Doing Some Yard Work Instead Of Sewing

Since I don;t really feel inspired to sew anything, I figured I would rampage through the yard! I ended up going to my Dad’s old house he is trying to sell and work on cutting down a tree that is a little too overgrown. After only a few minor cuts and abrasions, the tree is about half way down. Now my arms are really sore from using the hand saw, but at least now I feel mildly motivated to sew something, yet at the same tme, too tired to sew something.
