She rises while it is still night and provides food for her household.... Proverbs 31.15
"Getting up early is for the birds" was a saying near and dear to my heart, until I realize I was named after one. Such irony!
Seriously, getting back into the groove of rising early to prepare breakfast, pack his lunch and make sure he has all his 'stuff' before he heads out the door, isn't a hardship but a joy after the long break we've had. It's only day two so we're still kinda giddy about the whole thing.
He came home yesterday smiling despite being wet, tired and... limping??? Um, yah.... While reaching for a nail gun, by the air hose to which it is attached, the nail gun discharged and lodged a nail into his knee!
Fortunately, he was wearing double knee pants, the nail didn't go deep and he was able to attend to it right away with first aid. The defective gun was immediately retired and an incident report was filed. This morning he is moving slowly and stiffly in that leg so am praying for fast healing and no lasting impairment!
Aside from the nail gun incident, he enjoyed the first day and is looking forward to absorbing more of the work environment and finding his place there.
Meanwhile, we woke to a blanket of white on the ground which was a little confusing at first glance considering how much rain I listened to last night as I was waiting for sleep to claim me. The Lion of March is letting out his final roar. I'd say this weather is for the birds but that would be more irony than I can stand this early in the morning.
