I started doing some yard work as a way to try and be useful. This included trimming up all the strange little trees and bushes that have been hiding around the leaning barn (before they start to bloom).
As well as cleaning out some of the weed vines from one of the evergreen trees. Where I proceeded to be COVERED in little stickers. In fact, the majority of them stuck to my hat like little woodsy decorations.
Another labor-intensive task I am working on is moving rocks. Literally. The rocks we dug out of the ground when digging the new foundation are all being moved to a rock pile across the yard in the grove. ACROSS THE YARD. HAULING ROCKS.
I just move a little at a time because I am weak from months of winter with relatively no manual labor. I will be Sheera again soon though.
After getting most of the rocks out of one pile (there are three large piles of dirt/rock/clay) I decided to try and start spreading it out across the yard. (Because who knows when we can get a large machine type skid loader or something rented to spread all that out). However, the first day (after five hours of working on the pile) it started to pour down rain. So I couldn’t finish. The next week I spent three hours spreading it out and I hope for a few more hours of good weather to get the thing completely gone.
