Rain, Rain Go Away....

Well ~ we are back from our week-end which was a bit of a bust. One of our main objectives was to open the cottage, clean, mow and then relax. When we finally got there on Friday - long story as I live with a "Poky Man"... anyhoo ~ I started inside and hubby went out to the shed to get the lawn mower out. Now this is the 1st time we have been there this year, so you can imagine how the lawn looks:



Mind you ~ this was taken through the screen during one of the downpours we had! So the lawnmower comes out of the shed and he goes to gas it up and there is no blade ~ NO BLADE ~ where IS the blade?? Oh - I took it off in the fall and took it home to sharpen it. AHHHH Not a problem ~ tomorrow we will go to Sackville, next closest town and buy a new blade and we will mow when we get home....

So off we go on Saturday ~ find a blade, buy a blade, come back with it and it is too big! Needless to say ~ the lawn still looks like the picture above although it is beat down a bit which will make it harder to mow when that time comes. We may need a baler too..... Good news is that I did relax ~ went for some walks and drives checking out my new camera ~ pictures to come soon. Oh ~ and look what the boys did for me on Saturday night:



Yes ~ they did the dishes and I sat back and relaxed.
