I can do this. January? I dealt with the weather and having a new dog in the family. February We start clearing the west section and fence line. We're also working at sailing club. I'm hoping to get the west section finished. When I don't, I roll it into March which works because I can do the rest of Feb and March to do list done. Also we get a chain saw and someone to teach me how to use it. March March is all about the west section of the property. I'm clearing a section for the pups and for me. It's looking great. We're sorting the dogs, the chickens, a wood pile, and cleared fence lines so that they'll be easy to work with. I take out the swing and begin clearing the house section. We get wood piles moved and the dangerous limbs moved. We move the old fence and the barbed wire that some idiot threw on the ground and the let get covered with dirt and limbs. We're thinning out the woods so that you can see through them. The area is made safe and fun for the pups. I'm getting ready to move the fence and fix the front and side fences. I hope to have all of this done by the end of the month. At this point, I have 10 days left. I'm trading off by doing some of the April stuff when the March stuff can't be done. More than once, I'm on schedule. This is true even when I'm having to change schedules when the weather is bad or there are unforeseen things that must be dealt with. For example, when the Ashplund people are in the area and I use the three days that I was going to clean kitchen/closet to work with them to get limb moved, right of way cleared,, and limbs picked up. It's working. I also hope to have the pups sorted for the year. I learn to say "no" and get yard work done here. I learn to say, "I'm sorry but I can't because of previous commitments." I get my stuff done. It's a good already done list and the month isn't over yet. April ?
