|Part of our back yard|
Today’s blog post is inspired by the word “whoops”. So why, you ask, am I showing you a picture of our back yard? Well….keep reading my friends….. LOL
It seems there are never-ending projects going on at my house. When the days are longer and the weather is warmer, we venture outside on the weekends to work on said projects. Well, *I* don’t per se, but my hubby does. (I’m not handy when it comes to sawing, hammering, ripping decks down etc…) But I can mow the grass! YES! Yes I can! It helps him out and it is something I can do with out thinking much about it. I try to push mow for the exercise, but it is broken at the moment so I’ve been ride mowing lately.
So yesterday after the grocery run, I go out to mow while hubby was at Home Depot. I got it started and as soon as the blades went down it would shut off. Hmmm (totally clueless here) So unfortunately I had to let it sit till he came home. Guess it just doesn’t like me because he got it going. (He mentioned I had the cut level down too far or something like that) GREAT! Now I can get it mowed and out of the way.
He left it running for me and I hopped on and went on my merry way. After about two swipes I noticed that he was walking over to me. He asked if I knew I didn’t have the blades down. UM NO?! Yea, so there you have it. I was mowing the grass with no blades. Just riding around. LOL! Oh man…well after I sat there and laughed at myself for a minute, I put the blades down and continued on.
I have to say that is the first time I ever did that! No really, it is…honest! So there was my “whoops” from the weekend.
Tell me about a “whoops” that you had…I can’t be the only one out there!
