I am participating in a project over at My 3 Boybarians called Project52 (P52) which stands for “1 photo each week for a year.” There is an assigned theme each week and I try to take the best photo I can related to that theme. You can see all my other weekly photos here. Here is my picture for this week’s theme…
Here is my photo this week – representing still life. What is it you ask? It is the perfect finishing touch to mowing the grass … an edged driveway!
Ignore the weeds, the grass that needs to be swept off the driveway… we are concentrating on that perfect line between cement and weeds grass. The line that should always be distinct, clear, and never crossed in my book.
My hubby and I had a date last night to Home Depot (Yes, I love Home Depot as much or more as him…)
And we came home with this…
Our weed eater had stopped working and I was going crazy with overgrown grass over the road, driveway, and around my flower beds. We decided to go the battery operated route and I LOVE it! This is the perfect weed eater for a girl to use too – it is light as a feather and so much quieter.
No cord to pull, no gas smell, no heavy engine – just this cute little battery.
When we got home and put it all together, I told my husband, “Thanks for buying me a new weed eater!” He just smiled…
I say that because I do most of the yard work at our house. I enjoy it, he doesn’t… he works 55-60 hours a week and doesn’t have Saturdays off, I am home most of the time. It just works for us! I would much rather spend time doing something fun with him then have him out doing yard work on his day off too!
Oh the beauty of an edged driveway… I. am. happy.
By the way, they make a chain saw and a blower in the same line of tools – I think I might be adding those to my Christmas list.
Do you edge your driveway? Or are you rolling your eyes at my “perfectionism?”
