This morning I slept until almost 5 AM. My back didn't wake me up after the ibuprofen wore off, it's better! I am so happy and relieved. I had this killer back ache, in the middle of my back, between my shoulder blades, it cramped up there, and hurt badly.
Anyway, I got dressed and was out the door at 6.05 AM for my walk. No, no running at the moment, I don't want to give my back an excuse to start hurting. The weather was still mild from yesterday, and it was pleasant walking. I was one of about a dozen walkers and one runner who make it around the pond this early.
On the way back, which is uphill and really gives me a work-out, I noticed that the air was like a swimming in a pond in the summer, the warm and cold spots one hits, and that come as surprises.
The leaves are almost all down, there are more ducks and Canadian honkers on the lake. The swan couple is still there as well.
Sunday my son-in-law and the two kids surprised me, by showing up with the super-powerful leaf blower and rakes, and raked and blew the leaves in my yard. Big help! And I was so happy.
Here is hoping my back is really on the mend, I hate being in such pain!
