I awoke this morning knowing that I had quite a lengthy “to do” list in mind. Cynical was working and I thought I’d knock out a bunch of projects in his absence. I didn’t, however, realize that perhaps I’d overbooked my day. Having a friend tag-along for most of the errand running made for a much more pleasant morning.
However, distribution of the mulch (number 1 on that list) was all up to me. . . and I didn’t time it well as I was hauling buckets in the heat of the day. Still, it’s done and I have a sense of accomplishment. As I sat on the backstep to escape the sun for a little break, I was reminded about how rewarding doing something truly physical is and how nice a little respit can be in the middle.
