About the Hood --- Day 3/56

Walk: Alta Plaza Park, Mindful Body, Hi Tech Nails
Distance: 2 miles and take yoga class

It's all about the hood these days.  Today was a clean up day at our neighborhood (crumbling) gem of a park, Alta Plaza Park.
A helpful Parks and Rec landscape designer   came to hand out assignments, tools, encouragement.

There was a good turnout, and mercifully many of them were young.

Because this grass along the edge of the sidewalks may look like nothing: 
But, oh boy, is it tough.  This little stretch could take as much as 20 minutes of scraping with a heavy shovel to clear.  After an hour Ciwt's back, hips, shoulders were crying 'uncle.'  Hard work!
Makes you appreciate our ranchers, farmers, professional gardeners and all those who work in the physically demanding fields.
