Mowing lawns on Canada Day and an awesome dinner too!

Where are we today ?
Happy Canada Day
         Cooler overcast day but no rain all day, temps to the high 60's f so really not too bad. Personally I would like a bit warmer but we take what we can get.
        A few walkabouts this morning then I decided to mow some grass. The back 1/3 of the lot has not been done for a while so hopped on the mower and trimmed up the last one acre plus in under and hour. This 61 inch deck sure makes quick work of this.

you can't see our coach from the back of the lot but
 is just past that tall tree in the middle.

       Then after lunch went over to the farm to check out Dennis and Sandy's new house. Nice new place they are moving to and was asked if I would like to mow the lawn here.  Yep no problem, so got my hat, shoes and ear plugs, hopped on the "Grasshopper" and went to work.

        Got this done then back to John and Lea's enjoyed a Happy Hour with John's sister Suzie and Randy, Lea'a daughter Cassandra and Aaron with a few snacks.

 Now John and Lea put out on a huge spread of steaks!
Must cost hundreds of dollars, maybe a thousand or more!
So tender and tasty!

  1. Happy Canada Day. Those steaks look yummy! Glad you had a great day with friends.

    1. It was an awesome day always fun making new friends.

  2. You seem to have a lot of fun filled days even though you still have to do a little work now and then.

    1. The lawn mowing is more fun than work.

  3. Glad you had a great day even with all that grass cutting. Sure would like to have one of those tractor mowers!

    Those steaks looked pretty good.

    1. Steaks were awesome.
      One tractor has a 5 foot wide deck the other 4 feet wide both probably too big for your lawn.

  4. You deserve happy hour after all that mowing and the steaks were a big bonus.

  5. Looks like good weather and a wonderful day for celebrating. Hope it stops raining here by Thursday so we can enjoy our special day.

    1. I am thinking that you will have a perfect day like we did.


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
