Yard Work

Even if we don't live in the house, we still have to take care of the yard. In fact, a zero-turn lawn mower was our first purchase. Adam cut down some dead tree branches and did some "pruning" which basically consisted of trimming down anything too tall or too wide. Adam thinks we need a professional arborist's opinion, but this will do for now.

It was my job to zip around on the mower, which reminded me of 4-wheeling and I loved it. I was pretty proud of myself that I did it in less than an hour. I just plugged in the Ipod and listened to Regina Spektor sing about buying a silver trailer and having a baby boy. :) Still haven't met our neighbors yet, but I got a nice hearty wave from our neighbor mowing his lawn too. I love the country.


  1. My husband and I just moved to concord about 3 weeks ago, and I was excited to find your blog. I often saw your house on the MLS, but didn't have the courage to take on such a big project. I can't wait to see all you do to the house.

  2. I LOVE the last picture. I just called the kids over to the computer to show them. Why? Because I am wearing the exact same shirt as I type this!
    You have such good taste! :)

  3. holy moly! a zero turn! i'd be happy for a ride on mower... but with that huge of a yward you'd need a zero turn... too cool!

  4. Nat,

    Congratulations; I think you are officially a country girl after the "yard work" experience. I got a kick out of the last picture. Hilarious.
