It's a Hack Job

And thus the conclusion of my major springtime goal. Not only does the lawnmower run, but its flat tire is fixed and back in place.

It started to rain this afternoon, but after I got the wheel back on I managed to get most of the remaining lawn hacked off for the first go round of the year.

mowed lawn

I do call it hacked, not mowed. As you can see it's totally ugly with huge clumps of grass, weeds, and chopped baby autumn olive trees now scattered around. The debris is so thick I think I'll need to rake it off. But it's really raining now, so that job will wait.

Sorry, another day with no pretty pictures, but my quality for the day was all about accomplishments.

job well done. I hope you don't have to rake all that by hand. Do you have a rake to put on the back of your mower?

Some days, accomplishment is the best that one can do. That's okay.
