So, here we are fooling around on our new land. Our good neighbor, Johnnye, came over to help. But Don would really protest if I didn't mention that he gets "best neighbor award" for bringing over cold bottled water and a diet coke on ice for ol' MoMo.
From our housepad, we have a gorgeous view that actually could be even more gorgeous! Todd spent his time trying to cut some low limbs so the canopy is higher!
I spent my time tackling THIS!
See... this was my view for AT LEAST an hour.
And after an hour. There was probably TRIPLE this much more to mow! UGH!
I can see why Todd HAAaaaad to have this new lawnmower which (IF the grass were not so high) can FLY through a yard lickety split! And YES you CAN cross your legs and drive it at the same time!
This is kinda how we envision our trees looking after we trim em up.
Look at my little workhorse! We dragged many a limb into a big pile for burnage!
Even had to cut a tree or two. Basically, if you are a pine, you don't get to live on our land! Only hardwoods around the new house!
And after all this fun, not only did Todd's chain come off his chainsaw,
after tackling allllllll this grass...
the motor on this quite expensive mower also blew up! Note how helpful Johnnye is as Todd slaves over the situation. (Actually, Johnnye also spent about an hour on the mower too! Thanks, Johnnye!)
And that concludes our working the land!
and a week from TODAY...MO turns the big 4-0!
Has anybody heard of some sort of fun thing we could do as a blog community to celebrate?! You know, like a chain letter or progressive dinner type blog game?! Let me know. This DESERVES a celebration!!
