I love supporting the local economy, and not just with food, books, yarn. When I need help with something around my house, that I don’t know how to do or don’t really want to learn that skill…I turn to a pro.
That pro is often my brother who built a beautiful garden shed, and just installed my new clothesline:-).
That pro is sometimes a friend who just loves to prune my decades-old lilac bush.
That pro might be a friend who cuts my grass. Or the pro who built a path to my shed by reusing the materials he installed about 15 years ago.
Or the pro who designs beautiful paths and places in the yard.
I love sharing the workload…with people that love to do what I don’t. They are good at it. And it helps the local economy keep churning too.
