The danger of nice weather

Yesterday was bright and inviting. A day off, a cancelled lunchdate, and a surge of inspiration to work in the garden overcame me. Prune, weed, repot, stoop, bend, lift.

It was invigorating, cleansing. Clean air filled my lungs, sweat poured down my face. The world was mine and it was wonderful!

Until this morning.

My back is letting me know, quite adamently, that we aren't 25 anymore and I cannot just jump into hours of this stuff without paying a price.

ow ow ... nice meds ... ow ... mounds of pillows arranged just so, laptop, tv remote ... ow

Hair of the dog is the best solution! Stretch and get out there again! Nature and your yard beckon!
