Oh, I am gonna hurt tomorrow.
This morning I got up bright and early to go over to my folks' place and work on my raised beds. They looked pretty silly sitting there with no dirt in them. So I moved enough dirt today to fill 5.5 of the 10 beds we built. The beds are 4'x8' and 10" deep.
I have no idea how many feet of dirt that is that I just hauled, but tomorrow I will be able to tell you how many Tylenol it takes to get me out of bed! LOL
I would have kept on going, but when it started to SNOW on me, I decided I had had enough.
While shovelling, I kept thinking about how I needed to be conscious of what I was doing and be totally present in the moment. You know what? I didn't want to be conscious of every muscle as it protested the demands I was putting on it. I didn't want to be aware of the wind freezing the sweat on my back. I didn't want to be aware of the blisters quickly rising on my hands. So I resolutely turned my mind to fantasizing about how wonderful things will be in the spring when I am planting my fabulous veggies started from seed all by my self. Later, I will try to be aware of myself when I am doing something a little more pleasant. *smile*
