Alive Again

Monday, April 19, 2021

Ooof this is a rough road I am on. I let myself get way too sedentary. I was happy to sit around not doing much of anything just living la Vida couch potato. Well, guess what potato boy time to pay the piper.

The past few days I have been out in the sunshine tearing apart my lawn equipment e.g. push mower, riding mower, chainsaw, and weedeater. I changed the oil, filters, cleaned them with a pressure washer re-assembled them, sharpened blades, chains, lubricated the moving parts, aired up tires, replaced the line on the weed eater, then put them all back together. It felt awesome. I started around 0900 (9 a.m.) and didn't quit until after 1800 (6 p.m.). It has been so long since I felt so invigorated. However today I must take off because I have overdone it and my back, knees, and hands hurt badly. But it's OK. I am beginning to feel alive again.

    I did a lot of yardwork this weekend and I felt really good about moving around in the sunshine. I am glad you got your equipment taken care of.
