The initial homeowner glow is beginning to fade a little. There is a big rain storm coming so I wanted to mow my lawn before it got out of control. I start up my dandy new lawnmower last night and mowed for about 2 minutes when it died. Out of gas! Arrgh. By then I wasn't in the mood to deal with it. This morning I went out and bought my very own gas can. Partially filled it (because I don't really want to store much gas in the garage in case......boom). Then I proceeded to spill gas all over the mower and garage floor before I finally hit the gas tank. (Yes, there was a little cussing). But I finished the lawn.
But I mean really, what man can resist a woman with her very own gas can........Once word gets out they'll be banging down the door! Lol
Next non-glamorous chore was disgusting. When I moved in there was a stinky, rotting old compost bag in the bottom of my compost bin. This house was vacated in February so you can imagine what a treat that was to find. Grossssssss. My hope that on last weeks collection it might fall out on its one when the truck tipped the bin did not happen.
So this afternoon with a scarf over my face, I dragged it into the garage, tipped it over and extricated the disgusting slimy bag with the help on those shovels in the background. God, I can still smell it :(
Tomorrow morning is recycling pick-up. I'm maxed out on the bags I'm allowed to put out.
