What does the term mean?

A reference below:

I was mowing away, basking in my new-found glory, and suddenly I was saying a prayer.



It means that the glory he was basking in was, at the time he was basking in it, according to this sentence, new to him; he had only recently found this glory when he began mowing his lawn.

  • Does that literally mean a new glory in his life or something more mundane? – user49119 May 30 '17 at 12:10
