Stiff in the Morning!!
Scrappy and l are a little bit stiff …. l got up slightly later this morning, 7.35am to be precise and l was stiff and l don’t mean just that stiff, but l was that stiff but all over – so l shuffled out of bed in the usual zombie like fashion, limping because yesterday l managed to split a heel in the garden, tripped over the doughnut which is Scrappy’s bed … she didn’t awaken – she sleeps more these days, stumbled into the hallway and limped my way down the corridor to the kitchen where l could hear Suze making coffee and then as l turned the corner l was blinded by her SAD lamp which always reminds me of ‘do do do do from Close Encounters, never mind their blaring glaring light sequence and was instantly slammed back into the corridor darkness trying to recover from having my eyeballs seared out of my skull!
Good morning world!
The other reason l was reluctant to get out of bed this morning is that when l retired to bed last night aheam, this morning at 2.35am it was hammering it down with more rain!! So this morning laying in bed feeling stiff [make of that as you will], l was listening to the rains and my dog snoring at the foot of the bed … thinking … “What do l want to get up for to this grey horribleness? Why would anyone want to get up??”
But l got up and it wasn’t long before Suze left for work and as l helped her get things to the car – was greeted with this… front and back!
Raining so damn hard there are rivers of water cascading down the slopes, thank goodnesss we live on a hill!
Meanwhile – out in the back garden … that mulch we dug in yesterday will now be both dragged down by the monster worms as well as naturally seep into the grounds – so the nutrient process has started!
Joys, all this rain does is 1] remind me that soon madam la Scrappy will awaken and irrelevant to the hammering of raindrops she will want to be walked via the routine of the morning walk and then get frustrated that she is wet! 2] Remind me that l must get the back garden’s watering system sorted out!
In truth, l don’t ache as much as l thought l might this morning, the more l do the gardening the more my exercise routine is being worked – still exercising – l read that all we ‘sit down all day geeks’ need is the minimum of 150 minutes of exercise a week – well l am getting that – last week l was in the garden a total of 9 hours and each hour was involved with something strenuous – l think l am good. Now l just need to get some walking in and l am ready to rock roll and rumble!
Oh well, here we are two coffees later, one now awakened Scrappy [last 15 minutes], l need to shower and then dress up like a khaki version of the Michelin Man and get myself out into that very wet day and come back with the joys of springs in my steps! Maybe if l am lucky l can zig zag between the falling raindrops!!
Catch y’all later!
