I walked the dog this morning, since it seems unlikely that we’ll get to walk for the rest of the week. And we made it the whole way just wet but not muddy. Until the end, my driveway maybe ten feet away, when I stepped in a huge mud puddle. Up to my ankle.

Our neighbor has planted some trees in the wettest spot between our two yards. I wonder if it will help. At the least, it should help dry the yard up more quickly after it gets all boggy like this.

Meanwhile, our lawnmower is in the shop and our grass needs mowing and I am at a loss as to how to make that happen. I know no teenagers. I don’t know who else you hire to just mow your lawn once.
