Lawn Boy

Some of you may or may not know this, but for three summers in college I worked for the Warren County Conservation Board mowing the parks of Warren county and I loved it. Everyday I was outside on a mower. Anyway, Heather's grandma has a huge yard and she has a John Deere lawn tractor she uses to mow. A few weeks ago, Heather wanted to learn how to make Grandma's creamed corn to freeze for the winter. So we headed to Monroe, Heather and Grandma worked on the corn and I got to mow the yard!
Grandma was pretty excited when she learned that I have experience with lawn tractors...and I was pretty excited to breathe in the smell of fresh cut grass mixed with the aroma of diesel fuel!
Enjoying a beautiful summer evening on a John Deere.
All smiles!
I just love mowing. For me, it is a good 3 to 4 hours to be alone with my thoughts, to pray and to listen. Sometimes it makes me wonder if I should have been a cowboy?

This is awesome! I love to mow, too, and it was my job in high school (mowed a bunch of yards and two airport properties). Having taken a mowing hiatus during pregnancy, I've been excited to be back in the saddle the last couple weeks. :)
