Ok so today we decided it was about time to tackle the large project of mowing our front, side, and back lawns. One problem... we didn't own a lawnmower. So, a friend of Mark's family kindly donated a push mower towards our cause. And for those of you who don't know what that is, it has no motor, you literally push this big metal spiky thing and it sort of cuts your lawn. Well, Mark decided to give it a go...
So far so good, although it was quite an effort to haul that thing across the lawn... and then, apparently Mark didn't know his own strength, and he managed to snap the handle off after about 30 seconds...
Luckily for us, our neighbors were outside and took pity on us, and let Mark use their gas-powered lawn mower. That thing is one powerful machine! Our lawn is now looking trimmed and beautiful, I must say. And I had absolutely no part in it other than taking some pictures. :)
