Homesteading As A Senior

We go from one season that requires a lot of physical work to another. Now we are in the snow season and this time of year the snow is mostly light but being light that causes drifting so we seem to be constantly moving it from one place to another. Later today I will be starting the tractor up and pushing a couple large accumulations to the down side of the mountain. That requires first shoveling them out to where I can get to them with the tractor.
We consider this one of the most beautiful places to live and to live here we must deal with the harsh winters. We pace ourselves so that we don't over do the strenuous demands. It is possible as long as we plan carefully and stay focused on the task at hand.
