Today was "four days" ! Four days of me cutting lawn in sections with many many breaks in between. It might have been done yesterday morning, but no it had to rain all day yesterday. Do you know what that rain did? it started the front lawn that I had cut last Thursday to growing again ..... OH MAN !!! Please do NOT grow now until "Big Bad John" is fixed !!!!
Other then cutting lawn most of the day, I did manage to do one load of laundry to hang out on the clothes line, make our bed, do up some dishes and have our "Checkerboard Aussies" all rotated numerous times throughout the day.
With the John Deere all broken down, what on earth would I use to cut all this lawn that took me "four" days to do, you would ask?
After one of my many breaks, I even managed to do a little bit of weeding in a couple of the Flower beds. Where on earth did I ever find the time to "squeeze" that in, never mind the energy !
Oh yes, I also managed to draft a letter for the "Crabby Cabbie", return a phone call to my girlfriend, and do myself some damage while ...
Rob worked today, otherwise usually his day off. He was home in time to fire up the BBQ, doing an amazing job on grilling the Prime Rib Steak for our dinner, while I whipped up his favourite salad.

Once supper was over with, I took Bandit outside to clip his nails. Rob then came out after to help me clip Buddy's nails, then we gave him a really good brushing out ... such handsome boys we have.
I am "exhausted", never mind the hurting. Dishes still waiting to be done in the kitchen sink, while longing for a nice hot soak in the tub, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
