No rest for the weary

The rest of this week being very busy and with rain coming, I decided Sunday night to scoot over to Wilderstead to do some serious work today. I had a delightful evening in my cabin, as usual, and got up to a chilly but clear day this morning just before 8:00. I was hard at it by 9:00.

Some joker had dumped a huge amount of junk on the hillside above my cabin, where it resided amongst serious thornbushes. Somebody apparently cleaned out a trailer or shack and the last load just went over my fence. This was in addition to the accumulation of beer bottles, old tires, and God knows what-all. It took me three hours to get the most of it cleaned up. I loaded my truck full of trash and went looking for somewhere legal to dump it in Rising Sun. After returning to the holler, I spent another hour loading my truck with old tires and junk, which I brought back home to get rid of.

I'm pooped. As well as scratched up.

But it was a nice day to be working outside. Truly lovely.

Tomorrow, I've got my annual physical, plus I just found out I have a parishioner's baby in Riley Hospital, Indianapolis -- and Sassy needs to go to the vet and get some more medicine. So it's a good thing I've got my chores done for this week.
