The view from my perch on the mountain

Sick, lame and lazy

Today started out fine with beautiful weather and low pain levels. Then the madness struck THE BOSS and me simultaneously. We spent the day working on flower beds.


Now we’re both hobbling around moaning and groaning. My back is so bad I can barely walk WITH a cane! THE BOSS even had to help me get dressed when I got out of the shower which was an adventure in itself. We both have a nice dose of sunburn to add to the misery…….but it’s a good kind of pain, well earned and something nice to show for our efforts…..besides my ever growing collection of cuts, scrapes and bruises.

I should call Band-Aid and see if they need a spokesman…..or a crash test dummy. I easily qualify, either way.

Pictures of the project  to follow…..when I can shoot again.

Yeah, it’s that bad.

  4. If you can get into a tub, a nice hot epsom salt soak is great for sore muscles. Plus a liberal application of homeopathic arnica gels works great too! I always burn first and tan later. You can apply tea (yes, tea to your sunburn, and this helps it heal faster).

    Sure am sorry to hear that both you and Frankie are laid up from yard work.

  5. Good advice from your friend C.S. Miller Chip, you and Frankie fill the tub, or if you can’t leave it to Frankie,[ women have more stamina], pull it in front of the fire and have a good wallow.
