Sunday, a Day of Rest?

Yesterday was supposed to be a day of rest, but it didn't quite work out that way.

Al went outside in the morning to find it was a tiny bit cooler and cloudy.  He used that opportunity to paint some outside wood trim and side porch.  We've been trying to get this area painted, but we needed to do it in the afternoon when the sun was not shining directly on the area.  The problem with that idea was that by afternoon, it was just too hot.  We worked together and got it done.  One more thing down.

We decided to take a load of stuff to the storage building, then take the rest of the day off.  After all, isn't Sunday supposed to be a day of rest?

I don't quite know what happened but we both got a lot of energy and we continued working most of the day.  Al especially worked very hard and mostly outside in the heat.  We got the pasture about half mowed and he cleaned up the branches we cut down the day before.  By evening, he was getting muscle cramps real bad and was sore all over.  He took a hot shower, took some potassium, and rubbed JointFlex all over but he still had leg cramps.  For some reason, he is prone to them.  I think he over did it yesterday in the heat.  I guess I'm going to have to make him stop sooner.
We got a really bad storm last night.  It poured for about an hour.  Nothing severe but as usual it made me nervous.  That is one thing I worry about when we are living full time in the motor home.
