this morning, yesterdays mess was still waiting for me this morning.. only now it's raining and my dirty mess from yesterday is now a muddy, mucky mess..

[messy work zone]

the fella brought me home a heaping truck box full of top soil last week.. i whittled away at it for a few days, but hardly made a dent.. so yesterday was a mostly sunny day, it was time to tackle the task.. i am using the dirt to fill in around the house.. the front for flowers and the rest to pack in with rocks to keep the skunks and raccoons and other critters from getting under the house and in to the chicken pen..

so close to being done, i tapped out.. my muscles already starting to seize up.. i came inside and made supper.. i was full of good intentions of getting back outside, finishing up and putting my mess away.. but after supper, my body betrayed me even further than tight muscles.. i had a panic attack.. [sigh] i felt it coming on, tried my damnedest to ward it off, but it didn't listen to reason.. so after getting thru that.. i couldn't talk my body or mind into doing anything but mouth breathing on the couch and falling into bed early..

just another day in the life of me.. sleep, reset.. rinse, repeat..

The mess will wait the body or mind which ever the case decided that it was time to be finished for the day :)

Dirty outdoor mess is the worst mess of all! I like the black & white approach and #3 tells the story best. I feel for your sore muscles, hope you can take a hot bath?

Just think of it in Oscar Wilde's terms - "Never put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after!"
