We've rejoined the land of the living

Today we decided its out the door to tackle the yard work no matter how bad we're feeling..we are still not 100% but I think we're finally on the road to recovery.
Its been pretty cold here, but the sun was shining today, and we took advantage. I mowed all the front lawn (not hard on a ride on)...and we trimmed trees, bushes, flower beds and our lilac hedge..I'm not a fan of the power saw..but we needed to use it. A tree fell from the property next to us onto our back yard over the winter so we had to chunk that up and get rid of it...glad to see your all doing well..and theres been many new babies in the blogging family..wow its hard to keep up with them all..and they are all so cute...
Take care everyone and stay safe out there...I envy those of you who 'didn't' come home early..wish we were still out there...


remember
Home is where you park it!!

  7. After great weather al winter its hard to adjust to our Canadian spring weather. Nothing like a bit of fresh air and sunshine to make you feel better.

  8. Glad to read that you are on the plus side in recovery from your colds/flu.

    We're seriously considering staying longer in the US southwest, next winter, quite likely till late April.

  9. Be glad for that power saw, cutting up a tree by hand is too much like work, especially if you're not quite feeling 100%.

    At least you had "fun" in the yard after all that sickness! ;c)

  14. Glad you are feeling better, being sick is the pitts, I know that first hand, loved your jack in box analogy.
    just cathcing on a few blogs. Now
    as far as that truck driver, if something like that ever happens again...get is trailer or tractor #, call the company and lodge a complaint...believe me being in trucking my whole life dispatchers and safety departments take these types of things quite seriously. Personally would have a drivers hide for pulling a stunt like that. Since he was just sitting there reading he knew what he had done and was just be an ahole.
