Uninspired, the redux

Again with the uninspired ... nothing's happening except hard physical labor, how boring is that?

After my walk yesterday (five miles, 88 minutes, yeah me!) I whacked some weeds and trimmed a huge limb off a dogwood tree. I hope I didn't do anything to kill the tree, but it was going to kill me every time I mowed under it and, frankly, as beautiful as dogwoods are I have this primal urge to live.

I took the limb off with a handsaw, we don't have a chainsaw. The chainsaw would have cut a good, oh, 45 minutes off the task. Zip, zip and you're done. Handsaw? Not so much.

I also trimmed three huge ugly shrubbery things that were buried under a mountain of snow for about two months this winter. They were quite misshapen but less than a day after their haircut, they're looking much better.

After I did all that outside work, I got my own hair cut and then fixed a delicious cream/goat cheese/mushroom sauce for pork medallions. Not low-calorie, but so delicious and it used ingredients that were needing to be used or tossed. I almost always opt for "use."

See? I wasn't lying. Uninspired, Day Two.

Just remember that completely uninspired does not mean completely uninspiring to us, your readers!

Just reading your blog the last 2 days makes me want to be outside doing things - walking, gardening, etc! In fact, it inspired me to go out to my patio and water the plant I bought this weekend.

Considering I bought it and watered it on Sunday and I was advised by the folks I bought it from that I "just" need to water it every day...well, it's hard to say it if will survive my care.

You make me wish I had a least for as long as I'm reading your blog...then when I'm home, I'm glad I don't have to dig in a garden or mow the grass - that's why I chose townhome living!

So don't worry about feeling're still inspiring to others!
