Outside Jobs in the Winter

Our house in the winter

Despite the blue skies and sunny weather we still have a lot of snow outside.  During the summer, there is an endless list of jobs that can be done, but that list gets significantly shorter when all is covered in snow.

I just have a short list of jobs, that I would love to add to.  If there are some jobs that you can think of, please tell me.  Miss Love enjoys being outside and is always looking for work.

This is all of I’ve got:

  • sweep the front porch (especially after a fresh snow)
  • pick up recycling (the wind and my bad aim are not a good combination)
  • shovel the walkway (it turns out they won’t deliver mail if you don’t)

I have debated adding walking the dog to the list.  It would only involve walking back and forth in front of our house and the neighbors a bunch of times.

It seems like one of those things that should be a chore, since he is everyone’s dog.  But he keeps running away wandering off, and it may just be a lack of good exercise. 

Right now I am at the point that I would pay somebody to do almost anything that keeps me from having to call up and down the street looking for our dog.

What do you think?

    Sounds like a great list of jobs to do. I don’t miss having to shovel snow in the winter time. Out here all we get during the colder months is rain.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
