A Productive Saturday Morning

This is what the hem of my jeans looked like after mowing our grass for the first time in 2010.
And here are the old grass mowing sneakers. I love to see them by the front door. That means it's hot outside. That means the grass is growing. I love this time of year.

Whew - and what a workout! We have lots of weeds & Queen Anne's Lace in our yard. When it starts to get high, I really gotta work to get that mower to push. I found some muscles that haven't been used since last mowing season.
I love the smell of freshly cut grass. What's your favorite spring-y outside job or fragrance?

I'll get to mow my lawn for the first time this week. Trying to decide if I want to start in on painting tonight or the yard work. I'm voting for yard work since I've been stuck on the inside jobs far too long. Not sure if I'll actually mow tonight or not. Lots of trimming and raking to do first. I'll have some good MP3 time. :)

How did the mowing go? Did you give it a shot yet?
I say abandon the inside jobs while it is still super nice & not hot outside. And also before your grass gets so tall that it kills the mower :-)
