Lawn is mowed!
I was rather stiff this morning after spending most of yesterday walking around the slopes of a mountain. (Photos to follow later.) However, rain was forecast at lunchtime, so there was just a small window of opportunity to mow the front grass which was definitely getting shaggy. It took 1.5 hours of pretty hard work and I was dripping in sweat by the time I finished, but it is all neat and tidy now and I even strimmed the edges, which I had ignored the last two times I mowed. Since then I've showered and had lunch and I'm allowing myself a little time to catch up online before working out what to do next.

Current Mood: accomplished accomplished

That's a real accomplishment! Mowing is such hard work.

Our grass isn't exactly smooth either. Actually, I say "grass" but it's actually a mixture of grass, moss and weeds. :)

Oh wow, it sounds like you got a workout! I might mow our back lawn mid week if hubby does not feel up to it. We have three areas that need mowing, but the back - every darn week!
