Today I started out mowing my own lawn for the first time in 2+ years. I had a toddler streaking behind me, random baby snakes that kept getting caught with the mower, earned some blisters, and my feet & hands were green… When I decided I wasn’t cut out for lawn mowing any more & quit.
Now I can appreciate a good workout….
So then I went into my big modern kitchen & started making zucchini bread from scratch (using veggies from my garden)… I’m pretty sure my right arm is now 10 times stronger than my left as I don’t currently own a mixer.
As I’m standing there reflecting at noon how my day has gone I found myself wondering how our ancestors got up & did this kind of manual labor every day!! And how lazy have we gotten? No wonder disease is so rampant amongst our culture today.
