Because I am an idiot periodically and don’t always foresee the consequences of my actions, I sometimes have to pay the price. I love to feed the birds and bunnies that eagerly await my arrival.
One of my brothers was kind enough to make me a tiny red picnic table the perfect size for a visiting squirrel. Alas, I put bird seed instead of apple slices or some such on it. Now I have sunflowers and all manner of odd plants which have turned a portion of my backyard into the wild kingdom.
Yesterday I started the arduous task of taking a large load of old leaves and sprouted plants to the landfill. I thought I would never be able to lift that tarp into the car’s trunk. It took me umpteen tries before I was finally successful.
After I took it to the landfill, another feat of muscle not even vaguely like Popeye’s, I was soaking wet from head to foot. I stopped in the local grocery store, picked up some ice cream, and paid for it while apologizing for my filthy self.
After a shower and a considerable amount of ice cream, I concluded that I had to pace myself. So I am chilling today and doing lighter work. Weather permitting, I will try this again tomorrow.
