Who the heck ordered sinus headaches with a side of sore throat? I start to feel better and then it slaps me down again. Common sense says to take it easy for a couple of days, but you don't have that option when you have animals to tend.
The fickle weather has made things even harder. My guess is all the fronts are responsible for the constant ups and downs of the pressure in my head.
It would be easier if Greg was here, but I'm on my own, battening down the hatches for another freeze. It was in the 80s on Saturday, but it plunged below freezing on Sunday, and currently 16 degrees this morning. Yesterday, we had an ice storm and lost power. Ah, the joys of country living.
During freezes like this I lug buckets of hot water several times a day to all the pens so everyone can get a warm drink.
My poor fruit trees are bursting with little buds waiting for Mother Nature to make up her mind.
Soon, I hope.
As I look down at my feet I'm surrounded by dog-mines. Each of them perfectly positioned so I can't leave the room without an entourage. They've been good hounds though. I haven't had the energy to walk them like I usually do. I think they realize I'm not at 100%.
Well...all except Nana. She thinks the world should revolve around her. Rotten kid.
The bright side is that my power is back, and it'll be warmer tomorrow. We'll be back in the 70s by the end of the week.
What do you do when you're not feeling well? Live like a hermit, or have the spouse and/or kids wait on you? (Maybe you can lend me one of them.)
