Lawn

After nearly falling sleep vegging on the couch at 7:30, I realised that I needed to go and do something.
So, I popped over to Canadian Tire and bought a push mower.
Yes, the totally manual kind.
It’s the good way to do things right?
Quiet(relatively).
Environmentally Friendly.
Doesn’t cut worth a damn, but that’s alright. Right?
Well, after going over the lawn 5 times, there are still some resilient weeds and bits of grass. That shouldn’t happen.
Even the cheapest electric mower would have gone through those.

CT has a 30 day return policy, so I’m keeping the receipt just in case.
I’ve been told they’re good if you can get up a decent head of steam, but the yard isn’t that big…

And I think I’m going to rip up the “flower” garden and just put grass there for now. It’s more of a weed garden, and not the good kind of weed either 😛

Week is still sucking. Still no net access at home. Still stupid customers to deal with.
Even left my coffee in the car.

    I do believe I mentioned something along those lines…

    I went over the resilient weeds with a weed whacker. Appropriately named. You’ll probably need one of those anyway.

    Don’t worry, after the first time, you should have more luck with the push mower if you keep to a regular, weekly schedule. (Sadly, I can’t seem to keep to a regular schedule for anything, but YMMV).

    Yes, yes you did.
    But I decided to throw caution to the wind. 😛
    I do need a weed whacker, the stuff close to the house is out of reach of the mower.
    Maybe tonight…maybe not ~_~

    The thing is.. you need to either dig the weeds out – painful, I must have pulled two bags worth from my place, or spray ’em (preferably with a chemical designed to kill them).

    My mower – probably the same one as you have did a decent job, some of those “seeding” grass things are still standing though.

    Maybe I should send the dog out to piss on ’em….

    PS. I hate the grey colour when editing this box. I have no idea where my cursor is. It makes me angry… You don’t want to see me angry….

    Yea, I’m going to work on this colour thing, it kinda sucks.

    And you bought the CT cheapy mower too?
    SUCKER!

    And I can’t help but think that dog piss will just make them stronger 🙂

    And next week I’ll snag some of that weed killer, not to mention a whacker of weeds.

    BTW – The pic of the squirrel is priceless – I keep expecting to find something like that in my poopcorn from AMC.
