this unseasonably warm weather has been great! we have been able to turn off our heat a couple months early, we dont have to shovel the snow or scrape off the car in the morning, and i've been able to ditch the coat all together! the unfortunate side effect of all this heat is that the grass has been growing, and that means the most dreaded event of the year: lawn mowing! argh! well, i knew i couldnt avoid it any longer, so i put on my grubby shoes and got to it. it was just as terrible as i remember from mowing last year, but it does feel good to have the lawn looking good!
