Lovin' My Yard

Sunday, May 29, 2011

How much am I loving my yard? I've actually been shooing my son away from using the riding lawn mower on it. I am thoroughly enjoying using my push mower. To complete the whole yard, it takes me a little more than three hours each day for two days. Do I hear cardio workout?!?!?!

Today we worked on digging the area for our pool. We have about 1/2 of it completly level. Slowly, but surely we are getting there. Today actually would have been a great day for the pool. It was in the 90's and very sunny! But the joy and satisfaction of doing this together as a family is worth more than words!

Well, after all the yard work I did today, I should sleep to bed I go.

Have a terrific, blessed Memorial Day friends!

    I'm with you girl...I pick the push mower over the riding mower any time. It just does a better job! And yard work is the best kind of work out in my opinion!!! Glad you're finally getting some nice weather so that you and your kids can enjoy your new yard. Can't wait to see the pool...everyone will enjoy it so much more knowing how much work it was!!!

    I forget every year how much work the yard and the outside are.... but I still prefer them ANYDAY to shoveling snow and shivering in the cold!!! Hope you had a marvelous Memorial Day weekend. Mine was short and busy and I had to work today, but when I got home I got to spend some time in the sun. My bones are loving the natural Vitamin D!!!

    emoticon I'm with you, I like the way the yard looks after its been push mowed. It takes me a few days to get it done normally but because of the drought I've only ha to mow twice so far this year.
