|Front shrubs, snowball tree, barberries trimmed thanks to Lucas|
I spent most of Friday, Saturday working outside, clearing the rose beds of winter mulch and trimming and clipping. We were able to hire someone from a Landscaping service to trim some of the shrubs and I was very pleased with Lucas' work which saved me a couple days, well worth the $$ spent. With his power equipment he was done in less than an hour, I was in awe.

I love this outside physical work, the smells and the ground and am thankful I can do it, but I suppose I could learn the art of pacing myself. Still one of my cousin's reminded me that as her mom, my aunt said, "If you do your own housework and yard work, you will be strong, healthy and never need to go to a gym." I do though maintain my Y membership and spend my quality time there, zumba, weights, toning, yoga, then I come home and hit the grounds for free workouts.
