In a couple of weeks or so, summer will be soon over. In a few more weeks I will reorganize again our closet, keep our summer clothes and bring out those totes that contained our fall sweaters and jackets. But despite the fact that the days seem to be shorter now, [another indication that summer will really be over soon] I know there are still a lot of time for me to enjoy summer activities like - mowing the lawn.

No, I don’t actually and literally mow the lawn. In this household, it's a guy’s job. With 5 acres of property, it will take me more than a whole day to finish the job. I just love the sound of the mower and the smell of a newly mowed lawn. When it is summer in Maine, the mowers are busy running the lawn left and right. And for now, I will just enjoy the sound, the sight and the scent until the plow takes over.

I just love the smell of freshly cut grass. It seems refreshing; so earthy! :)
