It is important to get your hands dirty. Last week I had the pleasure of climbing a thirty plus foot tall tree and giving it a haircut. This week for my outdoor therapy I decided to try my hand at doing a bit of patio repair. It is really just one big puzzle when you look closely, the pieces are just a bit heavier.
What I have learned is these trips outside our kitchen keep the juices flowing instead of getting stale and stagnant. Now I am not planning on going into the landscaping or masonry business though I have come to appreciate the work it takes to keep the world beyond the kitchen doors in working order.
