These beautiful spring days in the midwest are perfect for working out. I have been spending three to four hours a day doing manual labor around the yard. Instead of just wanting to get a job done, I am trying to remain methodical and not cut corners. I am learning that by slowing myself down, I am staying less stressed and enjoying the job so much more.
Today I spent several hours under a large cedar raking out the leaves, pulling up winter creeper that invaded the trunk and the ground cover. I sawed branches that were touching the ground, put herbicide on exposed roots of the winter creeper, and collected a mule load of clippings and leaves to throw in a ravine.
Now I am ready to shut the computer down and get myself ready for a good night's sleep.
