By the time I got the shed cleared out to get to my tools and got my work area set up, my toe was throbbing. After padding and taping it, I had jammed it into a shoe. After an hour of hobbling around, it made itself known that it was very unhappy indeed.
I hadn't gone to the trouble though of spending all that time clearing things out and then setting up for nothing. So I soldiered on.
I no sooner laid the sawhorses in the yard than I saw my neighbor turning the corner on his lawnmower. Since he is good enough to cut it, I moved them out of the way.
I took a needed break after which it became clear that I could NOT put that shoe back on. Once out of the shoe, it actually did feel better. So, I walked on the back of the shoe the rest of the day. It was slower and required a little more caution, but it worked!
The mother was lecturing me the entire time but it was such a lovely day! How could I possibly not try to accomplish something? The weather is so fickle, I thought it best to get somewhere rather than nowhere. And, so here is where I got.
I finally gave in and called it quits. I swept the driveway (where the neighbor had thrown grass all over the place), cleaned up my mess, put everything away and then came in and ate. The mother made a pot of stew that was twice as good as it looked and it looked great!
Not exactly a stellar opening to this new season of "Pimp My Shed" but I guess it's better than nothing. We'll see if I can resume tomorrow!
