I will overcome this

woman carrying lots of stuff, triggered pain
No, it’s not laundry. But she’s either in pain or singing.

holy shit. and I mean that…wow. back spasms.

OK, back story here. I am taking steps, literally, towards health and wellness. And with more steps each day, I realized my muscles are tight; probably why my ankles hurt so much all the time. I did some very gentle yoga-type stretching yesterday.

This morning, carrying laundry downstairs, my back muscles started doing charlie-horses. Every move triggers more! Fun!

They’ve started to settle down since I sat down, although at first I couldn’t even raise my arms to type. Or pull myself closer to the desk. This is stupid. I’m worth more than this. I’m glad I’m fixing this.

And joy in the morning! I got up able to walk. The ankle pains were really lessened just by that one session of gentle stretching yesterday.

Walking the sheep dogs

I walked over for a shower this morning, and saw people walking their border collies and other dogs. Wanted to get a picture but the phone was safely back here at the camper. Slept very well! 

It’s really been fun. Since we didn’t have to run home last night after setup, we walked around the barns including the Llama Barn, including the Sheep Barn. We were watching sheep out the window. We were watching horses out the window. We set out back with our chairs and made new friends. Just a great evening! So now we’re doing breakfast and I’m going to go find some more coffee and help clean because Stacy is got all she’s busy, she’s all busy and stuff and I should be helping. See you later folks!

More important – How do I get it out of my car?? I need some strong people to help me wrestle it out!

It’s a Toro, not new but the engine was replaced¬† a couple of years ago. Owned by one person, used within his family all these years. Started right up and everything looked to be working fine! Now maybe I can finally get my gardening started.

Who would have thunk I’d have a new-to-me tiller today? Not this girl. I guess never be closed down to unexpected things to happen in your life.

Tomorrow, I till. Want to follow along?
