Something old

Lelly thinks of May as wedding month and has challenged everyone to come up with tings that match the saying
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

It is crazy how hard I found it to come up with something old. I have only been married 3 1/2 years, so all of those wedding gifts aren't really old, the old car that we did have - wrote off in a car accident, the old house that we did live in - moved to a new city. It took me a while but I did finally come up with this.
Our lawn mower is old, it spent about 10 years with it's previous owner who sold it to me for $9 at a garage sale last year. I can't even get the baby started, I need my husband to do that , but she works and will buy us a few years before we become proud owners of a new lawn mower.

oh I hear ya!
We just pulled ours out and are truly hoping to make it last 1 more season!
We bought ours for $5- and it has pliers wired to the side to hold stuff together- but once you finally get the thing started it works great!

It's so fun to see anything Canada. Although the snow you've had this spring is crazy! I miss being there (only two more weeks till we fly into Calgary). Yeah.
PS my sister is Kalina.

I just mowed my lawn yesterday. It's great to have them, but not my favorite job.
