My happy place.

If you imagined me an airy fairy slip of a girl in a flowy dress puttering in my garden and giggling with the fairies I'm afraid you'd be sorely disappointed upon meeting me.

Today I'm a plain chubby gal in jeans and hoodie, riding a red Troy mower, wearing ear muffs and singing Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights very badly at the top of my lungs.

2+ hours on the riding mower and look at that... beautifully chopped grass. You can't see it very well from the photo but there are lovely straight lines up and down our giant hill from my super mowing powers :)

I don't think I could be any happier than cutting the grass for hours on end on a gorgeous fall weather day. Who knew that would be my happy place?


  1. WooHoo for us chubby girls in our jeans & hoodies! =D

    I can see a bit of your supremely straight mowing lines & am sooo jealous... I can't mow or cut or draw straight to save my life... o_O

    I'm so glad you were able to enjoy such a lovely day! ^-^

    I'm on my way outside for a walk in a few, myself.

    Hazzah for happy places where we can sing at the top of our voices! ^-^


  2. Lol - I have a friend who's happy place is on her little John Deere mower too!

    Nice lines!

  3. Beautiful work! And double wonderful to have enjoyed it so thoroughly! And yes, I third the shout out for chubby girls in jeans and hoodies! :)
