AHHH....back on the zen machine, as it should be. The yard was OUT OF CONTROL. I mean, I've rarely seen it this long. See below for the results.
This is the view off the end of the porch...it was growing up over the bottom step...
...but not when I was finished mowing.
This is the view down the driveway before (thought my Fiat was going to set the grass on fire it was so high).
...but afterward, it was nice and trim. I set the mower to a low height to get through the clover and weeds and down to the grass so it would open up and start growing.
The day wasn't without a casualty however. I ran over the hose...in several places (it was coiled up). The grass had grown over it and I didn't see it and I forgot about it. Oh well, now I can get a longer one for watering purposes. Everything happens for a reason, right? LOL.
More on dinner tomorrow, and I'll reply to the comments tomorrow evening as well. It's been a long day, I have a bit of a sunburn, my muscles are sore, but my tummy is full, I have had a glass or two of wine...life is good for 50+1 day...
