Spent most of my weekend outside, following DH and his chain saw around the property. We're still in the process of establishing a 200 feet defensible area (fire break area) around the house and garage.
I've been dragging and stacking limbs and brush and then we haul it into our yard and chip it for mulch. Plus, I'm loading wheelbarrows of mulch to different areas of the yard that need it. Today I planted a couple more bushes and a wild ginger in my shade garden. I've been getting a good work out, both strength and cardio.
Fire season is here with a vengeance . . . conditions have been elevated from high to EXTREME. Every day more fires around our area. The guys and gals with our volunteer fire department are working their butts off keeping us safe. So very thankful for them.
Just finished one hour in the (cool) hot tub and I'm ready to melt into bed.
Hope you had a good weekend too!
