What A Day

Used my rescue inhaler THREE times at work.  Could feel the veins in my neck struggling.

But the two classes at work were extra-ordinary.  Morning class--all the seats occupied and we had a great learning experience.  Everyone ready to grow vegetables.  I walked up to the  area by the cash register and talked with people etc. after class.   I haven't that sort of wonder-filled teaching experience in many years.

Lunch was the container of chopped salad I made before breakfast.  Apple, carrots, celery, radishes, walnuts and dried cranberries.  Trader Joe's Muscat-Orange vinegar with olive oil.  Delicious.

Afternoon class at 2pm--only three but we got into a great discussion on raised bed construction, size etc.  They learned and I learned.

And then, I was out of energy and managed to pack my handouts, clear the table of exhibits and get my leftover salad, my bag and punch out my timecard.  I was exhausted.

Really and truly unfit to be working any longer.  At least at the greenhouse.  I hoped to be able to make it across the yard, up the stairs and into the car to drive home.  And finally, at home, I drifted to the couch and crumpled.

A good hot shower and my pajamas and I watched Sense and Sensibility and am now going to bed.

Joanne, I'm confused, I thought you said you were done at the greenhouse, no more work there. I must have misunderstood. Sounds like it's getting to be too much for you,do take care! Hope you are rested today.

I am retired, Annie. I was just there to teach a class on vegetable gardening. And for the foreseeable future days--I will be working at home in my own garden-- And I did rest today.
