Today was the day…
That was super varied. We woke up early and with the wind just fresh, we decided we’d try a swim. We got there early (around 7am) and with the sun shining, I took to the waves. It was like a washing machine. So many things go through my mind when I’m in the water. I was comparing the trials of life to waves – sometimes they are little and non-threatening. Other times, they are massive and dump you mercilessly into themselves. The sea was choppy and it was a bobbing in the waves kind of day. I did manage some water ‘sprinting’ which I’ve never done before – literally running as fast as my watery feet would carry me. it was great exercise. After 2km, I got out. The change rooms had not yet been opened so to get changed meant going behind the water tanks and Mike holding a towel to preserve my dignity.
It makes such a difference walking home dry.
Back home, Courage had got stuck into preparing the ground for paving outside the Little Lookout.
Later the work was done and the pavers went down…
This is from my balcony…
And it’s almost done – tomorrow we get grass for the left side.
The above photo was taken after the rain. An unexpected little storm, complete with thunder and lightening came by, although it doesn’t look as threatening in the photo below.
The other thing that happened this morning is the land surveyor came to survey one of the plots above us…
He was standing at the back of one of the plots. The plans for the (big) house to be built on that land go to Council soon. I can imagine that they will be spewed out in a year’s time. Our view of the mountain will change after that.
I started carrying bricks from the front pavement up 3/4 of the stairs. I’ve got about 16 more trips before the job is complete. Maybe I’ll do 8 tomorrow and the final 8 on Friday.
It was a good cardio workout.
And I worked for 7 and a half hours.
A varied day.
You are their glorious strength. It pleases You to make us strong.
The best is yet to come – we are only passing through.
Keep the smile going.
God bless you.
In His Grip,
