|What are these?|
These are growing across the street from my house. No one knows their name.
I have had promises of yard mowing since July last year. No one ever comes or does a half-a$$ job. One irritable guy said he would come for $100 and clean up the yard, cutting things and weed-eating. He was just too grumpy and irritable on top of being more than I could afford.
There is one weed that looks like a flower. I hate it. Most mowers leave it. Urge to kill overcomes me. Exbf took down all the flowering weeds with a weed eater. So, the place looked less intimidating to guys who mow. I know this guy did not weed eat, something the whole yard needs. He did not pick up one thing, mowed over some plastic and paper that I never saw. He only charged $30 which is a steal. Those of you who have seen my yard will agree this was cheap for the size.
The absolute best part was that he has a bag to catch all the three foot high weeds in the back yard. I saw him mowing a yard nearby and stopped to employ him. His bag was the only reason he is now my mower guy.
When guys say they will rake and don't, any grass or weeds left kills the grass. I know he did not do a bang-up job. But, it is down and for that I am grateful. Exbf can use his weed eater around the edges.
Maybe I can revive the St. Augustine grass! .Oh, it was dark when he left, so there is no picture. And, I haven't seen it yet.
I started with a 7th grader with F average. Last week, he said his average was above failing. Today, he said he has C average. I commented we could shoot for B. He nixed that. We will see. Remember, I charge his mother nothing. I just hate to see a child fail.
He leaves books at home and thinks we will not study because I don't have the material. HA! I just make up problems for the Pythagorean theorem. Today, I asked him what problems gave him trouble. So, we spent an hour with mean, median, and mode. I can find his assignments on the school-issued laptop. We worked on gerund, infinitive, and other terms for English Language arts.
Is getting the yard mowed a continual hassle for you? Does it make you happy when the grass is freshly mowed?
