I did cut a deal with my LSH whose turn it was to do our taxes this year. I traded mucking out the pond for taxes. Funny enough: we BOTH think we got the better end of the deal.
So, our taxes are filed, and the amazingly resilient Demeter and Persephone who somehow managed to survive the winter-of-never-ending-polar-vortices in that teeny pond choked with oak leaves are quite happy to be in clear, clean flowing water again! It does appear that spring is tenatively here.
