A few nights ago Ellie woke up around 3 in the morning and came into my room. She'd been coughing and woke herself up. As she crawled into bed with me, she started mumbling about how mouse poop was magic. I asked her to explain.
Well, did you know that mouses fink their pee is juice and that their poop is meat? You don't even have to buy them any food. Can I get a mouse?
I really marvel at the way that girl's mind works, even when she's half asleep.
My neck is holding strong. I've been running twice this week and I've gone biking too. I'm having a little anxiety about riding, but then I always have this sensation at the beginning of the season. It is a strange, reckless feeling to be going so fast without being strapped into or onto anything.
I sometimes have a similar anxiety about running. I have a bum right ankle, and it will roll without any warning. It hurts for about 10 seconds and always takes me by surprise - just enough for a cuss word to escape when I suddenly find myself on the ground. After walking around on it for about 30 seconds, I'm fine and good to go. It should be no big deal, but mentally I cringe and find myself thinking that one of these times it's just going to break. And that would really hurt.
Note to self: stop borrowing trouble
I have worked in my yard each time the sun has shone lately. After three months of being mostly sedentary, it feels absolutely wonderful to be moving again. I hope never to take hard work, sweat, and the good kind of body aches for granted again. I have cleaned out the front and rear flower beds and mucked out the garden. This weekend is time to put the peas, romaine and spinach in. We put this yard in with the intent that it be no or low maintenance. Hah! Beauty always requires work, but is always worth it in the end.
Monday, I find out if the camera can come off life support. Fingers crossed.
Have a lovely weekend everyone! What are you doing to enjoy Spring?
