No pain No gain

Well that one (No Pain, No Gain) is holding true. I have pain and I see gain. Yep the battle with mother nature has begun again. Well battle is the wrong word. I love nature. But I do enjoy a good-looking yard and decks. Worked outside most of the day. Grilled out some sausages and salmon for dinner and now settling in for the hoop games.

Life is good today. Temps in the low 70’s with a breeze after a long winter is cause for a pause. Well, I didn’t just want to sit around all day and a large mulch delivery is coming next weekend so I had to de-leaf and de-branch all the areas getting mulch. The weeds got too much of a head start but we did battle with them today also.

Good thing it’s supposed to rain this evening and tomorrow morning. The body needs a day of rest. It’s kind of a double edge sword. I know I need the exercise and activity. But the body isn’t as strong as it once was. I did pretty good in moderating today and its a good thing I did because I’d be horizontal now if I wasn’t. Right now I’m just a basket of minor aches and pains.


Random Thoughts of the Day

It’s good to step away from the computers and smartphones and tv’s.

Thinking of my parents today. I should go pay my respects soon.

I’m glad I have friends who are about having fun.

I love a little brown sugar over salmon and of course on the grill.

Many brackets are going boom. Nothing but net. I love that phrase.

I’ve got to remember to tell my son to bring his basketball pump the next time down.

I’m going to get back to reading blogs actively again this week. And hopefully some fresh shooting.

Amazing college basketball games tonight.

I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
