A Little Bit More Work Done

I raked up the bark and leaves in my little “log-yard” the other day, and today I managed to load them on the wheelbarrow and dump them over a bank about 40 yards away. I also raked around the big oak in the front yard and got another load, two more loads, for a total of four. I also got a tarp placed over the partial stack of wood there. As slow as I move, and as often as I must take a breather, the little job took me about 1-1/2 hours. It wasn’t hard work, but it still left me tired. Or maybe the latter was from not taking my “beauty nap” this afternoon. I was hoping to get the last of the chunks and poles drug up from the back yard, but I guess that will wait until next week now, since tomorrow is the Sabbath and Sunday it’s supposed to rain all day. © 2017

It is good to get out and do some stuff but not to over do. It took me a while to get a few unused muscles back in shape when I started the seasonal job again. I just don't use the ones where I reach over my head and lift heavy things during the rest of the year. You don't need to do things right away so it is good exercise for you.

I have come to the conclusion that beauty naps, while they don't make me any prettier, make my disposition a bit nicer.

I know what you mean. I work everyday til I get too tired, which doesn't take long. Then I knock off and start again the next day.

It feels good to be stirring around, too, SF.

Then I should sleep all the time, Sixbears! - lol

That's the system, Harry.
