Squirrels and ?????'s

the squirrels have been very busy around here...
there are pecans on the trees...
well more on the ground than in the trees...
they are eating like no tomorrow...
does this mean another cold winter here in Texas???
I have never hired a landscaper before for my lawn...
I've paid one to do my Mom's every other week...
but never for mine...
well I did yesterday...
what in the world was I waiting on...
I can't believe how fast they came in...
got it all done and were on their way...
so worth the $65 I paid...
and I have a big place....
well let me tell you....
I will be using them again and again....
Just not enough time to keep everything up and done....
so what chore did you finally give in and pay someone to do?
were you happy with the results?
or did you go back to doing it yourself????

Smart girl you are! I had a cleaning lady when I was working. Gosh I miss her... It was so nice to come home from work on Thursday evening and the entire house was clean all at once. It's only been that clean once since I started doing it myself. Our yard is so small that we've always just done that ourselves. If we had a big yard we would probably hire that done too.

We are not do-it-yourselfers at all, so we pay people to do lots of things, which may be why I'm still working instead of retired. Like Deb above, I love coming home and having the whole house clean...I can smell it when I drive into the garage.

Good for you. We employed a "once a week" gardener for a while but then he gave up so we gave up the garden and moved! A x

we finally broke down and hired a man to *treat* our yard...you know fertilize it, etc. yay! the yard looks great.

hired a painter. that was another story. maybe the yard will distract from the PAINT dripped on our roof! :(

Oh yeah! I do hire out the really nice part of my yard that needs to be edged and trimmed and blown. So worth the money. Love when they come on Thursday! Alas, I have to mow the back 40 myself. Much wilder look back there and the goats don't mind if it isn't trimmed or edged.

We hired the "Monroe" brothers for a remodel.....big mistake. We ended up fixin' thing right after they left.

May God bless your beautiful day!!!

I pay the neighbor's son to keep up our yard, and it's so worth the money.
Hmm, squirrels gathering all the nuts does seem like they're expecting cold weather.
