Yesterday I spent another three hours, roughly, working my small 13’x13′ garden plot; that’s how many roots I continue to encounter. One of the roots I pulled was actually quite pretty, kind of purplish in outer color with a stark white interior that I discovered when I accidentally peeled some of its bark (?). This root was at least fifteen feet long (!) because that is about as much as I got out of the ground before using the digging bar to sever each end. Yesterday I worked until muscle exhaustion arrived, which occurred about thirty minutes before sunset. It’s pretty easy to say that I haven’t done two consecutive days of such hard labor since I worked as a truck unloader / stock boy / bicycle assembler for Toys R Us when I was nineteen years old in 1984 (!!).
You won’t be surprised to read that I fell asleep fairly early, and slept pretty solidly last night. Sure, I woke up a handful of times but that’s normal for me.
Though I am not really looking forward to the resumption of German class tonight, I am looking forward to taking today off from doing manual labor to give my body a day to rest. Depending on how things go this quarter, I may decide to take a break from German classes after this quarter’s completion.
That’s all that I think I have for today. Hope you are remaining healthy and happy.
