Wordless Wednesday (Summer's Coming)

I'm the designated lawn mower this summer, and my son's gone off to college.
 BOY, I'm going to miss him this year!! ;) :)

  1. Mayhap a riding mower would be a good investment?

  2. So we'll be working together :)
    The hubs leave each time and so for a month I have to mow the lawn. I am still beseeching for a new lawnmower or he's going to come back to a jungle one of these days.

    Maybe your son will visit in summer :)

  3. I kinda enjoyed mowing occasionally, but not every week!

    1. They grow up and move out on you, Lisa. Leaving you with all of the chores to bear. ;)

  5. LOL.... I used to mow, but lately my Hubs does it. We will be mowing very soon as the grass is growing fast since we have had a couple of nice days.

    1. Ah, he was a baby then...that was a few years ago. He looks so much like a man these days. He's still a cutie pie though. :)

    1. I only have to shovel the driveway, so that's not so bad. :)

  8. You've got a huge yard too. Lucky devil. I'd hire someone to do the mowing. I sure wouldn't do it.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  10. There are worse hobbies. Fresh air and vitamin D in abundance.

    1. I do always feel happy when I've been working outside...like I've actually accomplished something.

      But I'm trying to grumble here, Chuck, and you're making me think of it fondly. :)

  11. It's actually great exercise. I enjoy it.

    1. So many positive do-gooders around this joint. :)

      KIDDING!

      I like it sometimes. I like it better when I'm taking pictures of someone in my family doing it. hehehe

  13. I'm the designated lawn mover here too, for the first year. Will be interesting to see how I do! Lol

  14. The only time in my life when I mowed was when my husband was outside and ran over a yellow jacket nest. He ended up getting stung, which is bad because he is allergic to bee stings. So, after his ordeal passed, I had to go out and finish the lawn. Mowing sucks! So now I go out and make sure there are no holes in the ground that could cause an uprising and send the hubby on his merry mowing way.

    1. It's not nice to rub these things in, Theresa. Just not nice. ;)

  15. I've been in charge of mowing before, but push mowing 2-1/2 acres is WAY too much! LOL! Thankfully I broke that mower and now my husband borrows his parents' tractor to mow :-)

    1. You laughed at breaking your mower, hahahaha. That made me laugh. :)

      Mowers DO break easy though...every year we've got either the pusher or the ride-on in for a repair.

  16. I have a feeling I'll be doing quite a lot of mowing this summer as well since hubby got a full time job and the son will be looking for work as well. Ah well, I enjoy getting outside as long as I have a mower that I don't have to fight with!

    1. I think it's hard to start the push mowers sometimes. Sometimes I have to ask someone else to start it (after 500 attempts), and that I DO dislike.

  17. My husband is usually the one that mows at our house. I've only had to mow our yard 2 or 3 times when my husband was sick, and then of course the summer he was deployed. I don't mind mowing, but my husband is kind of picky on the way it looks and he doesn't think I do it right. Haha. He actually kinda likes mowing, too.

    1. The men in my neighborhood seem to have a competition going on...one starts going and the next chimes right in. But my husband is happy not to participate, lol. He works hard and when he's home he doesn't want to...which I understand.

      Delete
  18. Aw, man, I'd miss him, too. My parents have a yard that's full of pine trees, and they specifically go around pulling up any blades of grass that dare to grow so they don't have to end up mowing, ha ha.

    1. LOL, I need more Pines! The needles hurt your tootsies though, if you're in the yard barefoot. ;)

  22. Wow you have a lovely big garden, my oldest son is away this year, our garden is small though :)

    1. It's flat in the front and back, so I'll be okay mowing there, but the sides have big hills I'm scared to take the rider down or the push mower, up, hahaha. It's going to be an interesting summer. I'll get it figured out soon enough, I'm sure. I think I might even end up liking it. :)

      Delete
  23. What a gorgeous yard! And a handsome helper! ;) I'm actually looking forward to running the tractor around the Back 40 when it dries out some - I make the hubby do the push mowing. ;)

  24. Couldn't you lure him back home once a week with a promise of a homecooked meal and Mom's Laundry Service in exchange for some lawn mowing???

  25. I bet you will. We have a big yard for a city yard. I wish someone else would be able to mow it.

    1. If I were gloriously rich I would hire a dinner chef and a landscaper. ;) But I'm not...so I mow, and I cook. :)

  26. My hubby claims he enjoys mowing the lawn, maybe you just need a different attitude about it - or perhaps a neighborhood kid to do it for you :)

    1. Thanks, Judy. It'll take a little trial-and-error, but I'm sure I'll be fine. People have been mowing forever and a day, right? How bad could it be? :)

  31. My husband loved to mow the lawn so he never allowed the boys to do it. Which makes it nice for me as I never lost my lawn boy.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

  32. It looks nice and green where you are. Here the grass is still brown. My boyfriend can't wait until he can take the lawnmower out. He loves cutting the grass:)

    1. This was actually a couple of years ago. We can't really mow yet. I'm just thinking ahead a bit because I know it's coming, and I'm on yard duty now that my young man has gone out on his own. ;)
