The Sun is JUST Peeping

over the trees across the road and my wife is out for a run - on a Saturday morning. I think she needs some counseling, don't you? :)

Yes, she needs serious counseling... I mean, obviously she does. I speak this as a man who is on his way out the door to buy a Lawn Mower and Grass Seed at 7:42 AM while my wife is making cinnamon rolls.

Let me again put that in perspective: I can stay here and revel in the smell of freshly baked homemade cinnamon rolls and icing, or I can get in my car, take entirely too much money out of the bank, and go buy work for myself to do today.

:Sigh: The things we do for love, home ownership, and to deserve the cinnamon roll in the first place ;)

Who needs counsel -- the one up running at such an hour, the one up blogging at such an hour, the one up buying lawn stuff at such an hour, or the one up blogging about who of them needs counsel?

McDuck's still has Cinni-Minis I think, but it ain't the same as homemade

Father,

Enjoy the yardwork! I realized last year that what I didn't enjoy about yardwork is the noise of the mower. Now I use my reel mower and enjoy it a great deal.

Terry,

The blogging was only because the accident woke me up at 4 and once I'm awake, I'm awake. :)

We just bought our first house, so this is something of a new experience for me. I grew up in a mobile home park... (cough!), I mean, a manufactured housing community, which means I had a strip of grass on either side of the yard that was narrower than the mower deck... scissors, anyone?

Fortunately, the grass seed and mower are in the garage... but genuinely enjoying the cinnamon rolls required a second trip down to the local convinent store to get gas (for the mower, not the rolls) and milk (for the rolls, not the mower).

I now sit happy and content (for a few minutes) with a glass of milk and a tasty "Clone of a Cinnabon" as I ramble on your blog.

Ah, life is gooooood!

PS- I know I need counseling... serious counseling!

A 22" Sears Craftsman mulching blade mower is God's revelation unto lawn mowing.

Anybody up at 0400 ought to be able the hack the whole Office, prime, tierce and the works, to-day.

Flying Judas at chapter, here I was thinking you could have an afternoon that was truly an after-none.

Father Robert Lyons said...

PastElder,

That is exactly what I bought (albeit used)! 6.5 horsepower of mulching madness! When the Missus gets back from her Supper (Brunch) Club, I'm gonna fire the puppy up (because if I fire the mower up now, I'll get the real puppy fired up and destroying things in the house - she has not yet experienced the power of a Craftsman mower)!

Oh yeah! Had a 20" before that, still have it actually, but moved up to the 22" a few years ago. That extra 2" makes a big difference. Now the question is, mow in alternating patterns. That's how everybody mowed before the Fall.

My male Shar Pei has fits when I run the vacuum cleaner, attacks it from every angle. I have to send him outside temporarily to get the job done.

Now, did someone mention cinnamon rolls? Yum!!

Anybody up at 0400 ought to be able the hack the whole Office, prime, tierce and the works, to-day.That will require at LEAST three cinnamon rolls!
