As I sit here writing, my thighs are throbbing, I have an ice pack on my tired, over used knees and the rest of me is spent. We have been at the farmhouse for three days. There is no yard guy and no house keeper here. There are countless jobs that need to be done. When we run out of things to be done I am sure it will be time to start re-doing the things we did a long time ago! We have entered DIY land. Boot camp north.
The grass was super long when we arrived....BUT in order to mow we first had to pick up half of a tree that was blown all over our yard during a spring ice storm. Must have been quite a storm judging by the amount of rubble on the ground.
|Getting from this....|
|to these, plus one more giant pile not pictured...takes about 100 squats.|
|Earning my wine one pile of grass at a time!|
|"Help....we are strangling!"|
|"Ahhh, that's better, we can breathe!"|
|One parting shot...TJ did his boot camp in the garden.|
Talk about an upper and lower body work out!
