Many hands make light work

It was a pretty day here, sunny and just the right temperature. The Knitting and Handgun Appreciation Society teamed up on a project that let us get outside, get some exercise, and do some actual blood-pumping work. Tote that barge, lift that bale, push that broom, and where did I leave my latte?

So now my back aches, and I am mourning my inability to take NSAIDs (pharmacist's orders). Once you've spent some time with Aleve, Tylenol just doesn't provide the same thrill.

But our mission was completed. As with knitting, there is a wonderful sense of accomplishment when you see something physically transformed by the work of your own hands.

And I think I just might sleep pretty well tonight.
