My contemplation is this: my friends are totally and truly awesome; this is currently having a significant effect on my thinking about my job and career. I love my family - shocking, I know, but I probably don't say it often enough. Sitting out on a sunny/shady porch in the warm afternoon reading a book and watching the children play is one of the finest pleasures I've ever known.
Sunday I was surprised to get whacked with the sad bat. Just feeling blah and down for no reason. Maybe it's the lack of progress on my computer issues, maybe not. I decided that sitting around feeling sorry for myself wasn't going to help things so I decided to try some sunshine and getting stuff done. I took the ACs out of the kids' windows and hauled them down to the shed. Then I decided that the grass really did need another mowing and while I was doing that I decided I needed to move some logs and start the "tear out the old rotted fence" project.
90 minutes later I had shorter lawn grass, less tree and blackberry vine clutter, and the two most visible sections of the fence were gone. I worked up a decent sweat but whatever was weighing down my mood it wasn't amenable to good air and honest labor. Oh and I probably did something to my back. I'm not surprised and it's not terribly bad - Vitamin I to the rescue.
Planning on Diesel tomorrow.
