A New Form of Exercise

Craftsman 21" 159cc OHV Craftsman Engine, My Stride Rear Drive Self-Propelled Lawn Mower at

Yep, a new self propelled lawn mower. I decided that since I walk almost every day, I cold mow the lawn at the same time.  I mowed for over an hour this morning starting at 7 a.m. I started to go out at 6 am and then realized the neighbors were home and probably wouldn't appreciate that. But, I can't believe how hot it was at that hour.  Once again, we seemed to have skipped spring.

What else did I accomplish today? I canned 9 pints of Orange Chicken.

I used this recipe from Creative Canning Blog.  Yesterday, I canned 3 pints and tasted one today. I decided it was good, so I tripled the recipe today. I think tomorrow I am going to try some Cranberry Chicken.  But I also see a Marsala Chicken that looks pretty good.  I still have 10 pounds of chicken breast to put up.

Hopefully, I'll make it back to the sewing room for a little bit tomorrow.  Working in the sun wears me out. I don't know how my dad did it for so many years. And at this age. I do believer our parents are way tougher than we are.

Happy snipping, stiching, and quilting. And now canning.


  1. you have more energy than I do I will stick with my riding mower :) I can never get the push mowers to start anyhow I can't pull the cord hard enough

  2. Is that a personal pace mower? We got one a couple of years ago and I love it! My hubby and I "fight" over who "gets" to mow. ;-) Good exercise, too. ;-) Enjoy your time in the sewing room today.

  3. I wish I could find chicken at such a great price - I'd love to get some canned too! blessings, marlene
