How about a dose of Vitamin D?

You know, the kind you get from the sun. Wednesday and Thursday were incredibly beautiful, with highs in the upper 60s and sunshine and blue skies. It was perfect for working in the yard, and I took advantage of it. I mowed, raked, shoveled, hauled dirt and rocks, and spent an inordinate amount of time cleaning. My reward? A fire in the fire pit at the end of the day whilst watching the sun sinking behind the trees. Physical work heals my mind and emotions and regenerates my body. After that, a little relaxation and contemplation of the sun amidst the trees heals anything not yet healed.

Today, however, was cloudy and overcast, with wind, so it felt colder than it really was. A flannel shirt was still sufficient for me since I was working. I spent this afternoon digging up the rest of the stretch of grass along the strip between the sidewalks, and found five more flagstones under the grass! I knew there was one, but did not remember there were 5, but they will come in handy as I finish up this strip. It will be a while, as rain is coming in tonight through Sunday. I think a break from the outdoor labor will be welcome and give me some time to work inside. Perhaps, I will still get that Christmas tree up yet.

    Ah, I did some of that outdoor work on our two good days here in Arkansas. Rain hit here Friday and it was a gloomy day of rest. So, the rain has headed your way.

    Sounds like you had very enjoyable days with that nice, warm weather. We had good weather on Wednesday and Thursday, too. It’s December! What a treat for us! Your side yard looks very nice. Good luck getting that tree up!
