The simple joys of life.

Apr 26, 2011

We finally got enough of a break from the rain that I could cut my lawn tonight. Well.. okay.. The ground was really too wet and the mower's wheels left some muddy ruts.

But the sun was out and the temperature was warm enough to allow me to wear a sleeveless tee shirt.

And I actually enjoyed mowing my lawn. 

It wasn't a chore like it was a couple of years ago when every step brought pain in my feet, my ankles and my knees.

I didn't break out into a sweat.

I finished the job in less than an hour, instead of taking two hours like it did when I weighed more than 500 pounds.

And when I was done.. my wife had me take out the trash. 

Life is pretty good, wouldn't you say?
