You have to love neighbors. Need a cup of sugar? They are right there. Your schedule is off and you flip the lights on 10 minutes earlier than normal? They notice. You don't have a chance to mow your lawn for a few weeks? They get irritated, especially if they are partnered and keep their lawn meticulously mowed.
Y'all, they thought we didn't care. The body builder boy of the two came over and asked Hubs if he just didn't want to mow it.
"Uh, no. I have been busy."
Had they been keeping up on their neighborly duties such as watching every move we make any other time (including probably knowing when we use the bathroom), they would have known that Hubs has had long and early days, sometimes starting at 4:30 AM.
I don't live in a housing development. We don't have laws, bylaws and all that. We just live in a city on a postage stamp sized lot and happened to have had longish grass. It's not like the lawn was up to my knees. It wasn't mid-shin either.
So, have you ever had a neighbor complain about lawn length? In our 10 years here, this is the first complaint about the unwritten violation. I suppose that isn't so bad!
Smiles in my day:
- Having a nice chat with Mrs. H- this morning about all of the end of the year things that she needs help with.
- My pants are loose. Me thinks that the walking is helping. :)
- The in-law's bought me supper!
- The lady who was in multiple times today. She was probably in her 60's trying to rock pleather pants. All I could think of was the episode of friends where Ross decided to wear the leather pants and got stuck. The lotion and baby powder? "It appears to be making a paste!" Oh, I still laugh!
Storms are coming our way. I must bid farewell so as to turn the box off. Don't want to cook it.
Have a great day!
