Day 87, October 19, 2016 @10:29 pm
It’s later than I thought. The days are always full. It’s a good thing, I guess. I’m not languishing in idleness. It is still cloudy and grey as can be. Despite that, our solar panels are still making small electricity during part of the day. I’m seeing my glass half full. I’m making progress. My attitude is improving bit by bit. I am pleased that I am able to push past the greyness though it wraps itself around my head. It fits me like a hat.
It was not pleasant to work outside today. It was cool with the clouds pushing down. But once out, I had to do something. The carrots need to come out of the ground. The likelihood of warmer, drier weather seemed remote. No more waiting. The snow was gone from the raised beds. One of them was cleared and ready for planting. I had good success from seeding spinach and lettuce last fall. I had beautiful greens for eating early in spring. With some effort, I prepared the rows and seeded the bed with spinach, mesclun mix, romaine lettuce and radishes. Sheba was supervising.
I’m feeling stronger. My morning aerobics three times a week are paying off. It’s not easy. It makes life busier but it is building my core strength. I can feel the strength in my stance, in the handling of activities of daily living, in decreased stress and anxiety. I am not getting any faster or neater, though. I am not in a race. I don’t think Good Housekeeping is going to check up on me.
Another day complete. I am happy with the changes I am making. It’s mostly changing the way I see things. Time for bed.
