It has been unseasonably cold here. The average low here this time of year is about 50 degrees...highs are supposed to be getting in the lower 70s. Last night it was down to freezing!
Most know by now, I dont do cold weather. Hate it. It makes me sleep. Curl up in a ball and become very unproductive.
So this morning, for the first time in weeks, my shoulders are not hurting me when I get too still, such as when I try to sleep. I think it is bursitis. The only thing I could do is ice it and take Ibuprofin. I lost a lot of sleep. That was getting me down too.
I got rest last night, six full hours of no pain and restful sleep. The sun was making the sky pink at around 6:40 and I didnt have any urge to go lay back down. I had already had one cup of coffee, let the dog out, fed her, and went out to let the chickens and goats out. As I was doing this, here come the three emus from the back corner of the property where they have decided to sleep, against my better judgement as a emu parent. ;)
I think I am snapping out of this fog. I am going to go in a little bit and get some gas in the can and get out there and do some mowing. I love to sit on my mower (yes, MY mower) and ride and smell that fresh cut grass, even the wild onion smell is nice.
For anyone that has found myjournal during the winter, I do the yard work, all of it. I love it. I guess its my Daddys blood coming out in me.
Ian does the garden though, I suck at gardening, only because I dont dedicate myself to it, I spend more time chickening that gardening. I do the tomatoes, he does the rest.
I know I have been slack in journaling, going to journals, and taking pictures and video. That happens to me sometimes. When I first started journaling..that journal is deleted now, but when I first started journaling...I disappeared from May til about October or something like that...lol. I felt overwhelmed when I saw I had over 500 emails, most alerts. I am not going to lie. I am too far behind to catch up on everybody, soI deleted everything, and starting from the email alerts I get today.
If the weather is warm, you better believe I am outside. As I say this...Iam going now to get the tags for the vehicles, get a birthday card and send it off for Ians dad, and get some gas in the can.
You all have a fantastic day. Hopefully I can come back here tomorrow morning with some video and pictures. The emus and goats are really frisky and make me laugh with their crazy antics. Hopefully I can get some good video and shots of them today while I am out there mowing and doing stuff. :)
