It all started when I went to let the birds out for the morning. I stepped on the head of a railroad spike… barefoot.
It hurt. Upon examination, the foot moved and there was no swelling.
Looking back, I wandered somewhat aimlessly today. I made a wooden barrier and planted dozens of packs of wildflowers, and added water plants to a pond. I am hoping they grow fast so I can feed them to the ducks! I also made a mini canal for the duck water to fertilize my potential giant pumpkins. I counted 10 seedlings.
I was easily distracted by little things today. For instance, I recorded this jumping spider killing and eating an ichneumon wasp.
You can see more if you so desire at my YouTube channel. It is pretty easy to find. It is called “Brothers Campfire.” Silly, I know.
I was perhaps distracted by other little things as well.
Breaking the meaningless meandering, my friend Lance stopped by, and delivered three pickup trucks full of brush. I will be burning or composting it, but either way, it will be part of my yard.
I took the Thirteen-Year Veteran to two libraries. He needed a card for a different system, so I assisted. Then, he was off to private swimming lessons. Upon our return, I watched a sunset with Isabel, my daughter, and a rat named Claire.
After 0 steps for a whole day, (I dod not wear my Fitbit), I propped my feet up and relaxed, but there was one problem… One of them was swollen and hurt really bad. I didn’t notice until I stopped.

I hope your foot feels better. You got a lot done. I paid kid 10 bucks for spike like that for my wedding cake.
My foot feels a lot better ! Wait… what?
We got married on the train. I wanted a railroad spike on our wedding cake so a kid was selling them
Ut oh.. are you going to need a tetanus shot, or did you, rather, injure soft tissue in your foot? Hope it’s better tomorrow. Lovely sunset and watchers, and ew, bugs!
Soft tissue injury.
I feel pretty good this morning! Yes, icky bugs!
Hope your foot feels better soon!
Thank you Friend!
That’s a great photo of you, Isabel, and Claire.
What an amazing life…the blessings of Jacob. Please get a tetanus shot, just to be safe. Praying your foot feels better.
I wonder what your Fitbit reading would have been had you worn it? Take care of that foot!!
I would imagine a little over 20,000 steps. The foot has a bruise, but is pretty good! Thanks Nancy!
Oh tha rusty nail!!!!
yeah, big 🤕 ouch
I do hope you got a tetanus shot after stepping on this thing…
I hope I am up to date! 🙏
I just read this but have watched your Body Bologna in YT so I’m hoping your foot is completely healed already. Keep safe, my friend!
My foot is a bit sore, but A OK!
That’s great to know. Always be careful, my friend.
