Doing all this yard work on my own has given me a lot to say the least. Although I cannot operate the 62" walk behind commercial mower, I have been holding my own with the weed eating and other tasks.
Achy joints in my hands and back as I crawled through the beautiful ferns and flowers were soothed with muscle rubs and Vicks...yes, Vicks!
All those additional miles I've been racking up on my exercise tracker simply by doing yard work has helped my drop five pounds!
Of course, there were a lot of good things that simply appeared overnight too. Smiling as I almost literally watched the "Interrupted Ferns" develop (see that area of brown in the photo above?...hence, the name "interrupted")
and even a few things I really wasn't expecting....
And then the unexpected.
Exhausted beyond belief both mentally and physically, I hit the sheets one night and woke up with this the next morning...
It isn't the best selfie, but you get the idea, right?
Do YOU feel itchy now?
