Friday and Counting

Friday morning I went downstairs and did something goofy to my husband. I do not even remember what it was. He looked at me and said something like, "You are definitely feeling better." Hehe. I was...about 90% better. Thank you to those who checked in on me and offered Richard help with Boy.

Since I felt well enough, Boy and I went grocery shopping to pick up all kinds of freebies and cheapies. By the way, if you have this past Sunday's paper, there is a coupon for $5 off of any two of certain brands of allergy meds. We got Benedryl Anti-Itch Sticks for the summer (bug bites) for FREE since they were only $2.38 each at WalMart. Oh, and Harris Teeter has Perdue chicken for B1G2 FREE until Tuesday. If they run out, you can get a rain check for later.

If you have been following my posts here, then you know that we are just two days from the restart of my exercise program, RevAbs, and I am feeling great antici-. (Only RHPS fans might get that.) Feel free to pray that I stay healthy. The workout for day one does not seem very hard when you look at it, but doing it is another story. I felt the burn in my muscles for several days afterward, and it was fantastic! I am very much looking forward to Monday's workout.

You may be wondering about my challenge to myself from Thursday. After going through the day, I realized that Bonnie's comment was right. It seems that these kind deeds come naturally to me, so it is difficult to consider anything "extra." However, I am reminded by Aesop that "No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted." I did offer a way to make a little extra money to a friend who is out of work, and that one needed some thought.

Today we plan to work on the yard. What a beautiful yard we used to have before we moved to the beach for a few years. Our hearts still break when we look at the condition in which the yard was returned to us when we came back. No worries, though. God is good, and His beauty grows again all around us again and again. Working in the yard will be good for both my physical fitness and my mental fitness. Hmm...maybe even my spiritual fitness.

  1. Looking at this post from the perspective of having been there for the beginning of the yard work, I can say that the yard will be back in shape in time for the "big day". Do not despair!
