Who needs a gym workout??Come to my yard

Who the heck needs a gym workout when you have an overgrown and unattended yard??!  It rained a lot this weekend and that just fuels up the weeds, plants and trees in my yard.  I decided that I would spend an hour out in the yard and I ended up with quite the workout:

Arms….pulling weeds, branches, swinging the machete since I broke the garden big scissor thingy.  I hope I can pick up a pencil tomorrow, cuz they hurt.

legs & butt……squatting, bending, squatting, bending, and lunging at some points.

God is merciful tho….he gave me a much needed rainfall (minus lightning) to refresh me.  He knew I wouldn’t have lasted 20 minutes without that shower.  Felt so good to just be in the rain.

These are some of the branches that no longer live in my yard. 

some of my work!

Mango, 1 1/2 cups spinach, 1/4 cup OJ, 1/4 cup milk, agave nectar.
