    I have to admit I spent the last 45 minutes mowing part of my yard. (Big Yard) And I am having the time of my life. I am really loving it! I never would have thought that mowing my lawn would make me so happy but man it is
    Happy Birthday!

    And yeah, you're only as old as you feel, so glad you're enjoying mowing the lawn! I've also found it strangely pleasant, in the past!

    Today is going to be a good day. I have spent the last week and a half redoing the flooring in my house and am now done. I am over the effects of my second shot. My aunt is going to be out of the house today. So I am going to have a great day of comics, walking and writing. I have not been able to do any writing for a couple of weeks. Am looking forward to it. So it is going to be a great day!

    We did our flooring too but I'm not a handy person so we had to get professionals to do it. Damn thing is expensive as hell.

    It is amazing how something as simple as Yard Work can make a person feel better. Two months ago on my birthday I bought a mower from my neighbor. I have been mowing my lawn once a week (weather permitted). I have also this week started on the massive weed problem. I have chest high weed pretty much around the entire side of my house and back. 4 years of not doing it. My neighbor also gave me a nice outside glass table and some chair. Had to do some major cleaning ion them but they are nice. I have been sitting outside in the mornings with my coffee and getting set for the day.

    Doing the yard gets me out of my room and away from being lazy with comics and video games. I am getting exercise and sun. And I feel really good taking charge of my yard and making it look nice for once.

    I am also doing something rare. I am leaving the house with my dad and aunt and having a nice lunch and shopping outing for my dad since he hasnt been out of the house but twice in a year and a half and that was just for docotrs. it is going to be a great day

    That's so cool. Myself, I'd rather let an interrogator remove my toenails than do yardwork (childhood thing). I mention that to say, even tho it's not my thing, I'm glad that it fulfills you.

    While I can't relate specifically to yard work, I do the same with housework on occasion (not the regular upkeep, but the deep dive). When the mood hits it feels good and then after there's the satisfaction of knowing things are in order once again (until they fall out again, but then get to put them back in a row).
