and did get a bit of pruning done today, along with putting out more of my rock phosphate on my windbreak trees/trees in gravel pit/and the clump of chokecherries along the fence.

I'm glad the pruning is almost done, as despite my having a pruner approved for ease of use by the arthritis foundation, my arthritis is getting the better of me even though I've been doing only a little pruning every few days.

The fur kids are great,

If it's not bitter here this time of year it's just not normal.

The snows been melting good even though it hasn't been getting as warmed back up as the forecasts showed it would.

I think I may just go ahead and,

go into com-pleat hibernation today, the forecast shows, high winds and freezing rain.

Next week back to snow for us!,,,Just in time for the bond-fire we've been hoping for at Christmas time while everyone's here! :D

It has turned out much nicer today,

and I've got my firewood supply in, in full force without any interference from the weather! :)

I'm still enjoying my "new" saw, much lighter and less tiring for smaller pieces, which is what most of my cuttings are is smaller pieces. :)

I may have found a place to cut wood for myself, and am waiting to hear back on this, wish me luck! :)
