Blogger is being a booger and won't let me put my pictures where they are supposed to go!!!!! Hope you can figure it all out! :o)
As you all know we have had a rainy summer. We've had lovely days scattered here and there but for the most part it's been overcast and lots of heavy rain. I was walking out to my flower garden in my flip flops yesterday and the ground was going squish, squish, squish and the water was coming up over my toes. It's been challenging to keep all the mowing done that we do around here but when we do get a good day and things dry out a bit we mow like there was no tomorrow!
I don't mind mowing, in fact I like it. Of course I'm riding a big commercial type mower with a nice comfy seat and a cup holder so it's not like I'm pushing something around (which would be more benenficial for me!). I like being out in the sunshine too and yes I do have a farmers tan. :o) I try to remember to put on sunscreen but don't always which I know is not good.
I like the smell of the newly cut grass, it's so sweet and fragrant. I wear ear plugs and a headset to protect my hearing. Even with that my ears ring for a while after I am finished mowing. This summer I have mowed a lot of mud.........got stuck once and Dad had to pull me out with the tractor. I have been more careful since then. There are still places that have standing water that you can't mow which is unheard of for August.
Now you know it's been a slow news week when I post about mowing the grass.
We did get to the lake this weekend. It was just perfect, warm with a nice breeze off the lake. We rode around the lake a few times in the boat just sightseeing, didn't see any loons this time. There was a small plane that kept landing and taking off in front of our camp. Someone must have been having a lesson. Of course I left my camera home, darn it!
Another small plane went over fairly low and we wondered who it was that would swoop so low right over us. Come to find out it was Cousin K at the wheel! No that must be at the helm, no that's a boat, well anyway you know what I mean. He was with a friend of the family in their small plane and the pilot let him do a little steering so he was pretty excited about that! He told us all about it at church the next morning and he was still on a high! That's pretty heady stuff for a ten year old! Next time I'm going to have them call before they fly over so that I can get some pictures!
Someone sent me these pictures. Sooooooo cute!! They are called Mom's Lap.
We have decided to sell our pony cart. It has been used twice as I am too lazy to change it over from one pony or two. My hubby had it made for our ponies and it is in mint condition. I've got to get some pictures put in the Yankee Peddler and at the tack shops. I hate to sell it but it's just taking up space in the basement and we never use it. I also sold our antique doctor's buggy. Again I hated to sell it but it's too nice to just sit on the lawn for decoration as I wouldn't want it out in the elements but it was taking up so much space in our basement. I bought it from someone who had it in their living room!
Well I'm mad at Blogger! I have never had trouble putting my pictures where I want them. What's up with that????
