Okay, I'm pretty much a girly-girl and I'm not knowing for doing terribly outdoorsy things. But there is just something so peaceful about lawn mowing! Plus it's a great way to get sunlight and fresh air... and use the riding lawn mower! And I like the sense of satisfaction each time I cut a new swath across the lawn.
Only downside? After cutting the former Dandelion City, the lawn now looks like Dandelion graveyard.
