in which our plucky heroine chooses to focus on what was accomplished rather than what still remains un-done...
in the middle of the night, yesterday...moved the iron multi-hook plant hanger "tree" into the middle of the far backyard, to have a place to hang the the trap, and set up the WHY* trap in the backyard; the instructions specify to do it at night or very early in the morning, since the last thing you want is to be holding a trap full of attractant when the insects are active. I am hoping that by setting a trap, I will reduce the likelihood of future stings by trapping the queen wasps as they awaken. At least that is the concept...
* W.H.Y. = Wasps, Hornets, and Yellowjackets
....and... more baby seedlings are sprouting in the salad table, the warm weather and cool nights seem to be doing this project some good.
In the interest of both less stress and more stamina, when I just missed the bus home from the copy shop late this afternoon, I decided it would be good to walk home; it is just over a mile, and I figured it might be temporally equal with waiting for the next bus... not quite, but it definitely upped my daily pedometer total. I am always seeking a balance between pushing self to improve, and not becoming too exhausted and in pain to function... it is tricky, but if I want my situation to be different, I need to do different things. Plus, as some may recall, two years ago I couldn't walk to the end of the block without crying from pain...
