Preparations for Yet Another
My husband was a collector. We have windows, if you are in need of any window of any shape and size. We have lawn mowers (at least I think). Historically, he had an array of push mowers and ride-ons. Yet the shovels are not yet put away, leaning against the door, while my winter coats still hang on hooks throughout the house, just in case. I just don't know if I have one working lawn mower. Thoughts of tackling this, just overwhelm me. I am out of my territory. Meanwhile the grass grows at a furious rate after months of dormancy.
It has been decades since I have pushed a mower. I am not sure how to start one. It seems that my anxiety about another change of season and my first spring without my handy husband may have been alleviated had I planned ahead a little bit. Yet, I need to give myself a break; after all I am carrying the load of two adults. My schedule opens a bit this weekend. I will walk the property checking for rocks and sticks that may catch in the mower, but not before I find at least one mower in working order and pray for dry weather.
