Taking a Risk

The weather is beautiful this week.   Lows in the 40s and highs in the low 70s.   We have had a few rare rain showers.  Not enough to even touch the severity of the drought but enough to make the weeds in the yard grow.  

It is really starting to look bad.  

So what would the risky behavior be?   Cutting the grass or rather,  the weeds.   I know it is fall but down here in the south, things are green.   My yard looks like an overgrown weed patch.   Since I have been on orders to rest, the yard has been neglected.  

Dragon approved walking but not yard work.   I am risking a painful behind.   With the belt and floggers now on the table,  I am a bit worried but not enough to stop me.   No one else will get out there and get it done.

Hoping for the best....

  2. Asking didn't work but a little fear did. I got the lawnmower out and started it. One of my kids decided that it is better to cut the grass than to face the wrath of dad. He gives a look that makes all of them squirm. The front yard is almost done. My backside is safe and that kid has earned a huge reward.

    And I thought that I was going to have to do it. Happy me

  3. Congrats on your maneuver happy your kiddo helped out and saved you both!

    Now take care of yourself!
