Feeling my power today is connected to clearing brush and clearing a fence line that was smothered in everything from honeysuckle to possum grapevines to poison ivy. Actually I didn't realize that poison ivy had invaded the thick brush I was tackling until it was too late, so I'm banking on my history of not reacting to it rather than panicking that I'll be covered in oozing and itchy breakouts later this week. Stay tuned.
Anyway, armed only with my clippers and rather dull saw, I took out probably 30' of jumbled up vines and briars. My only brush wounds consist of a long, ugly scratch on both legs My arms and back might remind me of today's work tomorrow, but for now, I feel strong!
There's nothing better than breaking a good sweat while working outdoors. I am tired, but the exhaustion feels good, much better than fatigue from things like work related issues. Needless to say, I'm ready for summer break...There's light at the end of the tunnel, thank goodness!!
