I was going to mow

I worked my first day and it was quite a day. Children who have problems verbally ten to act out over change. I was not one on one with the little guy, but boy, I am tired. I got stopped by a policeman less than two blocks from work. HE says my brake lights and directionals in back do not work. Here at home they work fine. Not sure on that one. When I got home I could clearly see that I need to mow the lawn. Especially since Labor Day Weekend is a big deal in our community with a parade and everything. I got supper ready and we sat down to eat stroganoff meatballs. And the thunder started. Then the rain. Miss Princess sat under the tree, during the rain, all curled up. She came in briefly but is now outside again, enjoying the rain. Mowing can wait, I guess.

I need to as well, but the grass needs to dry out, I am going to keep checking outside every hour.

I mowed some yesterday. The long wet grass sure clogs up the mower.

@Jessicalynnt I would like to get my back yard mowed so that I can enjoy a more private space. I am looking forward to cooler weather. . . I hope.

Too bad you didn't mow before the rain came. Nice to have the rain on a newly mowed lawn. Sounds like a nice evening any way.

We just finished the wettest August on record. It has rained part of every day for about a week.

@celticeagle Sounds like you need just a little at a time, but often.

That was the story of the spring and first part of the summer here. It makes you get so behind on the mowing.

@GardenGerty yes. On occasion our neighbor will mow it and we pay a kid that lives in our trailer park to mow it too.He uses the money to help his dad. So we are helping them out as well.

No mowing going on here, of course, and after Steve went around telling everyone that he was going to get the yard completely done this week of his vacation. Sure wish he would get started on this day that it's not raining.

I know how that is. I did mow yesterday, in front, and so did Bob. That is roughly 1/3 of the yard.

The car may have some intermittent issues. The car resembles a "hot car" a bit, and he could have been checking it out. It just does not seem to fit with this small town though. I drive ten miles to work, and this was almost within site of the school. I would like to get my grass mowed before labor day, as they use the field across the street to stage the parade.

At least the grass won't go away. When you're able to mow it will still be there waiting.

Yep, and it just provides a wonderful place for bugs to be. We have a holiday coming up and I would like it to look nice.

It was funny to me, though, that the cat did not want in. She did not really want to be wet, but she just enjoyed being there. I wonder what she could see?

If we are not in a drought, it seems we always need to mow. Thanks on the good wishes. Wow! it is exhausting for an old lady like me.

That rain conspired to keep you from mowing. Good for the rain!

I really needed an easier type of day when I got home. It is a high energy job which should be good for me. Also my mind will not be so much mush.
