It’s crazy how fast time goes in the Spring. With yard work and running, I haven’t had as much time as I want to update the blog. A couple of quick notes…. Everyone should listen to the audio books of Harry Potter. The reader should get a Nobel prize. He is absolutely incredible. I’m on the last book and could not be more impressed.
I’m still without Cable TV and loving it. A quick recommendations is Derek on Netflix. A very solid show. I’m looking forward to the HBO shows coming on Amazon Prime streaming later in the month.
Anyway, here are a few pictures of the back yard.
Since I still don’t know what the purpose of this blog is, I thought I would dedicate a post to some of the various lawn patterns that I have mowed in the back yard.
First off, I really like mowing the lawn. It serves a several purposes for me. First off all, it serves as a source of pride. My grandfather always took a lot of pride in his lawn and that has carried down to me. Given the fact that I have two large dogs, I’ll probably never have the best lawn on the block, but I can always have it mowed and kept up. Secondly, it is strangely cathartic to mow the lawn. I usually put on some music or a podcast and enjoy the hour.
To my friends, it is fairly well known that I have no artistic ability. I can’t draw, can’t sing and I definitely can’t dance. Perhaps mowing patterns in the lawn is as artistic as I can get. With that said, I present various lawn mowing patterns.
Stripes (if only I could mow in straight lines)
