It's been a late spring. Last year I picked lilacs for mothers day and this year they aren't yet in bloom. Of course for lazy folk like me late spring means I can put off mowing longer too. I like that. Of course I'm lazy year round so I stop mowing in the fall (er, or like late summer) way before everyone else in the neighborhood. Which means as soon as the snow melts my yard is already in dire need of a mow. Well I finally broke down and mowed today. Here is what it looked like before. Notice Kirk is drowning in the grass and weeds that make up my yard.
I am sometimes ashamed that I have the stupidest lawn on my block. Even the crazy crack head across the street is better at yardwork than me. Of course he gets all strung out and can be found planting things at 3 in the morning. Usually with no shirt on. Oh I can tell stories about that guy. And later I will.
Anyway Kirk loves "helping" me mow. Heh, just wait a few years and he'll hate it I'm sure. When he has to do it all the time.
After mowing we drew on the sidewalk for awhile. This is one of Kirk's new favorite things. Of course I have to do all the drawing. He wanted me to draw him and me and our house "with lightsabers". It was his request. If you are nerdy enough you will notice my lightsaber is red. Ha! Go Zahn! Anyway it was a good evening all in all.
