A2 Hosting still has not fixed the Database after their servers failed AGAIN. A2 Hosting is the WORST!
Because of this, new posts are currently missing and I can only HOPE they eventually recover the table they didn't restore after their latest failure.

NOT feeling strong.

This time last year I was finishing up building a shed/workshop, which included a whole lot of things that I couldn't actually do without creative physics on my side.  However, there was quite a bit that was just total brute force.  Like digging this rock-filled gravel/dirt out of the foundation area.

And at the end of all that... I was worn down to a frazzle, but I remember feeling strong.

This summer I painted the house for most of the summer... and recently I hauled a big pile of sand, moved the porch swing, repaired and added a coat of varnish to the privacy side of the "grill wall", cooked the worlds tiniest turkey, installed security cameras around the house twice, and pulled up the rest of the patio bricks in the last weeks, but... I do not feel strong


Today that hit home hard.  I went out to dig up the area that a hot-tub had been, to get it closer to level for the re-laying of the patio bricks.  I got about a foot wide strip done and was already shaking with weakness.  The strength just isn't there... even a little.


As with most projects, this one will take quite a bit longer that I had hoped, but at this rate, it is going to take a really long time.

My dear friend, I wonder why you are so weak, after all you have only completed more huge projects than a normal person would have completed in two summers or three. LOL
That little turkey was tender I bet!!
Take a rest have a turkey sandwich and a large glass of wine,
have a glass for me too as I would really love one.
