Spent most of the afternoon out gardening... and by 'gardening' I mean digging up part of the yard, shovel by shovel, separating out the usable plants from the stupid viney thing that infested the yard in the last..... however long it's been since the boy stopped doing anything but mowing it.
Between digging out those chunks of joy and the stumps that were left by the ill-planned 'garden crew' of the roommate and her friend last year, I've had quite a workout the last couple days. But... the bright side is that the strawberries and first round of lettuce should be good to plant tomorrow. I'm so excited! Then I need to continue work on the side yard, digging out the aforementioned vines and stumps and the dandelions that have gotten pretty thick before I reseed grass in there. I'm hoping, some day, to have a lovely yoga/dance garden. I think it's possible, it's just going to be a lot of work to get there.
Stayed mostly on track today.. had a big bowl of ice cream, but the yard work also had me at over 2k calories burned today. I felt like I needed a few more calories to keep my system going and it was a long afternoon.
But now it's time for some sleep. See you tomorrow, Sparkland!
