Nice Days and Hard Work

Our unseasonably warm and sunny January days prompted me to  do long neglected yard work.  I pulled a bushel or so of weeds from the front yard and filled the big container in the picture 3 times with spent annuals and cuttings.

After all that work, I rewarded myself with tea and cookies on the porch swing.  A cold front is on the way that will provide me with a much needed rest.

    That front is coming, for sure. Congrats on getting so much done before its arrival — you deserved that rest!

    • We didn’t get hit too bad up here, except that our landline is out. How did you do?

        I woke up enough to hear the wind shift, but that was it. As far as I know, we didn’t have much action at all. When I put the bird feeders out this morning, I didn’t even see many downed branches, so I think we ended up being at the tail end of it all.

    I love the photo of you on the swing. It looks so relaxing. I like how you rewarded yourself.

  3. Great! It has been raining here all day, pouring at times, with a cold front moving in… Snow and ice on the way. Thanks for sharing!

    Best shot ever: lazing after hard work in the swing!!

  5. More swing time should be in your future, I was looking at my bench, chairs (with tables) and thinking I never sit there! Hope it will be warm enough to sit outside.

    By the looks of it you deserved the tea break! 👍
