Mostly work on rough carpentry, gardening, lifting and moving. On the whole, enjoyable.
When resting during the heat of the day, I read, study, research, use the Internet, play video games, make notes, shop, and nap.
Most of our home improvement objectives have been accomplished. We will set new goals and objectives in September. We want a 8 foot by 8 foot garden bed set over the removed lawn on the west street side of the property. I will redo and improve the garden hoses watering system. We will plant more shrubs in our garden and yard.
We have travel plans in the Northwest this summer and autumn. My brother and nephew and families are visiting us this summer.
Not doing much Taijiquan, Qigong, Yoga, Feldenkrais, or walking since the Spring. Mostly focused on home improvement work projects. This work on home projects gives my 72 year old body plenty of exercise. I do plan to resume my former exercises in August of 2018.
Work Quotations: http://www.gardendigest.com/work.htm
"Every kind of work can be a pleasure. Even simple household tasks can be an opportunity to exercise and expand our caring, our effectiveness, our responsiveness. As we respond with caring and vision to all work, we develop our capacity to respond fully to all of life. Every action generates positive energy which can be shared with others. These qualities of caring and responsiveness are the greatest gift we can offer."
- Tarthang Tulku
I will add a few pictures of our efforts:
