It's official - it's a zen thing 

I've been under the weather the last few days with the creeping crud. Just walking across the living room floor has felt like running a 10 mile marathon so I have limited my activities to vegging out in front of the tv. Yesterday with tea, tissues and cough drops at the ready I draped myself over the sofa and turned on HGTV, one of my favorite stations.

A new show came on, Rock Gardens, hosted by Michelle Phillips. For those of you who don't remember, she was one of the mamas from The Mamas and the Papas. Michelle started talking about some "rockers" like the guy from Hootie and the Blowfish, Grace Slick from Jefferson Starship, and Micky Dolenz from The Monkees. The first guest was John Oates from Hall and Oates. He and his wife have a big spread up in Colorado and love to work in the gardens. John talked about how he enjoys mowing the lawn and then the words came out of his mouth. "I like mowing," he said. "It's kind of a zen thing." Wow! I couldn't believe my ears. I thought I was the only one who enjoyed mowing the lawn, but now I know. Of course he has 5 acres and uses a John Deere tractor to cut, but there's still some overall similarities. It's relaxing, it's a job that you can see the results of pretty quickly, and it's a back to nature kind of thing. I love it and now I know I'm not the only one. So, it's now official - it's a zen thing. Happy Gardening.

Hi Blogger,
It's official - it's a zen thing is truly a nice piece of work!
While looking for more information about garden tools,
I see so much rubbish, that I am glad to find a blog like yours.
My interest goes out to garden tools related information,
but It's official - it's a zen thing is a real inspiration for me.
