After cleaning up my tools, I managed to take some ibuprofen and eat a few bites of potatoes and fresh garden squash, then sat on the opposite--still not stained!--deck and drink a glass of iced tea. I looked out at the green of the yard and the pasture, the green trees, feeling thankful for all the recent rain. I had taken Mom over to the bank in Newcastle (where they have had their account since we lived there when I was a child) and we marveled at how the two Graham lakes are full--back to capacity for the first time in years.
On my list this morning was another outside paint job, an outside plumbing repair, and more mowing in Rio's corral and the yard. Those tasks will not likely be completed now, though I may have to just pull on those rubber boots and dad's flannel barn coat with the hoodie and tackle that plumbing job anyway. Some things just can't wait.
