Cutting theme day

Leave a comment

I didn’t plan it this way but there seems to be a cutting theme going on today. I started the day with a haircut at 10 am. Took a short ride after that. Lots of people out today. The activity at Ellicott City Motorsports was like a beehive that had been stirred up.

I got home and I didn’t plan on it but decided to cut the yard. First cutting of the season and just 7 months to go till the last. I like cutting my own yard. Probably saw 4-5 neighbors today. One entertaining his young baby watching me go round and waving excitedly. Stopped and talked to another one and it just felt good being outside again. In the upper 60-degree range, a slight breeze but beautiful sunny skies.

Another wonderful day for a ride we got in the car and went with no destination in mind. Stopped at Anthony’s in Clarksville and had a good meal before heading home.

We get home from dinner and I see a fox run through the side of our yard with his dinner hanging from his mouth. A trot in his step like he had just gotten carryout. When you live next to the woods wildlife is there and sometimes in front of you.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • When you open the fridge door and see a tray of fresh homemade chocolate buttercream eggs you just know it’s going to be a good weekend.
  • As you get older you realize that a special dinner is not one you have to get dressed up for or the most recommended or talked about place, but one where the company is perfect no matter what is on the plate in front of you.
  • We usually have our granddaughter on Fridays. It’s spring break for my daughter the teacher so there is a void in our day that doesn’t feel right being they are together.
