A lot of repairs, hopefully work a few deals selling old mowers and such to make some extra cash, twiddle my thumbs, do some cost analysis, work on prospective clients for next year, twiddle my thumbs...

That must be the deluxe commercial grade gallbladder. The regular kind never comes with an hour meter.

It must of set you back a lot when it was new.

Just curious, how much downtime do you actually have in your climate?

Not much.

I'm still working. Tomorrow I'm checking out another leaf/clean-up job as well as meeting with another potential client who has 2 acres and is interested in doing a makeover for the front yard and needs to get the bamboo under control that lines the back of his property line (project for next year). First week in December we got an ice storm and the ground was covered for nearly two weeks so I should be busy right up until the New Year and then it should start picking back up in February with clean-ups and house washings. So, not much downtime.

Year end accounting and tax stuff (all kinds of random office work…)
Customer letters for Spring
Odd n end jobs to finish up
PLENTY of shop and equipment "to do" stuff (cleaning, maintenance, fuel stabilizer, organization, etc…)
Snow plowing and salting
Joining a gym this winter and sleeping in!!
Enjoying some downtime after 9 straight months of completely busting ass. We deserve it.

You could do lots of stuff! You could get a seasonal job, hang Christmas lights and Christmas decor), take classes and get license for other things like, irrigation, pest or herbicide, landscape. I don't do anything since I'm a college student and I live in Texas, I'm still able to pick up leaves, and just stopped mowing a couple weeks ago, but I do have a part time job and that keeps me busy along with school. Also odd jobs like painting and anything indoor is nice in the winter. Maybe you know someone that would like to hire you to do stuff around there house and yard. Me and a friend just did some work for a guy we go to church with and he paid us about $25 an hour each, for using my equipment and my friends truck to hang lights, pick up leaves, install 6 cu. Ft. Of mulch and move some furniture. Possibilities are endless, you can also think of some ideas for your company, daydream or make a wish list of an ideal setup. Thanks for reading if you did, sorry it's kind of long but I'm also pretty bored, lol.
