Folks might have wondered a bit why my blog postings just sorta stopped in January. Normally postings get a bit spottier in the winter months since it's cold and dark and I'm on vacation and...well, I just don't wanna a lot of the time. But this particular break (basically from February until the start of August) has a more annoying reason.
Basically in March I was beginning to "tire" very easily, which was quite unexpected. I figured I hadn't been doing much exercising (I'm a slacker I know) so I stepped that up. It was clear that wasn't enough though; I still wasn't able to walk as far without running out of energy. For a guy like me that's a very strange situation, to be sure. Eventually a good friend of mine at work told me she was worried about me and nagged me into going to a doctor, which I did.
It's all very annoying but it's all been fixed and I'm back to normal. In fact I think I'm feeling even more better every day, which is remarkable. I know the docs are pretty danged amazed (words like "impossible" were used), but while they ponder their amazement I'm planning to just go ahead and get back to getting things done around Tanglewood.
I think I'll keep my Summer, 2017 list short this season due to the medical sidelining making me start so late--I want to go slow anyway and give my body time to recover properly. So giving it some thought I've got these on the agenda:
- Finish putting in the Big Door (that's sadly taken far too long);
- Install outside lights by the solar panels so I don't have to sweep off 6" of snow in the o'dark of the morning;
- Do some triage work on the road; it's gotten pretty bad in some sections and it looks like nobody else is gonna fix this stuff.
That's it. No more. Focusing on those things will be more than enough!
