Saturday we were supposed to have a bunch of people working with Jack and Bob to burn the brush so we can saw up the  big trees into firewood. So no one showed. When I got home Saturday afternoon, Big Jack and I went out  and cut brush to burn. I couldn't believe how out of shape I am! My hands are not strong so I had tp brace the clippers when I did cut through something thick.  So after an hour I had to give up and totter back to the house and rest. It pissed me off.  I used to be able to cut haul and burn brush all day. When I was 30, 40, 50... After sitting for an hour and drinking a bunch of ice water, I went back and worked more slowly for another hour.
I like doing that and I kept finding things I could use for bug making. One of the downed hickories had golden buds instead of the usual grey ones. Little golden bug feet...
I tried to get up at 6:30 this morning, at 7, and finally did at 8. Later when I tried my usual walk, my legs started hurting so much I had to go back. I am determined to get into better shape! This is ridiculous. Then I fell asleep three times during the day.
I did go down to the river with Little Jack and Austen, and sat on the dock while they caught minnows and the sun went down behind the trees. Jack took the minnows home where he has a fish tank.
It was a good day despite all the sleeping.
