I Am As Stiff As An Old Boot Right Now

Spring, stiff, old boot,

Wonderful 90 minutes spent outside this afternoon doing some raking and cutting up some small branches. But now, I am paying the price for it as I am as stiff as an old boot, a very old boot. This morning I walked indoor 15 minutes twice, so I can truly say that I feel very happy for being so productive today. How was your first day of Spring spent?

It I chilly here. We voted in the Illinois primary with Molly along for the ride. Not sure for whom Molly voted. She considers voting a private matter.

@Corbin5 Deborah, that is great. I wonder if you will ever find out who Molly voted for.

I am sure Molly voted the perfect person. She is a smart one! Were there any dogs running? If so she may vote for the dog to show solidarity.

@relebann, Excuse my ignorance, but what is an "inspection sticker"?

Wasn't it too cold to work outside? Or did working make you warm?

@MALUSE It was cold but it is easier to work outside then. At the end I was getting pretty warm.

I had a long walk today, I only had to buy a few things at the grocery store, I went there by foot. The air is very cold, but it's sunny and pleasant.

@marlina I like the crisp air, it's so much better than walking under the summer sun.

@LadyDuck , Sometimes we have what I call " a day to bottle in". Those are the best, but unfortunately, they are very rare. My husband calls them "red letter day".

@marlina I never work in garden for more than 15 minutes at a time. Too risky for my back.

Tuesday it rained for a little bit. Then it cleared up. I took out two bags of trash to the dumpster. I talked my neighbor about the holly bushes he going to get rid of for me. And he is going to give some flowers to plant too.

@marlina he does my grass too. he says for me and my mother to pay him every month 40 dollars for the grass, but he's not pushy. he wants the holly bushes so that will be his payment for that work.

@JESSY3236 $40.00 per month for the grass is an awful good price.

I went out and starting digging up weeds in our front yard, the people we bought this house from evidently didn't believe in weed killers because this yard is full. I tried using Weed B Gone and the weeds laughed at me, now I will get something stronger to kill them as there are way too many to dig up. I won't have anything left out there if I have to dig them all up, might as well resod and start over.
