Yesterday morning early I was working in my garden. A half hour before it was time to get ready for church, I started feeling poorly. My joints started aching. I got chilled. It was pushing 90 degrees outside and muggy and I took a steaming hot bath. Then I went to bed with several blankets and a down sleeping bag over me. It was some sort of a virus. My temperature went to 102. I felt real bad the rest of the day and night.
Today I took a sick day off from work. I was useless. I spent a good part of the day dozing in a recliner. I felt like I was an old man. This afternoon I spent some time in my shop filling orders, in super-slow motion, for chicken plucker parts and books.
Fortunately, I don’t get sick often and I’m feeling a lot better this evening. I think I’ll live.
But I’m feeling overwhelmed. There is a lot going on around here and I’m falling behind with some things.
Therefore I have decided to take a little break from blogging. Just a little one. I’ll be back on June 18th. That day will be the three-year anniversay of The Deliberate Agrarian
See you then.
