Have you ever have one of those times you feel really smart. You know for just one of those little things, hey this is the right thing to do right now.
Last weekend was one of those times for me.
For those of you who follow me on Twitter know I post a picture via twitpic a week or so back on what happens to a lawn mower when you run over a stump. I bent the heck out of the blade. Now I could have just fixed that mower, but it was really on its way out, and I really wanted one that had a bag on it.
So last weekened we finally got a new mower. Now its been over two weeks since I got to mow the backyard. So got the mower up and running and started to mow the backyard.
Now we have a lot of trees in our backyard. So I was in the shade for most the afternoon mowing away. When it came time to mow the front yard. I made one pass, and that little part of my brain that sparks those little burst of smartness went off. Stop Mowing Now. Put the mower up and go inside..
Reason. It’s a 103 degrees outside, and the front yard is in full sun.
Well I didn’t realize it was that hot out there till after I put the mower away. We have a thermometer out and our yard and I glanced at it on my way in. 103 degrees.
So I’m stilling in my living room, drinking a nice cold glass of ice tea, when it hit me.
That had to have been the smartest thing I’ve done all week.
I’m sure I would have really hurt myself if I had continued to mow.
So let that be a lesson to everyone. Feel smart, don’t mow your yard when its a 100 degrees outside.
