How Many Brush Piles...

can I brag about until you say, "Enough!"

I wrap my work around me and get lost in it.  I reenter reality and look behind me and think, Wow, I did that?

Progress continues.  I have not dropped from heat stroke and severe dehydration.  I seem to be bound and determined to reclaim this acreage an inch at a time.  That is a testament to my stubbornness, I guess, but on I go with piles of brush growing.

It may be difficult, hot, work but it is almost mindless so I can travel anywhere I want as I clip and pile.  I have been to the South of France, Wales, two hundred years and millions of years into the past. It all happens as I clip and stack, clip and stack, clip and stack.
 One stack
 two stacks
three stacks more
and stack four

Yep, there's a lotta stacking round abouts here too, with the hurricane that passed through - a week later and thousands still without power. WE are lucky to have ours and share with others. One of my friends has been coming in to do laundry and shower and we have been sending her home with supper all cooked - everybody is feeding somebody - the town itself is lacking in following any kind of emergency plan, so the people took it upon themselves to just do it. Good People
Your stacks are getting higher and I know you will soon add them to the main burn pile or do you have several? Loved the dark poetry yesterday :) Special hugs to Marcy and hi to all lol

Mindless as mowing the lawn. Although much slower I imagine.
Keep water with you.

That clearing thing is a never-ending job. We had to do this with a property in Illinois, and I was plagued with poison ivy after. Watch out for that little weed!

We finally got our brush pile all cleaned up. I know it is time to start more but I am just enjoying the clean.
I always feel so happy when things get trimmed. I am so impressed with your brush piles. That is a bunch of work.

I love hard work that allows you to accomplish one thing while pondering something else. It is a mind body cleanse of the best kind for me. Perhaps that's why I am a bit buggy right now....cuz I have no physical to cover up the lazy day dreams..........

I'm saving up my stamina for cooler days. I'm such a wienie! Good job- you are really working hard!

Be safe, carry water . . .

I love brush piles.

I actually have one in front of our house.

Our City does a curb pick-up once a month so ours is piled high with palm fronds and broken branches from monsoon winds.
