Vacuuming the Yard!

Saturday, October 30, 2010

I have a new favorite electric yard tool!!

First of all, let me say, my back, legs, and hands are KILLING me right now.  I’m very achy.  But I would be much more sore without the use of my new favorite electric yard tool 🙂

To cut the suspense, I will tell you that I was able to use a lawn leaf vacuum and mulcher (our neighbor’s–but we ARE going to purchase one at some point).

Raking the outside portion of lawn was no problem.  I like raking.  It’s very therapeutic!  I made about 50 piles.  That’s when things started getting not so fun.  The bending up and down to put leaves in the bag was the horrible part.  I was so sweaty and sore and irritated.  That’s when our neighbor came over with his nifty tool and offered to let me use it.  And it was love at first flip of the switch 🙂

It took about half the time of doing it manually AND it mulched the leaves so that more leaves fit in the bags.

It’s the little things that make me happy 🙂

And this gadget is not too expensive…about $80 only.  For our house, which has TONS of leaves from our oak tree, this would be a VERY GOOD investment.

I can’t wait to vacuum the lawn tomorrow!!

On another note, I made an AWESOME meal…homemade burritos like we used to get at On the Border–brown rice seasoned with butter and salt, black beans seasoned with lime juice, salt and cumin, roasted potatoes seasoned with taco seasoning, fried onions and green peppers, and Mexican cheese…all wrapped in a flour tortilla and baked in the oven….SO FREAKIN’ GOOD!!!!  And we have lots of leftovers.  Leftovers yummy 🙂

Adios amigos…time for some ice cream and Tylenol.
