Workout

I can feel every muscle in my body; a vegetable patch really is a training device. You have to hack, kneel down and get up and do knee bends to reach the weeds, to collect the potato beetle grubs or to pluck the snow peas. If you don’t have the time for it, the amount of exercise in store for you is increasing. I have done some of it on Sunday, but some work is still remaining. At least, the snow peas where delicious.

To add some stretching exercises to this training program, I have been harvesting unripe walnuts for this year’s batch of black nuts.  Now the nuts are waiting to be pierced and I will do that tomorrow evening.

The weeds had been growing very high because a demanding project at my job absorbed most of my time over the last two weeks, including part of the week ends. Now the workload at the job is reducing, but in the meantime a lot of undone work has been piling up elsewhere, so I still don’t have much time.

Meanwhile, the statistics of my blogs are slowly approaching a flat line. However, the reanimation is on the way and the blogs are soon going to wake up from their comatose state. It might take a few more days but then I am going to inject some fresh jolts of energy. The batteries are currently being loaded for it…
