The rain came down hard this afternoon. You could see it coming. The western sky was dark blue and getting darker as it got closer and closer. It was a good enough excuse to pick everything up and pack it in for a day. I had already uncovered a fairly good sized ant hill and had been bit a number of times by the red ants. I’ll have a number of bags of old mulch to drop off at the compost yard since I have someone that will do the driving.
My oldest was concerned that I was overdoing it was ready to tattle on me to my doctor. I told her all was fine and I was quitting for the day anyway. I ended up taking a really long hot shower followed by an hour and a half nap. there were also a few text messages from my sister scolding me. Sore? Yes. Having a relapse? Nah. But I will say I was starting to push the edge so I’ll have to be a bit more mindful when I go back out to work on this some more. It’s not a race.
So I’m sitting here in the solitude of a Friday evening listening to some tunes and watching a new front slowly move in. There’s a nice light show that’s with this new front and it’s lights up the horizon occasionally. I’m going to sleep well tonight I think.
