A few weeks ago, Ryan built a frame for our vines to climb. I saw a cucumber plant poking its head out this morning, so hopefully the work wasn't for naught. But I only posted this picture because a blog post without photos is boring. People like pictures, people!
I haven't been doing any physical labor like that, but I certainly feel like it. I'm working on a top secret writing project, and it is exhausting. Over 10,000 words in two days. I can hear some of my former grad school colleagues scoffing because that's not even a tiny master's thesis worth of content, but hell, I'm not Chris Hitchens who could write an eloquent, publishable 100 page masterpiece in a matter of minutes, all while carrying on a surprisingly insightful conversation about grasshopper mutilation with the Pope. And I'm rusty from doing a year of short blog posts that only require a shot of whiskey and a sick imagination.
I still have a lot more to go. What can I do to improve my stamina? Watch Biggest Loser, of course! Yup, that's the ticket.
