Just What the Doctor Ordered

So, I've been in a little bit of a funk the past few days.

I don't know if it's been because hubby has been out of town all week, and he'll only be home a couple of days before he leaves for another week. Or maybe it's been because of the lingering cold weather, or the constant headache.

All I know is I haven't been motivated to do anything. Until yesterday.

I went out to the back yard, just to move the bird feeders. It seems our beagle enjoys the taste of birdseed as much as the birds. Anything that just "happened" to hit the ground, she quickly snarfed up. The nuts and berries in the seed just aren't a part of the strict diet we have her on. So I had to move the feeders outside of her fenced area.

I get easily distracted, so moving the feeders turned into cleaning up the many piles of "proof of dog". While I was at it, I decided to rake the leaves out of one of the flower beds in that area. Four hours later, I had raked leaves and sticks out of half the back yard, and cut down two big mounds of dead zebra grass. I was just getting warmed up, but my hands had already produced blisters, so I had to stop.

I went to bed last night totally exhausted, but happy. It felt so good to be outside. I think the hard work, and the sunshine were just what the doctor would have ordered. I would be out laying mulch and cleaning more flower beds today, but we're off to the track.

Young son hasn't been able to ride since his accident two weeks ago, but it's a big race this weekend. We're headed to Illinois for practice today. I'm gonna soak up the sun while he rides!

Thanks for stopping by, hope the sun's shining wherever you are today!


  1. HI Cindy, I agree the sun felt so good yesterday even though it was only 60 degrees here and we are to have another warm day today. Good luck to your son if he races. My grandsons have started getting their horses ready for the summer of showing. I am looking forward to going to watch them ride. I even get to see their dad ride once and awhile. Enjoy your sun. I would like to work in my yard, but don't seem to have enough time here lately. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend

  2. Good morning Shirley! Looks like we've got another perfect day today, if you don't mind the wind. Going to be close to 70, so I'm going to try to get back out to the yard. My tulips are finally coming out of the ground, and my lilac tree is budding, I love this time of year! Have a great weekend.

  3. Yes sometimes sunshine is exactly what the doc orders. have a good weekend
