Today was the first time in more than a year that I was able to dash up and down the hill to the top garden, pushing a wheelbarrow, carrying stuff, without getting all winded, and without my right hip asking for mercy.
I even dug a hole for a post for raspberry support and my right hip let me!
I dug away the sod that made it impossible to open the garden gate far enough to let the wheelbarrow through. Last year the prospect was just too daunting. It took 10 minutes at most.
Wooho, I am drunk with possibilities! Now we'd better not start taking on new projects just yet. Jupiter is in Taurus almost exactly on my Ascendant. Sun almost there. Exactly the kind of transit to encourage over-extending oneself. If I still feel this great in a few weeks we will seriously consider chickens again.
Meanwhile it is full spring here, we had 2 beautiful days in a row and are expecting more, and whatever the future brings, these days have been well and truly plucked.
