Sick Day XXVIII
It is odd that this is my 28th sick day post, and all during this time I have never been sick. It caught up with me this weekend and I blame it on the heat. I moved two yards of 2 inch crushed stone to a spot between two pastures where it gets really muddy. Muddy places pull off horse shoes. Though we no longer shoe our horses I had to eliminate the muck. After that I went up to Jewell to get a load of hay out of a field. This involved latching the door on the horse trailer open, driving to where a couple bales are sitting, turn off the truck, get out, load them and then drive to the next couple of bales. It was 81 degrees at 6pm in Jewell.
I went back the following morning for another load, and I felt exhausted when I finally got home around Noon, so I took a nap and woke up at 5pm. I really need to unload that hay today (Sunday) and I do feel a little better, but I bet I relapse as soon as I am done. I simply don’t do well in heat. Thankfully it is supposed to get cool here again later today.
So dear readers, forgive my lack of ability to put out a sick day post as you have grown accustomed to, but I really am sick today.
