Our Last Fling

October 17th... and today's forecast is a high of 70 degrees...

I have neglected the yard for too long... Mr. Deere is probably wondering where my warm cozy bottom side has been these last few weeks.. Funny, I don't remember the last time I mowed! Horrible, isn't it?

The grass is getting shaggy.. but hasn't grown much with our lows in the 20's and thirties, and highs peaking at 60...

So, today, I must go out and have one last fling - a 4 hour one no doubt (lucky gal, aren't I?) with my summer dude - Mr. Deere. Then he will get stored away for his long winter's nap.

Gosh.. I sure hope he starts! Poor guy...

Wish us luck, won't you?

I hope you had a successful mowing experience and enjoyed your warm day. :) We have seen a change in our weather 50's this week. My DH was mowing are yard on Thursday for our last trim too. :)

Want to bring Mr Deere here for a date? My yard needs help too....praying for rain so I have an excuse to continue delaying...

Lucky you! We have snow covering our lawn...pout. I was not ready to give up the lawn, and the horses were still enjoying a bit of grazing too! I hate snow at first, but always get used to it and end up loving it.
