Today was a little non-eventful. We began with mowing, hoping to get it all done, but the tractor mower broke. The tall wet grass just did it in, I think. We could not even use the push mower as we were out of gas.
The grass is beginning to look like a green monster, stealthily creeping up to attack us in our sleep.
I don't particularly care for okra, but aren't the blossoms pretty?
We went to pick produce and that's when the reality of not going down myself hit. Michael works hard, but he doesn't see all that needs to be done. He picks and he comes up. I saw how bad it really it down there when I was mowing. YIKES! We are in for it.
We can't even GET to half of what is growing down there, and the garden is looking pekid. Might need more fertilizer. But.... if we fertilize it.... it will grow more.... such a dilemma! We'll have to consider that for a while!
I spent much time on the internet trying to find a mower solution, but didn't get too far. Everyone I called was not home. Then it was time to clean the dental office.
An old friend stopped by while we were there and we talked for a while. It was good to catch up. I'd not seen her in years. We'd just gone in two different directions.
The we met friends and hung out and played music til 11 tonight. Michael's first adult-like self-written song was put to full band orchestration and it sounded great.
I came home and found some replies to mower questions. A friend is stopping by in the morning, so I hope to have some good news then.
In the mean time, thought I'd share some pics of a get together we had here after church a couple of weeks back. It was great to have folks out and eat and play games and hang out under the shade trees.
It was a perfect 78 degrees with a light breeze.
We did tug of war, badminton, croquet, a huge volleyball game, etc. I played, so I didn't get a lot of pics.
Lots of fun! We should do this every week.
