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.
