Mowing the lawn has always been one of my least favorite chores. I didn’t even like it as a kid when we had a riding lawn mower. I think the last time I looked forward to lawn mowing was when I was really little and my dad would pull me in my wagon behind the mower.
And yet, as a homeowner, one of the chores that gives me the biggest sense of accomplishment is mowing the lawn. I’m not really sure why. But looking at a newly mown lawn, especially if I’m the one who mowed it, makes me happy.
