A glorious day in the garden. About half of the paths are done.

It was so beautiful today I cannot put it into words. It must have been close to 15 in the yard next door. I dressed in layers and ended up in my tshirt.

What made it so glorious besides the heat and sun? Two weeks ago I was bending way over and weeding and popped my rib. It is a loud pop where the bottom rib joins with the cartilage part of the rib. POP and then excruciating pain. I don't know what actually happened from a medical perspective....but I felt like I'd broken it. It was so painful I was actually thinking 'If it doesn't get better soon, I'm going to ask if I can have the rib removed'. That kind of pain. 

So that I could go out and get some work done was the best feeling. I took it slow and easy. I raked through the mulch very slowly and made some paths. The paths took about three, maybe four hours?

Erin, am so sorry to read about your rib. Have never heard of such a thing. Glad you are on the mend. Paths look great!!

Thank you Brenda!! Feeling pretty good today. My legs are a bit sore from all the bending over, but what a glorious feeling.

glad to hear you are on the mend. Chris has had the same injury - it is painful!
