I Kid You Not

I don’t miss many posts… but, holy cow, I’ve lost track of days with this stomach bug. It was nasty!  Beyond nasty.  Way beyond nasty.

I woke up with it Sunday morning, the day we were going to brand after we had been delayed due to rain.  Luckily, the food was made, and Tess came and got it and hauled everything down to the site.

My sister came and got my camera, after I had disinfected it!  She promised to take pics for me as she is often on babysitting patrol and not too active in the branding process.  She has a camera kind of like mine… so I didn’t give her instructions.  You know, push the button…

Well, she did take lots of “pics”.  Unfortunately they were all videos!  She pushed the movie button, not the photo button.  There’s a good start and then she would put the camera in her lap or on a fence post… and there’s a nice movie of a weld on the horse trailer!  Bless your heart for trying, sis, but I guess cameras are just too old fashioned.

I did get to hear the sounds and see some of the branding, though… even though I was super sick!  I was hoping for a 12 hour bug.  Nope.  24 hours, then.  Nope.  Today’s Tuesday and I’m not going to go to work tomorrow.  I thought I felt good enough today to go outside and look at my garden.  Not rototill, just look… and I sat out there and soaked up the sunshine and was exhausted.

My grass is boot high in some spots.

I feel I should bleach my house from top to bottom so Vernon doesn’t catch this, but I walk and put a cup in the sink and I go sit down again.

I’ve got a sinus thing going on too… holey moley, I kid you not… I’m a pretty pitiful example of humankind lately.  Between my tooth and now this… I deserve some ice cream.  And I don’t have any.  Which is very sad.

On the upside, I enjoyed the new Lost in Space show on Netflix… and one called The Rain was okay, and the secrets of castles in England was interesting… and Before We Go was a nice little story… Yup.  Me and Netflix, we’re buds.

Tess sent me this pic of Jaxon… look at him gritting his teeth holding onto that calf!  Three generations right there, folks… and that’s why I love this life… even if I did have to miss it in person!

  1. I’m so sorry that you got so sick! That is very yucky having that. I hope that you are much better now (since I am late in viewing your posts).

  2. Sorry you had to go through this. I’m really glad you’re back — was getting worried about you.

    Is Jaxon gritting his teeth or grinning or both!

  3. So sorry this bug is ‘hanging around’. But as I’ve found out in recent years ……… It takes me a LOT longer to recover than it did ten years ago. So rest when you need to and get well soon. Lovely post to read.

  4. Man! that sounds like the worst stomach bug ever. I’m glad you are on the mend and can watch your own branding videos compliments of your sister! The close-up of Jaxon helping might be a good calendar pic (hint hint!).
