Age and gardening: I remember that I was surprised the first time that gardening tired me. Exercise manuals include gardening as a form of exercise, but when you're young, that's a stretch for the imagination; you're hardly moving, for god's sake! But I felt like I was moving in slow motion after a day's work in the garden. I was embarrassed by it. Could my neighbors detect my slow motion gait? Now days, I'm no longer surprised by it. I'm surprised if I can work all day, accomplish my goals and still be functional until bedtime. Age is a wonder.
