Ever tried sweeping a pebbled porch?
Not so much fun, is it? You sweep and sweep and sweep and sweep and move the grass and dirt a measly inch and a half across the pebbly way.
Well… I’ve got my porches number and I’m sweeping it NO MORE!
That’s right… there are NO brooms involved.
I finally realized that using a broom was like getting on a broken down ferris wheel that gets stuck in the on position. Round and round and round you go, and you never get anywhere!
When that realization hit, I ran to the garage and grabbed my little blower.
Not much to speak of but it does a GREAT job.
I start in the back corner and blow it out first.
And I blow off the little critters that have found homes in the siding while I’m at it.
Methinks I need to blow off the blower, too, but oh wellz.
When I’m finished in that corner, I blow everything directly across the porch to the other side.
Then I get behind the dirt and blow it out to the yard where it belongs.
I do make a couple of passes and get up under the furniture to make sure it’s very, very clean.
And it goes from this nastiness…
So that’s how you sweep your porch without sweeping your porch… In less than half the time it takes to sweep using a broom.
It’s not being lazy… it’s being smart.
And I’m thirty kinds of blue raspberries over being smart.
Smarter not harder, right?
