Growing up in the country, my days were filled with fun and a lot of work. Dad allowed us to have fun, but only if our chores were done. I remember those days and all the different seasons that required different chores to be done. Spring, mowing the lawn, weeding flower beds and landscape work. Summer, mowing the lawn, cleaning the pool and sweeping the driveway. Fall, raking the leaves and cleaning up all the tree limbs. Winter, shoveling the snow, shoveling the snow and only bare pavement was allowed on the driveway!!
