My hip, leg and back was in such pain yesterday that walking was a struggle. Yet I was determined to cut the back yard with the push mower so charged the battery in preparation. Meanwhile I sat with a heating pad curved at the left hip area in hopes of diminishing pain.
After 5 hours of charging the battery I limped outside and tried the electric starter for the gas operated push mower but it wouldn't start. Attempted that 3 times plus a few pulls of the cord and still wouldn't turn over. Plugged the battery back in for half hour more ~ same thing. Charged battery another full hour and the damn mower still wouldn't start. Guess an unexplained force was telling me I wasn't meant to cut grass yesterday. And today it is supposed to rain.
Had a haircut and other things to do this morning and plugged in the charger for the mower battery before I left, came home and ate lunch. After those additional 3 hours of charging was able to cut the grass. Score!!!!!!!
The Comstock rug has been tucked away for the last several days. Chose to emotionally free myself from the pressure and decided to push forward on Mother with Fishbowl. This is what I accomplished during these last few days. I'll tuck it away for now until I muster enough courage to work on the fishbowl. The curtain in the photo had a non-descript design but tried to make the otherwise blasé background a little interesting by doing squiggles.
