Is it possible I'm getting my life together?

Surely not. But I actually mowed my front lawn this weekend (in between rain squalls), which has got to be the earliest in the season that I've ever done this. And it also marks another first: being able to mow my lawn without major repairs to my fleet of lawn-care equipment from a winter of neglect.

Looking out over the mowed lawn this morning was inspiring. Part of me, though, was dismayed by the morning frost on the grass. I guess I gotta get used to the fact that lawn care begins in the cold months, and if I wait for the weather to be comfortable, the grass will truly have won.

Hm. The Backyard Cam got jostled over the weekend, so you can't really see the fruits of my labor.
