BACK-TO- BASIC'S : SIMPLE LIVING

This is my next commitment to a simpler life style. Again, I didn't say easier or faster...just simpler.

1. Posted Monday.

2. NO GAS POWERED WEED WHIP THIS SUMMER!!!
I was SO frustrated today...I went to get the weed whipper out. First time this year. I had to jump through multitude of hoops to get the little rascal running. Find the twine...twirl it around gadget ---get the right mixture ratio of gas and oil. Prime..several time...pull cord ...prime some more...do the chokey thingy pull cord ... keep repeating until running. I thought, "hmmmmm, there has to be a simpler way to trim around these rocks." It came to me--- I had purchased these handy dandy grass clipper from a yard sale some years ago. They work great. I should have some great looking forearms by summer's end.

3. STAY TUNED

Hey I remember something like that when I was a kid. And we used to thing it was fun to sit along the edge of the lawn and "scissor" it off.

My weed thing is broken right now. I hate to admit it, but it never occurred to me to use shears. I have some I use for the bushes. I will have to get them out and trim the yard with those...great exercise benefit! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. Have a great day!

I like the name of your blog. I found you on Kim's Candor. Using shears are tough. Good luck with the garden. I'm not much of a gardener.

I'm with you, I give up on that stuff!
I have a little hand saw that I use for runaway shoots that I can't cut!

Congrats you won the "Perfect Blocks in minutes" book from my Sew What's Up blog giveaway!

Don't think I have an email address for you so email me at lisa dot knight at hotmail dot com.

We have to use the weed thing, thankfully it actually worked this time! I think we violate some obscure zoning rule if we don't... so hard to tell these days they keep changing.

As soon as the Sabres are done playing hockey & the Sopranos are over well cut the tv package WAY back. As far as we can and still get Discovery. My kids are addicted to Myth Busters!

Congrats again!
