It was kinda hard to fathom yesterday that a year ago I camped at Hard Labor State Park and rode my bike long distance twice, and went for a hike. This July 4th weekend I was a slug, doing little more than farm choring.
My physical labor yesterday consisted of pulling a couple of volunteer tomato plants as well as some plants I thought were lima beans, and replacing them with a variety of small pepper plants. I am keeping my fingers crossed that my peppers and eggplant will be late summer stars.
Yesterday was not one of my better mental health days, a lot of weight pressed down on me. It sent me into a significant mental tailspin last night… I have also had a pain in my back that I’m “monitoring”, hoping that it will go away on its own soon. It feels like a pulled muscle, but continues to linger.
I was really good about my calorie intake until I met my buddy at Taco Mac in Virginia Highland, and then returned home to eat another tomato sandwich, some more squash casserole, and a Klondike bar. Whoops!
Once again I only heard, but never cared to go out so look at fireworks. The 4th of July celebrations have never been high on my list of things in which to participate.
I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was WHILE.
