Tractor Therapy

I have been waiting for decent weather so I could mow our little acre. I call it tractor therapy. Today was supposed to be in the low 50’s and little wind. Just as I was about to go out, the wind started up. It was howling like a ghost on Scooby Doo. When I could stand it no longer, I went out.

The lawn could not have waited any longer and I needed to get OUT! Since the pandemic began I only go out for groceries to keep our risk as low as possible due to our ages and hubby’s MS.

It felt so good to be outside for that amount of time. It took less than two hours to finish. While I had only meant to do the back yard, I finished the front yard as well. Just being on that tractor helps me feel normal. When I took over the mowing from hubby two seasons ago, I was afraid to mow the front yard. I always felt I would tip over. It no longer bothers me. It’s fun, relaxing and very satisfying. I can talk to God, sing or just mindlessly mow. I highly recommend it!

It’s a good thing I took a hot shower. My muscles are reminding me that I have not used them in that way for a very long time. Shoulders are sore from turning the steering wheel.

It’s been a better week overall. We even received yellow roses from my Mom. She said she can’t be up here to help me and she loves yellow roses. It’s how Mom says she’s thinking of us, praying for us and loving us. She’s the best.
