Lala is mowing the lawn.
This is remarkable, because 1: we have a LAWN! and 2: we don’t own a lawnmower. We have a pushmower, but the rain fell a lot while we were gone, and the grass grew too fast, and it was just too high for the pushmower to deal with.
So Lala did this with gardening scissors, on one side.
Really, she did. Isn’t that amazing? But while I was inside recovering from a grass-allergy attack, I heard a neighbor talking to her. We don’t know many of our neighbors, so it was nice that he stopped. And he offered her the use of his lawnmower. I heard her pause and almost refuse, and then she thought better of it and said yes. She’s out there putt-putt-ing now, and that side that she did earlier with scissors does look more professional now, but I’m still highly impressed with her earlier effort. It’s a nice day.
