Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
Yesterday started our with a long-awaited dentist appointment.
8 AM to 12:30 PM were spent sitting in a chair getting two crowns and two fillings. I am glad they got it done, but I was worn out afterward.
When I returned home, I had to reset for an hour to not feel as rotten. My jaw and teeth hurt pretty bad.
There was work to be done here at Willow Manor so I reshaped the duck pond and leveled the garden area. While working, I found this stash of eighteen duck eggs so it looks like the epic breakfasts will continue.
My Beloved said not to overdo it as I had been to the dentist, but purchasing clothing for my new job was way tougher than any shoveling or yard work. Fortunately, I had a lot of assistance.
In between and during my chores, I walked seven miles. I am still practicing to meet my physical fitness goals, but time is escaping me no matter how hard I try to plan!
I have been dabbling in knife making as a hobby and picked up some aluminum bar stock for gaurds. I figure it will be a lit easier to file through than welding steel. I also tried my jand at a little leatherworking, but it has a lot to be desired, much like my knives!
The knife fits secure in the sheath and the waistline on a belt.
I gifted it to the Twelve Year Veteran of Life, and told him if it breaks or wears down, we will just make a better one.
That was yesterday. This is today. My back and teeth hurt so bad I couldn’t sleep past 4 AM. I overdid it.
Should have listened to my Beloved.
