101914_1729_Somedays1.jpgIt’s Mōnandæg, or Monday as we have anglicized it. The second day of the week in my tradition. But my tradition also says the Moon was created on the fourth day, so it is a little odd that the Norse would think it was on the second day. Maybe they didn’t have a Book of Beginnings.  So goes an old man’s musings as he sits down to herald a new day.

So, on this day when God invented atmosphere, clouds, rain and oceans, I gaze out my window at the freshly mowed verges as the puck plays music for da budgie and write a morning coffee post.  I always feel like I’ve done something important when everything is mowed billiard table flat.  Funny that I would retire to the wild lands, and then try to civilize it …

Snookums new riding mower is on the way and will arrive tomorrow, one riding mower is repaired, and one has parts on the way. Eighty bucks worth of small parts.  But without good working machines, we’d live in high brush, cockle-burs, thorns and rattlesnakes.  So, we mow.  And mow.  Then mow some more.

But early mornings are mine to savor.  Coffee, bare feet, sometimes a cookie, music, and an electronic window into your world.  I see that you aren’t dressed for the day either.

Good morning!

    My lawn was mowed when I got home last night. That was nice.

      While I was ailing last month, one neighbor sent her kid over on his mower and mowed my acreage, and another came and weed-whacked the edges. I felt so decadent.

    Good morning Rusty, glad to share a cup of coffee and cookie with you. I don’t have much of a lawn to mow, thank goodness. Besides when it needs mowing, I get my son to do it, lol.

    Did Snookums get the 60″Bad Boy zero turn like my other half did?
    For your sake I sincerely hope not…

      LOL! No, I got her a petite 30″ riding mower with a steering wheel for the dog run and back yard. We have two big honkin’ mowers for the rest of the yard, but they are just 48″ mowers. Hardly worth having …

        I can see myself getting a little baby tractor in the next 5-10 years. Push mowing is getting old…and so am I!

        Yeah, snooks too … she is blessed with both kinds of arthritis. She helps on the big mowers when both are working, but it is a bit much for her to steer them around the planters and such …

    You bought your wife a riding mower? Reminds me of the days when husbands bought their wives new vacuum cleaners for Christmas.(LOL)

    Good Morning! I see I have some catching up to do and I am ashamed to even be here since I haven’t written a post in awhile. So much for getting more active with my blog, but my life offers nothing to write about worth reading at the moment so that is that. Have a nice day Sir !
