    1. Not here, Ron. I will leave that one to your expertise. Enjoy.

  2. There sure is. Add a house too, (okay even apartment dwellers have things to do) but yes, we can always find something to keep us busy! Also, I have to add again, your old blog photo/background with the books was cool, but I sure enjoy seeing your little sweeties every time I visit here. They just make my day. Thanks furry friends!

    1. Absolutely, Karen. I appreciate your nice comments about my new header & footer. I love books and reading, but there is more to me than that. I wanted to reflect the things that are really important to me. They make my day, too. Thanks. Hugs.

  3. I was trying to decide whether home work was one word or two. I think it was one word in high school. :)

    1. I wanted to distinguish that it is not "that" kind of work. It is the kind about your home, "on" your home. Two different kinds of work, but still "work".

  6. Unfortunately, your six words are true!

    1. I am sure you do, Beth. When you are in the middle of it, you wish for a break. When it is over, you miss it. Human nature, I guess.

    1. Spring and fall, it is endless inside and out!

  9. All too true, unfortunately. It's okay if you have the resources (finances and labour) to manage, but when you don't....It can be a burden, sometimes.

    1. That is so very true. I know you feel my pain, too.

    1. Ha! I guess that is one way of looking at it. It can be a lot for one person, though.

  11. Looks like a nice place you have your trailer, Ann. :)
    Terrible confession- it was warm and sunny this afternoon and I sat in the garden with a book while Michael cleaned out the conservatory! I did help, just a little...

    1. Our raised ranch house is built on a hill. It is great in this rainy season, as the basement stays dry. Raised ranches are pretty common here.
      It's good that you helped, even a little.

  12. My son, who is a Senior, was complaining that there was nothing to do. I named off several things he could help with in the house, and that quieted him quickly. :)

    1. Either way, whether he helped or was quiet, you won out. Right, Mom?

  13. There certainly is! Today we actually managed to complete a task that has been needing to be done for YEARS - we cleared out the shed and garage and have a load of stuff that is going to be thrown away. At last!

    1. Thank you, Gillena. It is humble, but it is Home.

  15. So true ... there's always work to do at home!

  16. Your singing to the choir. When you live in a 102-year-old house, it never ends. But at least with Spring some of it can be outside. Hugs, Janet

    1. Ha! It never ends here either. And yes, inside and outside.

  17. My husband would say that there's always something to do if I'm around. :-) I hope you find time soon to relax.

    1. I have a feeling that is a good thing, Allison. I hope you get to relax, too.

  18. I agree with you, and it is a good thing to have something to do every day.

  19. Amen, my friend. that is the truth. We just had a section of our fence fall down a couple of days ago. SMH.

    1. Oh no! I hate when that happens. We have had to re-do sections that fell from wind damage. In 2010 we had a tornado go over, and it took half of the yard out, including a few trees.

  20. I totally agree! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a nice comment! I'm your newest follower.

  21. Indeed there is! Not always what I want to do, though.
