Tip of the day ~ Part 2
Pink flip flops (no matter how cute)
should not be worn (even if you are wearing a pink shirt)
when mowing a hill! It is . . . a bit dangerous
(and stupid).
But then again, none of you ever do stupid things! :-)
In this far, far away land, it was perfect mowing weather, and since we had this Little Prairie in the Subdivision goin' on in the backyard, I thought I'd attack it. Between the incessant rain and Troy's schedule, we were looking rather trashy. I am actually coming to like the whole mowing scenario (minus that silly hill). The littlest lad even enjoyed my mowing from his post in the stroller. (Yes, yes, calm down - he was far enough away!). In fact, he was thrilled because that boy looooves vacuums, so the mower was like a vacuum on steroids. I am not sure if he ever took his eyes off of it! So, the jungle is gone, we are no longer the talk of the neighborhood, my flip flops are a bit green, my green feet are now clean, my ankle is not twisted and broken, and I just made homemade pretzels and am stuffed!

So thought you were going to say that cut off some toe! I mowed my grass the other day, but will probably need to do it again before long!

Oh Martha, you're a better woman than I! I have this nice man with a mower in the back of his truck who is probably going to put his kids through college working on my yard. :)

Could you email me your phone number? sarahgbs@yahoo.com
I have this strong urge to chat with you... or, maybe you could email me a hug... I feel the need for it right now. Wish I could walk up a few stairs and visit...
Please, excuse my pity party, it is getting late, and I am a bit moody.
By the way, I mowed my grass again today... no, I did not wear flip-flops, though.

Angie, I would probably get a nice man with a mower in the back of his truck if my Man was not in college. But then again, if he wasn't in college, chances are I wouldn't be mowing the yard either!

Sarah, sorry I did not see your comment until the next morning. If you did live a few steps away, I might still be pestering you for bread every once in awhile. :-)

I had to take a second look at your post. I thought it said you broke your ankle! Whew! Green feet are bad enough. :)

I'm afraid I'm not the grass-mowing type, although I've come inside from working in the yard with my flip-flops all shades of dirty!
And the pretzels, they sound great!
