I got to spend a little while yesterday using a new brush cutter/weed eater, and today, I’m so sore I can barely stand it. For one, this cutter is at least twice as heavy as my other one, but also, it’ll take me a couple of weeks to work myself back into decent shape. The crunch time of the semester doesn’t lend itself to high levels of physical activity, so I’ll have to readjust to working outdoors. I love the exercise, especially after the soreness works itself out, and hopefully by the end of this summer, my body will be in pretty good condition.
I also hope to make some major progress on the property this summer. There’s a lot to do, and it will take a tremendous amount of effort, but I feel up to the task. Each day gluten free, I feel a little closer to my former self. My left hand still gives me a few problems, especially with typing, and I’m still a little clumsy, but other than that, I’m feeling stronger and healthier than I have in quite a while, so while my health is on the upswing, I’m going to get the farm producing. Keep an eye out for pictures of the progress.
Since it’s raining today, I’ll probably spend the day indoors cleaning and organizing my place. I have a lot of work to do to have it ready for the boys in June, and I can’t write there if it’s too disorderly. My goal is to dive back into book four tonight, so the space has to be clean to make that happen. Book four is my number one priority for this summer, so I have to roll up my sleeves and get to it. The story has been gnawing at me for some time, and there are so many wonderful scenes to write. If the book comes together the way I envision it, it’s going to be a wild ride. Please, stay tuned.
