Today, we visited a lush, green prairie. The tall grasses swayed in the wind and buzzed with busy insects.
Actually, it was just our back yard, which hasn't been mowed once this year.
You see, our mower has been broken. It needed a new belt and an oil change.
This is easy work for JP, but he's been working 16+ hour days -- every day -- for the last month. He finally had some time to work on it this past weekend, but just as he was finishing, he threw out his back and had to stop.
So until he can finish it up and we can mow, we will continue to live in our little house on the prairie. Don't judge.
