Back to the grind. as you say. Can feel the muscles working here.
Ginnie Hart: Even as a retiree, I know how Monday is different from the weekend, Bonnie. smile
En plein travail...
Ginnie Hart: Doing what has to be done!

Thankfully, she has the help of a caddy! And much easier to pull, too.
Ginnie Hart: So very true, Steven!
Oh yes, another tough week ahead, where to have coffee, what to read....smile Nice pic' Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It's true,Frank. Even as retirees we have so much to do and not nearly enough time to do it all! smile
Yep...
Great shot, Ginnie - I like this a lot!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth!

This is my type of thing, Ginnie, not too much of a grind!
Ginnie Hart: You and YOUR garden, Lisl! I know you would be happy doing what Ruth is doing here!

This is good Ginnie. A handy little truck she has
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. There are so many "tools" available nowadays to make the load a bit lighter!

Never a dull day at the farm. There is always something to do. Great picture, Ginnie. Great memories to keep.
Ginnie Hart: Never a dull day, indeed, Astrid. Bedankt.
C'est plus facile avec cette "brouette " il y a du travail !
Ginnie Hart: It actually helps make the work fun, Claudine, doesn't it! Merci.
Everyone who has a garden is doing this kind of work right now. I like doing, it relaxes me
Ginnie Hart: It's work for the soul, Marie, isn't it!

Toujours quelque chose à  faire
JP
Ginnie Hart: What would we do if we had NOTHING to do, JP, right? smile
Wat een mooi beeld van dit werk (zeker sloot schoongemaakt)
Ginnie Hart: It's a good kind of work to do, Marjolein, isn't it! Bedankt.

You must have enjoyed visiting your sister Ginnie. You are a real farming family.
Ginnie Hart: It's one of our homes away from home, Chad. It's not that we're a farming family at all but that they just happen to live on a farm that holds so much charm still, even without "farming" per se...if any of that makes sense?!

A never-ending list of jobs to do on the farm, I should think. I like the barrow.
Ginnie Hart: When you have the acreage like they do, Chad, you do want to keep it a bit "organized." smile
Book sorting at the Acorns shop for us this morning....but it is hardly a grind grin
Ginnie Hart: The fun kind of work, Bill!
Coucou Ginnie,
Alors, ça va t'y passer ou ça va t'y pas passer ?
Très sympa ta photo, et dès lors qu'il y a un jardin, on doit tous s'y coller en cette saison.
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Pascale. If you have it, you need to keep up with it, for sure! Merci.
Yes, c'est bon ! Youpiiiii
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Pascale. Merci.
boy THAT looks like a never ending story!!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure that's what they think, too, Elaine!

Quite a wilderness to tame - she will need more than a handcart. She should hire Astrid and you as well. Flying ticket every 6 months, with a stay of 4 weeks hard labour.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, I could help Ruth and Astrid could help Don! We've already talked about how much we wished we lived closer to them!!! Seriously.
Anybody who keeps a farm is never without something to do. We retired folks must have it made.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, both of them are now also retired, Brian, but there's a lot of upkeep on the farm, even though all they do is a small garden now.
I like the story captured here. There is always work to be done on a farm.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ruthie. There's always work to be done, I think, anywhere we live. HA! Some places more than others, of course.
A lovely capture in a late Autumn setting.

I've always wanted to spend the Christmas holiday at a farm, Ginnie. You have all the wood you need for the fireplace, homemade goodies from the kitchen, lots of laughter over the dinner table and perhaps even a sleigh ride if there is snow.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Beverly. You nailed it. Their farm has a lot of criss-crossing paths mowed through the tall grass, perfect for a hay/sleigh ride! smile
Hello, une jolie photo Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

Monday..back to work Ginnie

greetings
Ginnie Hart: Yup. Even for those of us who are retired. smile
There's going to be a lot of leaves to rake!
Ginnie Hart: Or blown away? Indeed, Tom.
A monday morning delight.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you,Cherry. smile
she is putting her back to it, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Ayush. She was definitely committed to the job at hand.

I love how her hair matches all the fallen leaves and things!
Ginnie Hart: You're so right, Robin. I hadn't noticed that!
