It might not look like 1500 pounds of rocks, but I’m Sure Goodnight can attest to the weight. She shoveled all of it last night to help our neighbor get her landscaping rocks out of her driveway.
Our neighbor has had heart surgery and shouldn’t do any heavy lifting or any exertion that would affect her chest area. We push her garbage bucket up and down the driveway and I climb the ladder to clean debris out of her gutters in the spring and the fall. It was no surprise that she knocked on my door yesterday when her rocks arrived. She knows I will help.
We are both a bit rebellious when it comes to the townhome association and their landscaping regulations. Her fighting spirit was reflected in the rocks she had delivered. She pull up shrubs that the association hasn’t taken care of and actually made worse with their careless mowing and snow-plowing. The rocks have now replaced all of that. GN shoveled and wheeled. I dumped and raked the rocks into place.
The thing is, GN volunteered. I didn’t have to ask for her help. the side benefit of hard work is a welcome night’s sleep, too.
