My health has not been the best these last few years. I havent had the energy to do the things I use to. I had my thyriod gland shut down and before it was diagnosed I swelled up like a tick. Now I'm on synthriod and under control. Before that it was stroke level high blood pressure. Pills for that and I'm doing good. Not too long ago the Doc says I'm borderline diabetic and my bad cholesterol is up. What the feck else can go wrong?
So instead of getting on one more damn pill I decided to try to live better. Eat right, quit smoking, exercise. I thought I was doing pretty good till I really took an honest look at my lifestyle. Now that I'm doing it right for the last 3 weeks I can really see and feel a marked improvment.
So being all full of energy I decided to hike down to the river. I had forgotten how great being there felt. We had an ice storm 2 years ago and alot of trees were down, so I got to try out my new Kukri. It works great. Cleared a half mile trail down to the river.
Just being out there where I spent alot of time in my early twenties was awesome. I didnt realize what I had been missing.
Heres a coupla pics of my church.
And 1 of a pottery sherd from the old Niloak pottery plant that closed down in the 30's. They made alot of artsy pottery that is very collectible, and regular use stuff which I find quite a few peices of that have washed down the creek towards the river.
