Does anyone remember...

... "Bend and stretch, reach for the sky... stand on tippitoes oh so high..." It was the theme for a program my kids watched back in the 70's. Perhaps a small, Canadian program.
That's what I was doing today. Over the last couple of days, Peter pruned a maple tree, an apple tree and two lilacs. My job was to chop up the branches, save the bigger ones to burn next year in our chiminea, and put the rest out for yard-waste pick-up.
I did lots of bending, stretching and carrying, although if I'm being honest, Peter did more reaching for the sky when he was pruning than I did today.
I also cut back some of the perennials, dug out the rest of the annuals, and in all spent 2 hours in the yard. Beautiful cool, sunny day, and it felt great to be outside.
Peter is out on one of the motorcycles with a friend. When he comes back, he will drop me off at the Pickering Town Centre, 30 minutes south of us, and I'll do some Christmas shopping while he has his bouzouki lesson in Whitby.
Life is good... hope you're having a great day too.
