A Slow Day

My meds are all leaving me tired
And sluggish to quite a degree,
I need to be getting hot-wired
For more than a snail’s pace to see,

Today simply shopping down local,
While taking some stuff to the dump,
Had me then becoming quite vocal
That I’d rather sit on my rump.

Still, I took a physical checkup
As offered by Medical Aid
Thought might as well see what else heck-up,
If anything, on my health grade.

Well, that seemed to come out quite healthy
Apart from known issues I’ve got,
And in garage tidied a shelf the
Condition of which good was not.

Next, drawer in the girls’ room repairing
Meant need for restoring a slide,
Bust glass shelf in fridge then despairing
Of taking it out from inside.

Then I still continued pool lining
Removal, til balance I lost,
And into a cycad, reclining, 
Was done at some damages’ cost.

I patched myself up with some plaster,
Tried blogging, but internet out,
Which is a recurring disaster
I’m not very happy about.

At ten-ish, it’s lately restoring,
When I’d rather start the night’s sleep;
Result, I cannot help deploring —
Irregular hours I must keep!

While waiting for this restoration
I still fairly active have been:
Appended improved peroration
On previous post may be seen.

    Your exhaustion seems well-earned! Glad your health is strong despite the factors you’ve faced thus far. You have a busy life. 🙂

    The beasties seem to approve of the deconstructuation. 😀 … when one overbalances and falls into the shrubbery it’s time cuppa tea (or the restorative beverage of your choice) and contemplate the universe for a while. 😀


  4. The best part of the pix is orange cat and the shadow cat stalking…oh, innocently following. Good to have on site job inspectors like those two keeping you moving…I’m sure they also have a list of requested changes for their new obstacle course…

    I’m not surprised you’re tired, you do too much – slow down!

      We have a goodly collection — Mr Mack, Pearl, Amber, Cassie, M, Blackit, and Katie Purry. Now we are actively seeking a large dog to add to the other elderly three as a disincentive to wrongdoers.

    OMG, it is quite a major restoration.


  8. You never seem to rest, Col. Anyway, I’m glad your checkup was positive. I think you need a holiday, but then you’d probably spend your leisure time thinking of all the chores you should be doing. 😀
