Contemplating servitude

Went out skiing today. The big swamp behind the main building site at the nursery is unaccessible until it freezes over, so thick are the woods around it. So, today I skied on the swamp and found the perfect place to build a little house! I would make a little drive through the woods, clear a little spot next to an oak grove, and build with a view towards the open water where a couple of trumpeter swans have spent some time the past couple of springs. This would, of course, require me to abandon the philosophy I smugly outlined below of not hustling myself deeper into debt. Yeah, whenever one makes some big sweeping statement, you are doomed to contradict yourself soon. Usually not within a couple of hours, though. I should have stayed in the office and stared out the window.
