Today has been a day to putter around the house and work in the garden. I started out early this morning, even before doing my treatments, which was a nice change in schedule. Usually I don't allow myself to do anything until after they are done, so it was a treat to be able to head right out into the garden and attack all the weeds that have sprouted in the last couple weeks. After a couple solid hours of work I had finished clearing one bed out back and was ready for some breakfast and then my treatments.
Joe and I took a long walk down by the beach, all the way to Red Rock park and back, which was a stretch for me since I haven't been able to exercise in a couple weeks due to the flu. No more slacking, time to get back to it! The walk was tiring, but it was a good kind of tired. I did a bit more work outside and then sat down to appreciate my handiwork. It's so nice to look around and see the results of your labor! I get a lot of satisfaction from outdoor work.
So I'm left with a nice, contented, peaceful feeling this Sunday night. It's been a lovely weekend, a perfect balance of socialization and solitude, relaxation and work. I don't think it gets much better than this.
