I mowed with my new green mower. Yea me!
Anyway, prior to mowing I had to open the new 100-foot V-E-R-Y pricey extension (has lots more copper and copper is more expensive, you know) cord. My new extension cord is yellow – goes nicely with the green mower.
Heavens above! I had to have all sorts of things like scissors, just to get the silly thing out of its box and unbound. It’s heavy. Very heavy. A very heavy extension cord that I must drag along with me. Heavy. And, I forgot to put the extension cord dingus on the mower handle. Oh well.
I got day one of the mowing done without issue. I generally mow over three days. I hate to mow and there is no need in being hot, sweaty, and annoyed by doing it all at once.
Afterward I planned to pull weeds, thin seedings, pull weeds, and generally do yard clean up (you know, pull weeds). Now,
I have several unusual yard art items mixed in with all the plants. One such is one of a set of andirons shaped like dragons. Michael had bought them, heaven only know where, several years ago. I’ve used them outside. Works for me.
One dragon was being used as a demarcation line in front of some sunflower seedlings so they wouldn’t get mowed down by accident. The dragon had fallen over (caught on the new yellow 100-foot heavy extension cord). So, first I loosened the dirt a little for the feet and then, grabbing the dragon by head and wing, shoved it down with all my strength. SNAP! The andiron broke and I fell forward hitting my head on the edge of a piece of marble.
Ow, ow, ow! Owie, owie, ouch. Went straight to the ground. And, boooo-hoooo’d for a little bit. Fortunately, I had on a denim hat so I didn’t have blood running everywhere. However, it did raise a huge lump that looked like someone had sandpapered my skin and HURT LIKE THE VERY DEVIL!
Then, I went inside.
Now, I get “poor babies” from everyone.
