Well, I was going to title this I Have a Severe Cramp in My Toe, but I got to talking to a friend on Facebook and now the cramp is gone. So, what to name it?
Got up late today, about 9:00. Ate breakfast, showered, ate lunch, got dressed and went to the courthouse and picked up paperwork to run for town council. Get this- the deputy clerk tried to tell me we were past the filing date, and we are. For Republicans, because they have a primary. "Lesser" parties and independents have until July 2. I said, "Yeah, it's not often you find a non-Republican in Benton County, is it?" and we all laughed, though the ladies in the office looked at their desks and wouldn't meet my eye. Sheesh.
Came home and realized it was nice outside!!! It did rain last night and this morning. So I changed and went outside. I fixed the soffit on my shed, using deck screws this time to keep it up there. For you purists, you haven't been chasing pieces of this crap all over the neighborhood for 9 years, so you don't get a vote. Found out there's some wood rot up there, too. Oh well. Explains why the nails weren't holding, anyway. Trimmed the dead flowers from last year off of the lilacs, except for one. It was above the shed roof and I didn't feel like climbing that high. After all of that, my arms were like noodles. Man, I am out of shape worse than I thought. So I decided it was a good time to move dirt and fill in the low spot my neighbor created when he took part of my yard for his garden. He voluntarily moved it back. I didn't say much because he does feed me from said garden. I have a BIG pile of dirt from when the ditch was dug out last fall that I used part of to fill in the gullies. I climbed up on top of it! I know! I wouldn't have done that before- too afraid of getting dizzy and falling off. It felt great!
So now the sun is going down and I need another shower. The cat wants fed, too, which is pretty much normal for her. So here are today's pictures. Enjoy!
I highly recommend yard work therapy for what ever ails ya. Gorgeous, gorgeous weather. I feel so strong and powerful this year, like I finally own myself and what I do and am. Is it real? I hope so. Will it last? I hope so. Will I have relapses? More than likely. But that's okay as long as I keep coming back to this.
