Yesterday I had to make the admission that my knee needs rest. It was an easy diagnosis since my knee was stiff and painful every time I got out of my chair to walk around the house. Because of this, I chose to not go to the Moonlite hash. Fortunately for me, Bonnie was busy all day, doing something cool that I will let her divulge here if she wishes, and I was able to drive over to her house to share dinner (which she made) and some beer on her lovely front porch. Upon returning home I briefly chatted with my mother on the phone before lying down and falling asleep well before 10pm.
When we all started sheltering in place last Spring many of us aspired to be “better people”. In addition to mucking around with plants, I started making lists of chores I’d hope to accomplish on a monthly basis. At first I was checking the list often, making concerted efforts to knock off items. As I mentioned at the end of September, it was my only month of complete failure. This morning I realized that I’d not even started a list for October. I’ve changed this already.
This afternoon I am going to attempt to get back doing destruction and cleanup in the backyard. My hope is that in a week or so I will finally have the airspace cleared so that I can plot the location of my raised vegetable beds. The clearing will also provide some more burnable materials for this Winter’s fire pit fires. Woot!
Hope you had a healthy Monday.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 190.4 pounds (+0.8 from last week’s weigh-in); not horrible, even though I did hike over fifteen miles this last weekend.
