I am not kidding. For most of the day I have felt totally "blah"...sleepy...doped...well, pick which ever adjective you think might suit the best. With two cups of post-lunch coffee, I managed to keep moving.
This morning, I seriously thought that I wasn't going to be able to complete anything. I decided almost as soon as I returned from feeding the chickens that there was no way I was going to even bother working on The Cow Cavalry today because I simply would have been wasting my time.
I guess I was already feeling 'drag-ish' when I went out to feed the birds, but since I (stupidly) did not cover my ears when I went out into not 25 degree weather, I got a splitting ear/tooth/jaw ache which really hurts. The pain I get in my head from cold inner ears drives me nearly crazy sometimes.
I made my breakfast, ate it, washed dishes, had my tea, stuck a few more bee-hive frames together...then I made lunch. I was rather surprised that I was able to put it together without wandering around in inane circles, wondering what on earth I was going to make, and in a fairly short amount of time, too. (Savannah had gone out to help Grandma straighten up her apartment...that's why dead-brain was cooking. ;])
I even managed (around lunch time) to write up the next 'chapter' of "The War Between the States Journal". Yes, I have actually re-started work on that.
With two cups of coffee in me, I set my face to a) cleaning up the kitchen, b) continuing my frame-gluing escapade (it may not get completed today--still), and c) washing the eggs from the past three days. After that I decided that I was going to hazard making some breads...which I did while taking breaks to glue-frames and finally fry up a certain number of fractured eggs which will be fed to the chickens this evening. Please don't ask me how long they have been sitting in the fridge--partly because I don't remember and partly because I should be embarrassed by it.
After that, I thought I had enough energy to tackle grinding up a certain amount of "slops" to feed to my worms. Those boogers are not growing very fast...I think partly because I haven't fed them enough and partly because they are probably a little cool. I have also been trying to keep them a little more moist. That will probably help as well. I have two bins in the basement...one is doing better than the other.
Well, I got done with that delightfully messy job (I do enjoy getting my hands dirty, you know) and came up and washed another sink full of dishes. Amazing how small jobs can leave you a sink full of food processor and bowls.
Then I cooked myself an egg (it was snack time), ate that...and sat down to write this. After, of course, gluing another frame. :P
To return to the title of this post though, I have been pleasantly surprised that I got this much stuff accomplished!
Now, I have one more job I need to take care of...so...I'll leave off and go take care of it. :) And then after that I have some stuff to go dump in the garden and then it'll be time to feed the chickens again...and by that time I shall be inquiring of Savannah, "What's for supper??" ;)
