It feels good to be tired

I can go on about being tired tonight and likely will, but am sure I feel nothing compared to Bubba, Rene & Nick. Today I went after a few housekeeping jobs that I don't do often enough. I took Windex to all the mirrors and windows inside the coach, I vacuumed and swept floors and dusted flat surfaces, I took out the trash, I picked up things and put things away, I walked Mijo at least 4 times and I scrubbed the kitchen trash can. Not a very pleasant job ~ hot water and Pine Sol on the inside, Formula 409 on the outside. It smells better than it has smelled in years. I bagged up a bunch of finished crochet projects that were piling up on the bookcase in the living room and put them in a cubbard. I still have lots of filing to do but that will wait till tomorrow as will dishes and laundry, the more typical household chores.

The gentlemen, however, accomplished a far greater and more laborious task today. In just over 8 hours they poured the entire sidewalk leading from the parking area to the pavilion. It was impressive. After 9 hours Rene and Nick were still giving it the final touches while Bubba called it a day and headed in and to the shower. I think I'll have to shake out his clothes before I throw them in the washer. With just a few breaks for food, drink and supply runs they accomplished a great deal today. I'll get out there tomorrow and snap come pics so you may admire their work as I am.

I have been sedentary for far too long. When I walk up the hill with Mijo it takes my breath. Some days I feel as if there is a basketball living under my ribs. I know its not gal bladder problems because they took that from me 20 years ago. I haven't put on any more weight and I haven't taken any off .... It simply seems to be migrating to my waste. It must be my age! ha ha ha

Enough fluff for now. More later .....
