Mowing grass Feed

Goodness, is it Friday?

Yeah, I guess it is.  I had the stretch videos on today's calendar.  That was nice.  I did those and ate and then I cooled down for a bit before going out and mowing my front lawn.  It's in the 90's here and it's extremely hot. I should have waited until later in the day to mow, but I wanted to get it done.  Plus, it looks like there is a storm coming up now.  So, if I had waited, the grass would have been too wet to mow.  I'm glad it's done.  The neighbor across the street lets his go for weeks without mowing it.  He finally did it yesterday and I swear there were about five inches of grass clippings in the damn street.  He really needs to mow more often.  It's so annoying!

So, I'm sitting in my room with the air conditioner and the fan going.  I've cooled down quite a bit from being outside.  When I came in, I had to take off every piece of clothing I had on as I was soaked to the skin.  I'm now in nice dry clothes and I just heard thunder! I love storms, so that makes me happy.  As long as the power doesn't go out when I need to fix dinner. lol  I might go out and sit on the porch and enjoy the storm.  I love to sit out there and see the lightning and rain.  It also smells so nice when it rains in the summer!

I am pretty comfy here in my room at the moment, so I might not make it out there :P  I really wanted to go to Starbucks earlier, but my friend didn't want to go. It was way too hot for me to drive my car over there as I didn't plan to stay.  I was just going to get a cascara latte and come back.  In her car with air, this would have been fine.  In my car without air, it would have not! :P


What day is this again?

So, I was sitting in my room relaxing and thought about the fact that I needed to mow the back lawn.  I didn't really want to mow, but I needed to.  I went out and did the entire backyard.  I was happy to have that done.  I enjoyed listening to Welcome to Night Vale while mowing.  That at least made it more fun!  I came in and relaxed a bit and then did my workouts.

I am not sure what the rest of the evening holds in store for me.   I might run out to the park for a bit, and I might not.  I'm really tired.  A friend of mine got a jeep and she picked me up in it yesterday.  I still have a headache and backache from riding in that damn thing.  I don't see the appeal of them at all.  She says "they are fun!"  I say, they suck and are painful! LOL  

 


Goodness!

So, I loaded my lawn mower up in my car today.  That was not fun.  It's not too horribly heavy, but it's awkward.  I filled it with gas before I did so I didn't run out.  I went over to my friend's house.  The one that has been sick.  I mowed his lawn for him.  I know he still isn't feeling well, so I wanted to help him out.  I did his entire lawn.  I then came home and did my front lawn and the driveway around where my car usually sits.  I parked it elsewhere and moved it back afterwards.  I came in and cooled down and then did my workouts. It was ab day so that was fun.  Yikes! LOL!  I got those done and then relaxed a bit before fixing some lunch.  Lunch was delicious.  

I went out and spent some time on my front porch.  It was feeling nice outside today.  A friend called later and asked if I wanted to ride with her to have some keys made.  I did.  She just got a jeep and she drove that.  I did NOT like it. So uncomfortable.  Ugh!  I got a serious headache from the bumpiness and the smell from the exhaust.  BLEAH!  I was happy to get home!

Now, I'm going to finish this and then do my French lesson at Duolingo and then probably play Scrabble on my iPod touch.  I love word games! 


Friday

So, it's Friday and that means it's stretch day on the workout calendar.  That was a nice break.  I had planned to walk today, but that didn't work out.  The weather was perfect for it too.  My friend was afraid we'd get storms.  We didn't.  I decided to use the opportunity to mow my front lawn.  I got that done and then came in to try to breath!  The stuff it kicked up while mowing was horrible.  Stupid pollen and stupid airborne crap this time of year! 

I am glad to get that done.  I'll do the backyard later.  It isn't so bad.  The front is the important part, because that is what people see!  I probably wouldn't have had to mow again already, but we got a few days of rain.  It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Sunday, so if it does, that will give me an excuse not to mow. :P


It's that time again....

What time you ask? Mowing time.  PHOOEY!  I had to mow for the first time this year.  I got most of my yard and I have more to finish tomorrow.  I hate mowing. It's so annoying to have to do it so early in the year.  I went and got some gas in my can to put in my mower.  That took longer than it should because the pump didn't want to work. THEN, the pump wouldn't give me my receipt so I had to go in to get it. I finally got back home and got my mower out.  It didn't want to start at first.  It finally starts and it cuts off three times before I got it going for good.  I swear, getting ready to mow is usually worse than the actual mowing. lol  I HATE when it won't start. I get worn out pulling the damn cord!

I went to the post office today to mail off the pen pal letters that I wrote yesterday. I checked my box and I had 12 letters.  Yes, TWELVE!!!  I've never gotten that many at once. That was pretty insane.  Most are my regular pals, but there are a few new ones!  I'll probably break them up into two days for writing.  Unless I decided to type them all, then I could probably do them all in one sitting.  My hand gets cramped up when I do 5 or 6 letters.  I can't imagine what it will feel like with handwriting 12!  Oh well, I'll get through.  I still can't get over the fact that I got 12 letters! Wowee!

Okay, I'm going to close for now.  I haven't slept well lately, so I'm going to try to settle down and relax so that I'll be able to fall asleep tonight and stay that way until my Fitbit alarm goes off tomorrow morning!
