Not our mower, but we do have a push mower (self-propelled oh yeah!)
I will let ya’ll in on a little secret.
I like to mow. OK ok I LOVE to mow.
I’ve never really been into yard work but I discovered the zen of mowing a couple of years ago.
I thought I might be the only mama out there who finds the peace and solitude of mowing appealing but chatting at a soccer tourney with another mom I mentioned I’d mowed the yard recently and confessed to my love for it. “I really LOVE to mow. I know that’s crazy,” I confessed. “That’s not normal, right?”
“Oh gosh, NO, I love it, too! I mean peace and quiet and just me and the yard. Are you kidding? No one talking to me or bugging me? Yes! I totally get it. It’s my alone time.”
This woman was my kindred spirit in mow-dom. We’d both discovered the peace and quiet of mowing.
Don’t get me wrong, I will never trade in a spa treatment for yard work, but turn me loose with a mower on a beautiful sunny day and I will whistle while I work and enjoy the hum and repetition of the mower and precious minutes of clearing my mind before I fill it with a hundred mental Post It notes. As soon as the mower stops, one of my kids will need something to eat, something to drink or a ride somewhere. Mowing is my little zen retreat that I share with my mower.
Do you like to mow the yard?
Now you know your mama loves to mow the grass.
But use my riding mover
and have for years.
Guess you take after me 🙂
