THE LITTLE MOWER THAT COULD


Mow all the little grass paths in the garden!


Grow me some masculine biceps...



and make me sweat like a pig!


Burn about 1000 calories??



Okay...


I'm exaggerating a wee bit. Especially after you figure in the Orange Popsicle!



Oh, and check out my new/old bench! Thanks to my fab friend Christen. I'll think of ya every time I lounge in it!!
Happy weekend to all of you!!

Hey, if it's as hot and humid there as it is here, you probably sweat buckets and worked off serious calories! It's good exercise, plus the old mower is cute!

I love that little mower...I would hate to use it on my 2 acres...but it is fantastic!
We had one similar when I was growing up...except it had a motor..which helped a little!
Cute mowing clothes!

Tracey said...

Did you mow all 4 acres or just that little bit around the veg! LOL
Why has your lolly got 2 sticks? We only have one!!!

Yes, just the veg. I have a rider for the rest!!

My lolly is bigger than yours!

Cathy said...

Tracey said...

LOL! You Americans have to have 2 sticks!!!! now, listen, an icepole is without a stick, a lolly as got ONE stick, got it? hahaha.

Ooh, that popsicle looks good! And I'd have to say you deserve it after all your mowing! It is a cute little mower, too! :) By the way, I made a silly mistake...I got confused and thought for sure I'd seen this certain craft on your blog, but it turned out it was on a different blog. (Yep, I'm feeling really, well, dumb!) I need to write down exactly where I see things so I don't get mixed up! Sorry if I confused you when I told you earlier this week that I'd "copied" you...

I hope you have a great weekend! :)

Those old mowers keep on working, don't they? No gasoline, electricity, just muscle power and a little blade sharpening now and then. And of course, the nice bench and a Popsicle help one rest and reflect on a job well done!

It may be a lot of work but at least it isn't blowing grass clippings into your garden!!

Love the old mower and it was a perfect fit for the grass strip around the LOVELY garden. Popsicles are a tasty treat, one stick or two:) Cute old/new chair!Have a blessed day!

Oh I love your new bench. Looks inviting. I always like getting a work out when I'm doing yard work. Hard to believe that is the way yards used to get mowed.

~Great work Jen!
I'm impressed! :)

You look so cute mowing the veggie patch in your pink outfit. I'm sure all that work burned off a lot of calories - but you are so thin you don't need to. I love the bench too! -Jackie
