The gate and time.

For today (Sunday):
We have had a lot of rain, showers and simply mists. I was able to get through the mess to re-install the gate on the lower driveway. That is the gate that upset our mail man. So I finally got around to it. I get tired much easier. I can remember knowing a few people who made it to their 80s; I thought they were warmed over dead folk.
Of course I know that my strength has been cut a good bit. Just the 3-4 hours I worked on the gate just sapped my strength. I say it too often and do nothing; I need to exercise/stretch my muscles or I will be a bedfast lunatic.
I was not born to sit and watch TV; it is not in my mental/physical make-up to ‘close shop.’ My mind needs to be able to think and solve small problems. I have some jobs that are MINE, and those I just play at, such as Re-arranging tools and the basement.
My present project is ‘looking into’ fixing up a small apartment in the basement. The first thing will be adding a bathroom.
I reset the clocks. Do I like it? NO! Why can’t we split the difference and change the time by a half hour and use it forever. LOL I WILL BE MORE CAREFUL NEXT YEAR, it is too late now, but I reset one clock that resets itself. So I was up an hour earlier... LOL
