Pain….sometimes it’s bad and sometimes it’s good. Pain from an injury is not fun…we’ve all been there at one time or another. Pain from doing something fun and exciting….just means you had fun and pain is easy to deal with from this fun. This is where I am right now. Believe it or not I love yard work. Not so much the process of it but the outcome of…. it’s done and it looks nice. Accomplishment is a fine thing to feel. Raking is not my favorite thing to do but it’s SO MUCH BETTER than shoveling…which I refuse to do and have not done so for the past four years. This weekend I raked our yard, picked up sticks that fell all winter and I feel every pull of that rake but it feels so good.
As for the rest of our weekend, well, it was a bit crazy. We are in the process of apartment hunting with our son who is ready to move out. I thought vehicle shopping was difficult….boy was I wrong. Apartment hunting is so much harder.
I also found a bit time to food prep for the up coming week ahead. I threw together more egg sandwiches for the freezer, a batch of chimichurri to use on grilled chicken this week, and a big pot of braised cauliflower for my lunched this week.
Life lately has been all over the place. We have been adjusting to some big changes and clearly, as stated above, more changes on on the horizon. I am trying hard to keep calm and have a open mind.
That will have to be enough for now….the sun is shining and I have to go out an enjoy it while it lasts.
