Happy Hump Day.
Not much is going on in my world and at the same time I never feel relaxed.
I spent a good couple of hours cleaning up the backyard, mostly hacking with my chainsaw and then stacking branches. I was also able to cut up and move a portion of the smaller sections of the pine tree; the internal decay it has toward its top helps a lot. The lower, healthy, and thicker section still lies on the ground awaiting the day for a cutting party.
I can tell that my growing pile of yard waste in the far corner of the backyard will require further attention at some time in the distant future.
Given the state of my knee I took extra caution to ensure that I didn’t do any further damage. There is still much work to be done, but I am making progress. As I continue to clean up I am discovering how much more (sunny) yard I have now, and it almost makes my cramming of the raised garden beds into one tight section laughable. To be fair, when I originally planned the plot I had no idea how much the yard would open up with the removal of the pine and privet.
I was able to shower and motivate myself to make an Aldi run after calling it quits in the backyard. By and large the ITP Estate is now stocked with enough food to last a good three weeks. Beer on the otherhand is another story…
As has become the norm I passed out early on the futon while watching videos and slept hard for a couple of hours. And as has also become normal I woke often during the night and was awake for good before 5:00am.
Today the knee hurts a bit, and the tendinitis in my right arm is also bugging me. Getting old sucks! 🙄
Hope you are staying forever young, healthy, and happy.
