Out of the Blue

I'm a little sore today after putting away yesterday's delivery of wood pellets for our pellet stove. It feels like I carried a ton of them, which is not the typical exaggerative use of that term, as there was literally a ton of them. I've lugged around these 40 lb bags before with no issue, but it turned out that hauling 50 of them through the house added up to a bit of actual exercise, at least for a desk jockey like myself. Just the latest reminder I should be more active, as well as the latest reminder that I seem to be good at ignoring such reminders when they pop up. I'll have to actually work on that.
