I am re-learning an appreciation for farm workers. Today was day two (week two) of farm share.
Two years ago when I was doing this, I was napping after my 2 1/2 hours picking veggies. I remember it took me weeks to acclimate to the strenuous activity. Eventually I reached the point where I could continue on with my day after the shift.
This time around I have about an hour between work share and work work. So, no napping. A quick shower and lunch, if I am lucky.
Tonight, I am feeling muscles in my body I forgot I had, and sinking into the exhaustion instead of reading. There is always more to read but my eyelids are drooping.
