Toiling in the Garden

I weeded the garden bed alongside the driveway. I filled up three Walmart plastic grocery bags with weeds. Each bag is stuffed full. After filling the first bag, I had to stop. My right knee hurt; the arch of my left foot hurt; and the lower right-hand side of my back hurt. The pain was excruciating. I could barely walk upright, although the walking did get better the more steps I took. I took ibuprofen for the pain and rested for a while. I went back outside about an hour later and did some more weeding. After filling the second plastic bag with weeds, I decided to stop before the pain got too bad. I went back outside 30-45 minutes later and filled the third plastic bag with weeds. Guess what? I finished the job! I had to stop and start several times, but I finished. It was hard toiling in the garden. The reward is that the garden bed once again looks great. Sorry, no picture this time. I’m too tired to go get the camera. So please just take my word. The garden bed looks great!
