Good afternoon Folks,
It has been a lovely day today, and I hope you all have had one as well.
Thank you again for all of your feel better wishes. I'm not 100% back to normal, but better than I was. I just take each day as it comes and deal with it. I've had to resort to OTC pain meds, and I don't like to do that, but it helps having the pain gone so that the muscles will relax and heal. Healing herbs and vitamins, and massages are all contributing to the healing.
I've worked 8 days in the last two weeks, and it felt good having today off to putter around here. I washed and hung out a load of laundry, laid some decking boards, and painted the picket fencing that we put up a couple of weekends ago. I sat on a plastic milk crate to paint, I was in the shade and there was a nice breeze. Only got the front done and hopefully will do the backside Tuesday morning.
As I posted before, the fencing was 'found' curbside, cut into 24"-30" sections. This morning when I thought about painting, I went out back to check on what kind of paint we had in our stash of curbside shopped paint. The paint I used was in a 5 gal bucket, maybe between 1/3 and 1/2 full. The paint had settled, so we had to mix it up, and it's a nice creamy color and I love how it turned out.
Here is the area as it was with the clothesline. AWFUL. Zone 10 ~ s.e. FL
Here is after clothesline is moved and the picket fencing put up.
Here are two pictures from today. :-)
There is still more tweaking to do in this whole area and I will show it as things progress.
Now, here are some pics of Kathleen, a hybrid musk and a really sweet rose that I bought many, many years ago.
I don't work again until Thursday, so look forward to puttering around here. May you all have a great week whatever you are doing, wherever you are.
Begin doing what you want to do now.
We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand,
and melting like a snowflake.
