Mowing the Lawn


     It's that time of year again.  The time of year when it rains like crazy.  Plants, trees, and the grass all come out of their hibernation turning green and growing.  The grass has grown lots in the past few weeks, due to all the rain, and it was finally time to start mowing again.
     We have a pretty good sized lawn, and mowing it, to most people, would probably seem like a chore.  I don't know what it is, but I love it!  It takes a little over an hour to completely mow the front and back yard, and I enjoy every bit of it, usually.  Back when we lived in San Antonio, I was pregnant with Ashley and I would still mow the lawn.  People driving by would stop and ask why I didn't pay to have someone do it for me.  I didn't want to pay to have someone do it.  I wanted to do it.

     Something about mowing the lawn is so relaxing to me.  We have a self propelled mower, so it's not like I have to push it the whole time.  Now with two kids, I love it because it's an hour I get to myself.  I don't have to listen to anybody, because even if they tried I couldn't hear them.  I get to enjoy being in the warm weather, with the sun beating down on me.  I get lost in thought, and either plan my days, or just daydream.

     It is an hour of walking, so technically it working out.  The most relaxing work out I could ever have!  Don't ask me to do the edging, though.  That to me is just tedious!  I know I'm not the only one who loves to mow the lawn.  Do you?  Is there an activity or chore that you love, that most don't?  Comment and let us know!
