Uses for nasty work
Our landscaper is no longer in the business, so Hubby & I are doing our garden chores ourselves this year. It's been about 3 years since we had to do the fall clean-up, and I can tell you right now, we didn't pay our landscaper NEARLY enough for the amount of work he did. This is truly back-breaking work, but we're taking it in chunks, so it's going along okay.
As I was tussling with dead plants in the yard, I crafted a chapter in my WIP. I've been tussling with it, too, trying to work out how to get the hero there in time for the heroine to save his butt. And lo & behold, while tearing out some thistles (VERY carefully since I am allergic to them and my hands swell up like puff fishes if I touch one), I had :: eureka!!::
Isn't it great when you're doing something icky & something good comes of it?
(This picture is just a reminder to me of why I'm doing all the tussling)
