The Wordsmith's Forge
The Writing & Other Projects of Elizabeth Barrette
Saturday Yardening
Is mostly being done by a crew of tree guys, who are making fantastic progress.  Our part is just occasionally walking around to supervise and give further input. 

EDIT: The tree guys are done and gone.  They finished both items on our required list, everything on the urgent list, and one on the would-be-nice list.  For the price originally quoted to do the two required items.  \o/  Also they were very insightful about interpreting things I would want.  I love working with people who realize that I understand their profession quite well, just lack the body and equipment for doing the actual work.  So now all the limbs are away from the house and driveway, and a lot of brush has got cleared away so there is more sunlight.  Also I have another mulch pile approximately the size of a car.  :D

Yay! For a HUGE pile of mulch all your own!
Today was Weed Day in my yard.

Yay indeed. I love mulch, I use a LOT of it, and it's much more convenient to get it made here for free than have to buy it or haul it elsewhere. And then it doesn't load down the truck for the tree guys. Everybody wins.

Re: Yay!

I use a lot of mulch too.
I've gathered at least ten pickup truckloads of raked leaves for the last two years (maybe 3 because there's one year I lost count after 6 or 7).

I'm glad you're feeling so mulch better. [I'll show myself out. ;)]

I am a hobby-linguist. I like puns. You have only to look at my poetry titles, where I often twist words for fun. And I love filk music, another source of wordplay.

Re: *laugh*

Did you see the Marcon 2016 concert videos ladypoetess put up on youtube? She even close-captioned them, which was beyond awesome!
