So, the wife and I and five other guys from church went on a mission trip to Africa week before last. We were working on a construction project for some missionary friends of ours.

There wasn't much opportunity to do anything "naturally" apart from a couple of "bucket baths" as we were surrounded by many local women and children, and though we did see some people bathing in a creek bed along the side of the road, the country we were in is fairly "prudish" in practice.

However, although I had spent the entire week climbing up and down ladders, working over my head and bent over, it wasn't until after we had been home for three days that my back decided to argue with me... make that "scream at me!!!". Somehow, in the comfort of my own home, without doing anything EXTREME that I can recall, I caused a disk to bulge in my lower back, pinching enough nerves that I could barely walk and even the tiniest movement resulted in a loud grunt or scream. I went to the doctor, who can normally to a manipulation and have me back and running within a day, but who said he could not do so this time without an x-ray and then an MRI. As it is, I am having to wait a week before the MRI and another week before I can get an injection to reduce the inflammation.

So, for the last week, I have been home, resting and barely moving, and I mean "barely" moving. I have been drinking lots of water and other fluids which makes me make several visits to the restroom per day. It is painful just to get there, but far more so to have to bend over to lift the seat or pull pants down or up, so I remained nude 99.9% of the time. Apart from the pain, it was a very nice week. As a bonus, I found that the pain would subside some if I laid in the sun for about 20-minutes at a time on my belly.

NOT the way I would prefer to do things "naturally", but very glad that we live in a house and that I have a wife which allows me the option.
SON-cerely,

When you said "barely moving," I kinda figured it had a dual meaning. Hope you get to feeling better and that the Great Physician ultimately prevails.

Just another routine task but doing it nude was advantageous. ........
As some point I will probably just have all the windows in the house replaced but until then I have to keep what I have in working condition. A second window has had the corner of the lower sash deteriorate into wood crumbs. Rot get into the wood, bacteria do their thing and then maybe insects move in maybe not. this time some variety of tiny ants decided this was a nice playground. But they were just taking advantage of the situation and were not apparantly causitive. Nudity played a part as the weather has turned hot and muggy. and the slight breeze wafting in the window feel like the breath of a blast furnance. Hence working sans clothing was a blessing. The fact that the window was on the west side of the house where there is no shade and the work was done in the afternoon and the sun was little restrained by the very thin overcast made Nudity all the more advantage.

The task was basically one of removing the sash. scraping away the rotted wood (about 50 % of everything within 4 inches of the corner of the sash. Inserting tiny brads into the remaining reasonably sound wood, to improve the security of the replacement filler, and then affixing some thin slats to make a form to retain the filler material in the proper shape. The filler used was Bondo which hardens so fast that it has to be applied in small layers because there is not time enough for a large batch.

Working nude helped with the temperature and humidity issues, however it did impose some extra precautions as one would not want to get freshly catalyzed Bondo on tender skin and the use of acetone for cleanup of the soft mixture requires care for the same reasons. But with a modicume of care nude is satisfactory for suchwork in hot weather. material was molded and then shaved with a very sharp chisel while still not full hard, and then sanded. The brads driven into the wood provide a mechanical grip for the bondo as an auxilliary to the chemical bond that the bondo develops, and a few pieces of stiff wire bent into L shapes were also embedded much like re-bar in concrete as the repair was at a corner.

Because of the extremely rapid setting of the bondo material the repair of the sash was accomplished in about an hour, and the removal and reinstallation accounted for about another 45 minutes to an hour each for removal and then reinstallation. Hopefully painting can be done tomorrow, and the repair should last more than long enough to schedule a complete window replacement with modern windows can be done all at once.

It was just another task carried out because.
-- I could !
AND
-- Most everything is better and more fun done nude. :D

Those are the two strongest reasons I post so many of these mundane tasks in this strip. Such postings show how little we really need clothes! It is part of establishing a proper naturist outlook and lifestyle. :wink:

So having breakfast nude outdoors on the deck in spring and summer weather is not particularly unusual but this time I was so impressed by the beauty that I thought to take a couple of pictures and try to share in word and image this blessing.

What impressed me most is the scene i was greeted by as I carried the breakfast tray out on the deck.

It was the lighting that enhanced the scene. It was a little earlier than usual for breakfast, and it was overcast. Because the sun was so low on the dawn horizon. The sunlight was coming in under the overcast and it illuminated the top of the oak forest beyond the pond. In the subdued light under the overcast, the light of the dawn slipping under the overcast and hitting the tops of the trees gave a brilliant glow to the tree tops. I had just brough out the breakfast tray and we were getting ready to sit down to eat. I would rather have set up the camera on the tripod and had it take pictures while we breakfasted but my wife is a bit camera shy and not always eager for me to exercise my photography hobby if she is in the picture.

The above image of breakfast is a little bit special. My wife is an excellent cook and pastry chef, and every sabbath evening she goes to extra effort with the meal, and that always includes a special desert. Of course, as there are only two of us, that means that there will be several meals before the desert is consumed and as good as her pastries are, I am hard pressed to resist consuming the special treat until it is all gone. To help resist calorie overload, I have a policy of consuming the desert as part of breakfast the next few days so that I do not keep consuming it as an addition to regular meals and that means I have pastry as part of rather than an addition to breakfast. So this morning I had Coffee, Turkey Bacon, and Chocolate Pie for breakfast. :D . My wife, not being all that interested in breakfast just shares just Coffee with me as she prefers to browse a bit later in the morning. But it is the time we share in a beautiful setting as we start each day off. She is very supportive of my practice of naturism though she does share in the activity herself. But each morning we share breakfast as we start the day and always on the deck, weather permitting...... and weather not permitting, when we remodled we expanded the porch and enclosed it with lots of windows and we breakfast there. But the view overlooking the garden the fields, the lawn, the woods and the pond while sitting nude on the deck is breakfast at its best in my opinion.
