It seems as of late I have been going to bed stressed and because of that I have not been sleeping well. It amazes me how much that changes if you are physically tired though. This week I find myself looking for an excuse to go to bed as soon as it's dark. There is no time for reading, or blogging. As soon as the sun sets, my self is ready for bed! I have been physically and emotionally challenged this week and I can't keep my eyes open much past 9 pm.
For the last few days I have sawed, hammered, lifted, beat, drilled, and dug my way through life here on the farm. I have gotten up early and as long as there has been no rain, I have been outdoors working my tail off. We are taking the raised beds that we put in last year out and replacing them with new beds. Of course that entails me making new beds to put down and then removing all of the dirt from the old bed, replacing the old bed with a new bed, and refilling it with dirt. We have done this over and over, and will continue to do it another 7 times before this project is complete.
Today's projects included finishing the construction of our 11 new raised beds as well as our neighbors 2 beds, and the demolition of a very large rabbit cage. (The cage is so large, that we had to use a Bobcat to move it into place....) After swinging a 12 lb. sledge hammer over my head several million times, I can tell you that the song "Girl On Fire" has a whole new meaning! I flat out hurt.
