What a difference a day makes!
Today I took my dog for a 45-minute walk that took an hour due to grass eating, dog greeting, water play and babying my own knee today. Killing that extra bit of time, the traffic was nonexistent when I got back on the road. I am also having some vague recollections about some kind of warning for this construction, though, I still think it's ludicrous that they didn't start last week.
Then I got on my bike and rode to the library to do some writing. I stopped off at the Hippie Grocery Store and bought a tincture (Maca Magic) to help get my cranky-butt in line with reality. I don't know if it will work. The reviews are good and I'm willing to try. In fact it better work because it was expensive, though the woman at the register says they have a 100% guaranty on their products.
When I rode home, I had three library books and my laptop in a backpack as I climbed our steep hill to our lovely home. I'm pooped. I took the tincture with some water, made some coffee and I sort of feel like I can kick the world's ass if I had to. Yay me!
And our Crepe Myrtle is starting to bud.
