MEN IN TREES
February begins a round of heavy duty work for me. Not the least of which is working around the weather to prune the 8 trees in the orchard of our yard.
Our young neighbors got in the spirit of things this major sunny weekend – the wind was freezing cold and the sky crystal clear. We were so happy for the assistance and by adding a hearty dinner to the end of the day – it made the day feel like a regular barn raising.
Even Zip, our puppy came out to help and chew on fallen branches.
While the sun still shines we are fertilizing the rhododendrons, azaleas, and blueberry bushes. There is lots of weeding to accomplish also.
On to all the paper work, because the rain is coming back and we need to prepare those income tax forms.
There just does not seem to be enough hours in the day!
Do you have times during the year that are just amazingly busy? How do you organize your time around the weather? If you have to fill out income tax forms do you get right to it or procrastinate and contemplate?
