a few days ago i posted about being a wee bit “pissy” about stuff in life. usually [and thankfully] when i’m get this way it’s not that terribly long that it lasts and i can get back to normal. not that i’m that terribly normal. yesterday after a great staff meeting with our youth ministry and anchor staff and some chinese buffet, i was able to grab my chainsaw and break a sweat out in the woods. today before and after a “surprise” baby shower for us by the church staff i was also able to get out and cut away.
we’re working on creating a community garden behind church on some of the 14 acres of land we have. so, my trusty stihl in hand i got to work outside cutting down some trees, cutting logs, trimming back branches and clearing out undergrowth. i love spring break weeks where i can just get out and be physical and not have to think about much other than the job at hand.
it’s therapy with wood chips, splinters and two-stroke exhaust! sweetness…
