I found a four leaf clover on the cool down walk after a recent run. I open with it, because as I sat down to make my blog post, a voice in my head said, “Good luck with that!”
As I worked today, I thought that after work, I could go for a run, mow the lawn, or take a walk, and write a blog post about whichever I picked. As I pondered my choices, I had to weigh which would wreak the least havoc on my back. Hey, I’m middle-aged and overweight: I get back pain. Returning to work after an extended break has caused some pain (YES, I am grateful I have a job! We have been through this! Sheesh!).
I apologize for complaining. The fact is, most of us at work have been having more than the usual aches and pains. I may philosophize about possible causes on Lame Post Friday (half bakedly of course) (ooh, here’s an autocorrect I’m glad I noticed: the computer put “nakedly” instead of “bakedly”). For today, I decided a gentle walk would be my best choice.
I got about two houses down the street when my knees started in. What the hell, me? I turned around, thinking I could at least take some pictures at my own house. First I crossed the street to take a picture of the lilac bush in front of a neighbor’s house.
Returning to my house, I took some shots of the front yard.
I am so into forget-me-nots this year, and it seems Mother Nature is as well. I see them everywhere.
We had two tulips, but I did not get any pictures when they were at their prettiest.
This is a kind of a preview of coming attractions, because the peonies and daisies are not blooming yet.
I see I am over 300 words, so I think I will save my back yard shots for a future post. I will try not to spend so much time blathering about my aches and pains!
