A Week's Difference

Last Saturday I got to try out my recently purchased wheeled snow shovel/pusher/plow.  We woke up to a couple inches of snow and temps below freezing.  This Saturday afternoon finds us with sunny skies and temps in the high 50's (F).  Quite comfortable in shirt sleeves.  Had a lawn care guy come by mid morning and power rake the front yard, something I didn't get around to having done last year.  Got a bunch of the dead grass and last year's clippings out of it, plus mowed and got even more.  Now it's all set for me to mow for the rest of the summer.  It's starting to green up in spots and I imagine that will happen more and more as we move into April.

Last Saturday, about noon!

Today, about 1:30 pm.

Probably as the next week moves along I'll try to get the bushes and shrubs trimmed.  Cleaned out some vines growing on the back fence and between the garages, so I guess you can say I've started the yard work for this year.

And!  Last night I finished my third Stone Island Sea Story.  The plan for it now is... finish reading the book I'm currently reading, and then sit and read the printed out copy of Darnahsian Pirates. Want to see what needs to be revised, improved, and so on.  The majority of it has already had one fairly thorough edit and the first few chapters have been gone over a few times over the years.  The last five, those I've just written are basically raw and untouched, so they'll need more.  I'm also hoping to keep going on the writing and plunge right in to book no. 4. I don't have a super defined idea of what it will be, but I know it will continue on from the 3rd.  Sometimes I'd like to think it as akin to what was said about British warships during the Age of Sail.  "Built by the mile and cut off as needed!"  I'd like to get to where I just keep writing and cut or divide it into appropriate length stories/novels as needed.

Hope everyone is staying healthy and safe.
