A rainy day.
It has mostly rained all day but the morning was rain free and that’s the way it is now in the evening too. A bit chilly to be honest so I have the radiator working in my bathroom. I mowed the lawn and I would have finished in time before the rain if it wasn’t for the cord. For a reason I just don’t understand it had broken in a place that never is twisted while mowing. I always hold the cord in my left hand to keep control of it and it broke where it just hangs loosely.
I could mow without any problems for a while when the mower just died and as soon as I touched the cord the mower started again. This doesn’t matter if it’s just a tiny piece left to mow but I had barely started🙂 I really tried to keep my temper but finally I ran inside and brought a very sharp knife and cut the d..n thing in two places and put it together again🙂 The sky then suddenly decided it should open the gates to the pond in the sky and let all water out of it just above me. I have no death wish and a cut cord no matter how well I had protected the cut isn’t a nice thing to use while the rain is pouring down so I had to stop for a while.
But I really needed to continue as soon as the rain stopped because I hadn’t mowed for two weeks and long wet grass never dries no matter what so I figured it was best to finish what I had started. Now it’s done and on Monday I’ll buy a new cord. This one can be used indoors if I even need a ten meter (much the same in yards) long cord🙂 It’s time for a pot of tea and perhaps something to eat. I have a can of peaches I might open up🙂
