The greatest good fortune
Missed a couple of days there. Blast!
I'm hitting stride on the great south unit cross-fencing project.
Hitting stride is the real key. I'm actually able to turn in full days of useful work. I'm not exactly as fit as I'd like to be yet, but I'm getting there. And the work is going great.
Oh, don't misunderstand. The miserable aspects of fencing are still plenty miserable. But the trade balance is great. I'm getting more fit and the fence is getting more done. I'm weary, achy, sore and wobbly by 5 p.m., but I have accomplishments behind me and a great night's sleep to look forward to.
In a goofy way this fence work is a passion. Yeah, there's misery, but I get to be outside with boots on the ground. Every day I spend out there increases my knowledge and understanding of the ecosystem and allows me to be better at what I do. I get to see and do things that most people don't get to do. I am blessed.
Speaking of blessed...
