I feel like a hamster running on a wheel; there is never an end in sight to the things that have to be done. Couple that with horrible allergies and the wheel that I’m running around seems as though it continues to get bigger and bigger and bigger; still with no end in sight. My allergies are so bad today that the bones in my face hurt as if I have a monster toothache, which I don’t think I have. I’ve taken several different homeopathic remedies and haven’t had any relief.
In addition to the high pollen count, it’s bloody hot! As I write this, it’s 87 degrees! A week ago, it was only 65 degrees; two weeks ago, it was 59 degrees. These changes are incredibly drastic. It seems as though we went from bare branches on the trees to pale green leaves overnight.
Poor Split is suffering from the heat. Up until the past week, I wasn’t sure if she was even pregnant.
Milking in the evening has become a sauna.
Gosh, I’m cranky and I’ve been so for several days now. Forget doing anything with the horses. It feels like my brains are sloshing around in my head and to move any quicker than a slow walk makes the sloshing sensation painful. I truly wanted to begin today with a solid 14 day schedule of training on both horses, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Instead I stayed inside and put our winter clothes away and took out the summer. Hopefully, I’ll use my summer work clothes. I didn’t touch my winter work clothes. I should have left them packed.
The weekend was busy. We spent most of Friday running errands. I had a custom grain mixture made up at a feed store in Fallston. From there we went to Statesville to pick up rabbits and more grain. We were going to go back to the farm where the clinic was the weekend before last for a “play date” but we decided to stay home and work on chores. We still didn’t get everything done. Even Wally who really doesn’t have allergies, isn’t feeling much better than I am.
Thunderstorms and a cool down are forecast for Thursday. That will be a very good thing.
Until later …
