Whew! And WooHoo!

Monday, November 04, 2013

Today was supposed to be a nice bright sunny day and DH and I had planned to get much done in the yard to prepare for winter. Sadly, it didn't turn out to be a sunny day, but there was no rain in sight, just lots of gloomy clouds looming overhead, so we dug in and got started anyway. DH ran the lawn sweep to pick up as many leaves as were possible in 30 mph winds, along with the corn debris from the corn picker that came through the neighbors field yesterday. Always a mess there, but we're used to it now after 15 years of living in the country. We love living out in the country, the quiet, the sights, sounds, smells. Walking the dog late one night last week, I heard an owl whoot-whoo-oooo and all I could do was smile. How wonderful that was. But, I digress. Back to the accomplishments for the day, since that's the purpose of this blog.

While DH was on the lawn tractor, I got started emptying planters, cutting back hosta, Autumn Joy sedum, hydrangeas and peonies. I pruned several trees and some smaller bushes. I transplanted some ground cover into our stand of pine trees, hoping for success next spring. We worked for over 3 hours outside today and got everything we had hoped for done.

We were exhausted when we finally came back into the house, but both of us fully pleased at what we had accomplished. My motivation was over the top today and I am just now winding down a little. On top of all of this, I also managed to get 4 loads of laundry washed and dried and put away, including bedding which we line dried in our 30 mph winds today. Needless to say, they dried quickly. Love the smell of fresh air dried sheets!

After all is said and done, we look around the house yard and say "Whew" And "WooHoo"!!
