The sister barter system

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Last week, I spent the day at my sister's house cleaning our her garage.
It's a job she was dreading and we finished it in about 5 hours.
She was so relieved and it felt so good to look into the garage and see an organized space...

This week, my sister has spent two days at my house. We have cleaned up my perennial gardens, cut down the ornamental grasses, cleared out the floor of the barn, cleaned up the black hickory nuts from the ground and gathered firewood.

These were jobs I was dreading and knowing she was coming over, I knew they were going to get done. The jobs don't seem half as daunting if we do them together!

    Oh how absolutely wonderful!

Reminds me of

    What a nice sister you have emoticon

I don't have any sisters or brothers, but my DH is pretty helpful at times. We got about 1/8th of our yard done before my hips gave out. Wish it was warmer, but heavy rains are expected and so I think I am going to go outside for a while and tackle some more today. Hopefully he will be willing to clean up my trimmings when he gets home from work this afternoon.

    It is so great that you have good relationships with both of your siblings. (Not sure if there are others, but you recently mentioned your brother, too!)

    Nothing better than spending time with a sister. Getting dreaded chores done with them---priceless
