I donâ€™t know what it was, but I got sick last night. Ached all over. Abdominal aches. The Runs. Was freezing enough to put the electric heating pad on me when I went to bed. I think it was cumulative effects of being away this weekend and spending a lot of time out in the rain. Plus I did most (well, all) the cooking for Field Day and spent the weekend stuffed with Burgers & Dogs & Chicken. And not sleeping that much. I think it just wore me down.
But, Iâ€™m old. Sixty-Two now. Damn! But I do feel a LOT better today and am looking forward to the projected 80 degrees. Iâ€™ll probably lay out to thaw out from this last weekend. (Iâ€™d lay out anyway even if this last weekend was also 80+ degrees. Thatâ€™s me. Solar Powered!)
So, got out and watered/weeded the garden. Rode the rider-mower around the back yard. Took a walk around the back 40. Made myself some Chicken-fried-rice for lunch. Also mowed the back yard and about half the path around the back 40. About to get out and clean the tent-trailer so I can pack it back up. Iâ€™d mow the front-side yard but the neighbors would insist that I put my clothes on. Buttheads.
Other than all the things Iâ€™ve mentioned not much going on around here. Need to get SWMBOâ€™s son to help me get the generator off the truck. Need to mow the rest of the path we walk around the property. Gotta call a friend back and walk her through updating her virus protection on her computer. Have to take the mower (and some money) over to Larryâ€™s house tomorrow and get the part we bought put on.
Why The Hell Did I Retire? Luckily itâ€™s supposed to be sunny and hot all week!
