I was suppose to be prepping to paint today. I have gotten 3 sides of my mobile home prepped and today I was to finish the 4th side but I think I ran out of steam. Yesterday I was up and down the ladder so much and have been using muscles I haven’t used in years and I am feeling it. I use to paint houses for a living so you would think piece of cake right? . A little slower but still haven’t lost the skills. I am only 4 ft 11 in tall so I really use those ladders lol. So today I got the tools out and put the ladder up and started without my usual enthusiasm . So my neighbor Korie came over and asked did I want to go berry picking and I said “sure do”. I put the ladder down, put the dogs in the house and went berry picking. Blackberries and Raspberries um mm. Midnight also loves to share the berries with me. Korie and I are going to transplant some of the berry bushes into our yards in the fall.
It is a bit of a hike to go get the berries so I used some different muscles which are in better shape because I have been walking a lot. When we got back I pick a onion out of my garden. First onions I ever grew and first homegrown onion I ever ate . Store bought will never be the same now lol. I also picked some cucumber to eat. No pictures of them because they were eaten. I made my lunch and sat out in the sun with my dogs and thought I was going to read my book but fell asleep outside instead. I woke up and Midnight was sound asleep in the chair next to me and BabyGirl was asleep next to my chair. What a great nap! I didn’t get done what I wanted to but my body was telling me it needed a break. I have learned to listen to my body. Midnight and me still have some berries for snack. BabyGirl only likes oranges and pears so she has to wait until the pears ripen and I buy some oranges!
