    When I woke up this morning I told my wife I felt better than I have for over a month. Most of you know some of the struggles we've had over this past month. Anyway, first off a good breakfast. Later a great dinner and the amazing thing is that the food tasted good for a change. Supper comes later.

    The best part is that I spent most of the day outdoors until around 4:30. Until today I've usually had to lay down for several hours more than once; usually about 3 times per day. So you can imagine how great it was today as I have not laid down even once since getting up this morning.

    I won't say that I didn't tire because I did. And I won't say I did a lot of work because I didn't, but I did have fun doing what I did. Even went back near the creek to rescue the sawbuck. Interesting with all the water we got this week. So even though I do not like working on Sunday, today was an exception and I thought it might be good to take advantage.

    Anyway, just to let my friends know we think we can safely say I am on the mend, finally.

    EDIT: We also hit 68 degrees today!

    Our rainy drizzly day turned into a semi-sunny day and Campinspecter is going out to check to see if he can mow the lawn.

    Great news Backwoods Savage about being able to get out and get moving all day. Nothing like spending the day outdoors if the weather is nice. Hope there weren't too many bugs to bother you.

    Nice to hear Dennis. Don't overdo it.
    We had similar weather/temps today, so I've been outside a good portion of the day too.

    A nice day outdoors will help a lot of ailments...both physical and mental. Spring brings hope :)
    Glad you are feeling better...don't over do it

    This is great news Dennis!! A great day indeed! ! :)

    You and Judy have, and will continue to be in my prayers.

    I hope that you hit the bottom of your curve and you are on the upswing. Everything is cyclical. You have been down and now it's time to come up! ! :thumbs:

    It should be about 2 more weeks before bugs start bugging us here. Usually the last week in April. Mosquitoes usually come out around mid-May. Which reminds me I have to contact our county because I am the local guy for our township to distribute skeeter treatment.

    Today was not quite as nice as yesterday but still a decent day. The sun is finally out now but a bit breezy and not as warm as yesterday. Did not get much done today as the energy level just was not there. Laid down only once though. Got the splitter motor running and also one of the roto tillers. Wife is out for a walk right now.

    Do what you can and be thankful for it. Fighting low energy or :heidi: on yourself for what did not get done will not help and makes it's own new problems. Hang in there friend :)
