Yard work, hard work

Thursday, May 07, 2020

I used my bow saw all around my yard today and cut down a few small trees and lots of suckers from old ones.
I again called waste management this morning and they informed me that they were behind for some reason, would be here today to haul my trash away.

I then had to call the water department to inform them that my outside meter had the cover broken off and was just hanging out there in the breeze.
They immediately sent a guy over to put a new meter on the house.

DD mowed the lawn that was really high. We could never get a day when it was not raining or high winds or she was not ill.

I am so tired from cutting all of that stuff down, I had to stop every few minutes due to my asthma, using my inhaler for the first time in few months. Whew! I DO feel a sense of accomplishment though..
Yard done, bills paid, hair cut. Check. Time for a nap.. It was a long winter, so getting things organized after the illnesses and such, gets sort of overwhelming sometimes. I need a rest now. We will see if they do show up to haul that trash away..

    Lots done, and yes, outside work is heavy work. But I love it, mowing the lawn though, not so much. Larry has mowed our lawn at least 3 times. He now farms the lawn for something to do, and I am so glad he does. No tomato plant today either, suppose to rain, and it looks like it could start any minute. Guess all that fog in January, Feb. is starting to show up now as rain. But really do need some.

    Good grief! HOPE that your garbage is hauled today!

    Wow! You did a lot of work!!! I know . . . cut the grass @ the beginning of the week and it was really high. A challenge to get through! BUT now it should be easier.

    HUGS and rest up. YOu earned it.
