legs.
I gave up on trying to get the mower started. I'm going to have a "broken" rotator cuff if I don't quit yanking on that cord! So I got out the weed eater and "mowed" the grass with it. Not too efficient, not a nice even finish on the lawn, but at least it isn't twelve inches tall!
Here's the story: Three years ago I bought my mower. I decided that I didn't need the electric starter, because I could pull the cord to start it. And I didn't have a lot of problem in the beginning. However, I've used it ten or twelve times, three or four times each year I've lived here. And it seems to be more difficult each year. When I get it out for the first time every year, I have a LOT of trouble getting it started, and then it is OK for the rest of the season.
This year, I've tried for four days to start the dang thing, without success. And my shoulder is getting so sore I can hardly stand it. I've decided I need to sell this one and buy an electric. With my little patch of grass, I don't need anything heavy duty, but I need something that will start!!
I also finished the railing on the ramp today. WHEW! Now all I have to do is replace a ton of floor boards on the ramp. sighhh. There is never an end to the work.
And then, there is the scrub oak.
And planting seeds.
And painting the well house.
And refinishing the deck.
And paining the deck.
And touch up painting inside the house.
