A lovely visit

I took my wracked back out to Wilderstead yesterday afternoon. I got out there just before 5:00. I noticed a lot of sycamore saplings shooting up in draining ditches. "I need to get after those," I thought, so I got out the nippers and the bow saw and had at them. After half an hour or forty-five minutes of trimming and pulling, I looked at my work and realized that my back didn't hurt.

As soon as I set foot in the holler, my back significantly improved. My muscles weren't all tight across my neck and shoulders, either. I spent a quiet evening banging away on my book. Chapter Three had me stymied, so I roughed out a different chapter. Making progress.

Today, I took my tractor out for a spin, just to keep the battery charged. Noticed that my redneck mousetrap had managed to eliminate a rodent -- the first I've seen dead in years of setting snap traps and laying out poison. Yay!

Life is good. Took these pictures this morning.
