Have come to the realization this project is simply going to progress in fits and starts, often with absolutely no inkling which way I’m “progressing”. There are times when I can feel I am making progress (or lack thereof) as confirmed by that flat little Judge Numeric, who hides rodent-like under the sink in the bathroom.
Have also learned that how I feel is not a reliable indicator of said progress (or lack thereof). On some days – like today – when I expected the Scale Judge to weigh-in disapprovingly on my latest efforts, I am pleasantly surprised. Judge Numeric and my self-conscience, Judge O’Self are smiling most approvingly at my lower Earth density value (down 3 lbs since April 10).
My best guess is the awakening Spring – particularly the yard work that begs of me – has much to do with my slightly tighter belt cinch.
No shocker to anyone, who regularly visits, that I am just a tad OCD about how the outside of the house looks, particularly that lush green magic carpet ride of which I sometimes write of here. My anality over grassidity is a nagging impetus that requires quick attention … like so many other naggings in my life. Though it’s really just a stimulant – as is a warming sun and the smells of Spring – to get into motion and throw off the cobwebs of Winter.
And it gets me out of the house.
Besides I had a list of lawn projects and treatments and cleanup and general landscape …
Yes, Virginia, it can ALWAYS look better!
But enough about that in other posts.
