I had a nice hair cut on Friday. It was the first time in ages I didn't have anxiety. Such a relief. I slept in until 8 a.m. today. A miracle. I am not as crumbly as I was. JB is managing a cold.
It's been a month since we've had a full day with sunshine. I just heard that on the weather report. It occurs to me that it is true. We've a light snow falling now.
Word of the day has to be apricity: the warmth of the sun on a winter’s day - and perhaps, by extension, a glimpse of sunshine after a long, hard chill. – Susie Dent
Vegetation Management continues on Crumbly Acres (<= the back story). It's been a long haul since the December snow storm.

I am making progress, although it is slow. It is a bit more evident. Thankfully. It is discouraging. I decided to fill containers with the cut up pieces. They will make fine kindling once they dry out.
I cannot do the biggest trunks, and I shall have to wait patiently until we get that done. Patience has been thin these days. This is such a limb. It takes too much juice out of the reciprocal saw, which only lasted a feeble half hour Friday. The smell of the pine sap is amazing, however. It's on my gloves, my saw, and my work coat. It's a hoot, the sweet smell, and the hard work.
