|Clearance rack blueberry bush|
I started running again. Before son #2 was born, I was a regular runner, nearly every morning. Once he came along I got out of the habit. A baby will do that to a household. He's 2 1/2 now though. I don't have an excuse, except that I was just being a useless slob. My short term goal is to run/walk every morning. Even weekends, even rainy days. I remember feeling so good when I was doing that a few years ago. It gave me more stamina through the day. It helped clear my sinuses. If kept me from packing on 20 extra lbs. Remind me again...... why did I stop? #FoRealDough
Garden is done, but we're still planting! I found some blackberry and blueberry bushes on a clearance rack at Lowes. $3 each. They actually looked pretty healthy too. We planted two of each and have our fingers crossed that we can keep them watered enough through the brutal South GA summer. We also planted 5 peach trees. These gems were volunteers that my Dad dug up out of his trash pile. He and Mom put up some peaches last year and low and behold the pits put on some pretty impressive trees right there in the trash pile. Nature is funny like that. We potted them in the spring and they had began to get root bound, so it was time to get them in the dirt.
I'd like to go camping with the oldest boy, but finding the time and fighting the heat/rain is making that difficult. I'd love to go to the river, but it's so low I'd be dragging the boat........ not to mention I'm not sure it's clean after a questionable fish kill. Guess I need to treat it like the running. I just need to step up and do it! In other news, I'm thinking about taking up photography. Auctioneering school is still on the bucket list, but taking awesome pictures seems to be a little more realistic goal right now.
Exercise and outdoor activities.........that will bring a man out of a funk don't you think?
Y'all take it easy,
