After a recent shoulder injury the doctor asked me if I did any exercising. Without missing a beat I replied, "Yes, I work out in the yard, garden, keep a tidy house, and enjoy playing with my three year old grandson." It may not have been exactly what he was referring to as far as traditional exercising goes, but being a good sport and the obviously well informed man that he is he agreed that those activities were indeed good exercise. Anybody that also enjoys any one of the before mentioned activities knows exactly what I'm talking about. Spending a half hour or more in the garden weeding, watering, planting, or harvesting on a daily basis guarantees you're getting a healthy workout. I can touch my toes with no problem thanks to an over abundance of tenacious weeds in my rock garden, and shooing crows out of the vegetable garden keeps the upper arms in shape; even though it does lead the neighbors to think I might have gone round the bend. Speaking of neighbors, their cat keeps me in rare sprinting form since cats prefer flowerbeds for the built in air freshener. As far as keeping limber, if chasing after a three year old doesn't do it, nothing will.
