My Celebration for this week!

Today we're celebrating we got our grass cut!  We called someone to cut it, but it took him over a week to get here so our grass looked like a hay field. It was so long that some of the grass got stuck in the door to our car! Yikes. We should have considered getting a goat to help with mowing, but they eat everything. They're not very discriminating!
We had an old riding mower, named Mow (we wanted him to remember what to do) but Mow had an untimely demise when his steering column broke, so now we've hired someone (other than a goat) to manicure our grass!

  1. Hahaha you are too funny, Deanie!
    A goat :D
    We have someone cutting our grass as well, for the first couple of years after buying our house my husband swore up and down he would do it. And he did.... once every month. And once every month I had to hear about his aches for a whole week lol I'm glad we have someone and that you have someone and that our grasses are getting the proper care ;)

  2. Yes, I think we were about a half step away from a goat! We even saw a bunny hopping around in it. We were thinking that the bunny would tell all his friends to hop on over to our house because they could play hide and seek in our grass! When my husband was cutting the grass, he'd stick his head out the door and say, "Dammit the grass is growing again!" Thanks for stopping by and making me smile. D

  3. I love this post! Having the lawn mowed is a great thing to celebrate and your right about goats. They eat everything. Simply Sarah

  4. Thank you so much, Sarah. Special thanks for following me and for all you're doing for our country and for your children! Our lawn is so happy now. Even the lawn maintenance person said he couldn't cut it too short because his mower would stall out!
    Have a great weekend.

  5. We have someone cut our grass, too. I got tired of nagging at my hubby about it, and I couldn't start the mower by myself. That dumb pull-string thing that you have to yank on super fast--it didn't like me. LOL

    1. Hi Jackie, Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. I don't blame you about the mowers with the pull strings. They're super annoying. Wishing you the best.

  6. Sometimes it really is he little things that make us so happy. A week to show up does seem a bit long, but glad he showed.

    1. Welcome to the blogfest, Rhonda! I'm sure you'll like it. I'm still getting used to how to do things with blogging, but one step at a time and we will prevail.
      It's not entirely the lawn person's fault that it took a while to get here. We did expect him sooner, but part of the problem was the weather. We don't mind as long as it's done.

  7. Awesome thing to celebrate, Deanie! I love that you can find such joy in the little things in life. Good for you :D

  8. Thanks, Randi Lee! I think if we remember to celebrate the little things, we're happier people. When the big things come along, they're even more special. We really were excited to have our grass cut and the lawn looks happy again, too! D

  9. Husband is out mowing ours now as I blog!Amazing how quickly it grows.

  10. You, too, Suzanne! Yes, it is incredible how fast the grass grows. We had quite a bit of rain over the past week so that really encourages it to grow furiously fast. D
    Our dear friend, Margaret, recently moved back to England so we miss her a lot. I'll be thinking of both of you.

  11. Hi Deanie.
    The grass does seem to grow quickly, doesn't it? Especially after heavy rains! We get somebody to cut ours... it's a time-consuming task! And we always seem to be soooo busy with other things.

  12. Hi Michelle,
    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and congratulations on your Liebster Award! It's true the yard work doesn't generally get top priority on our list.

  13. Adventures in lawn grooming! LOL. Great story - great part when the grass got caught in the door! May your mower work out or you're able to get a new mechanical one. :) Writer’s Mark

  14. Thank you so much, Nancy. So glad you stopped by and left your thoughtful comment. We have great confidence that our lawn care person will be fine. We used to have him before we adopted Mow. D
    Have a great weekend and I hope you visit again.

  15. Hurrah what a great post, glad Mow used to know what to do ;) And a goat might be a bit extreme ;)

  16. Hi VikLit, thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. Yes, Mow was very entertaining. Our son said you had to get your sense of adventure up before you woke Mow for his work out! Definitely, the goat was the last resort, but we always try to look at all the possibilities! D Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  17. It's so funny that you posted about lawn maintenance! Our mower's battery needs to be replaced and our yard is beginning to resemble a hay field as well. Don't mention the possibility of a goat to my fiance though, he'd be all over that!

  18. I can sympathize with the hay field image, Brandy! We'll keep the goat remedy a secret from your fiance. He probably wouldn't like the fact that they eat everything else! They're not at all discriminating. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, too. I'll visit your site.
