Still sore

It's been two days now since I spent the day gardening and painting lawn furniture for The Children's Room in Arlington, with a buncha other people from my department at work, and I still ache all over.

Digging in the ground with my hands seems to have left minor (invisible) bruising on the fleshy part of my thumbs, at the base of the hand... My legs are complaining about the squatting and kneeling parts of the day.

Whee. This means I need to get more flexible, not that I need to do less :)

That's Awesome Chris!
The Children's Room is a great organization - I used to be a volunteer grief counselor for them. How nice of you to donate your time to them!

my guess is that the "invisible bruising" is actually muscle soreness - your thumb and other hand muscles are probably not used to weeding, digging etc ;-)

it's neat that you're doing this!

Well, it was kind of a one-time thing. BEA grants employees one day a year to go volunteer with other employees... my boss ran this particular volunteer day, others went to the Stone Zoo, or some place in New Hampshire.

It was a good time, though, with a good number of my coworkers all digging in the dirt or painting stuff :) Maybe I'll try to keep track of when they're doing it next year, and take a day off at my new job.

You might want to tell the LJ-meisters about it; they might be interested in following up...
