 The weekend was kind of a bust...well, I did get to mow but other things interfered.

On Friday, at work, I started getting sick.  Stomach bug of some sort.  Not sure if it was something I ate or what but suffice to say, it was not a pleasant afternoon and into the evening.  I had a terrible headache as well. I came home and went to bed about 7pm.  Slept (well, I use the word loosely) until about 11am Saturday.

Decided not to go to the farm, I was feeling a bit better but not 100%, I wanted to stay close just in case.

Sunday it was overcast and drizzly (of course Saturday was gorgeous, wouldn't it figure) but I went anyway.  After mowing a bit, I noticed it was uneven.  I'm hoping the mowing deck is just not level, I need to read up on how to re-level it.  But didn't feel up to it yesterday.

Did what I needed and left.  There was another moment of not so Zen, I'll share that in the next post.

I was feeling better but of course being Sunday, I couldn't stay too late since work comes early and I needed to rest and recover for Monday morning.

I know this is probably a boring post, just didn't have much in me when I was typing. Sorry.

As a reward, here is some bonus Hobart that we usually post on Sunday:

Hobart laid next to me on the couch most of the day Saturday, swaddled in his fluffy red blanket. Because...

  1. Sorry you had a “not so Zen” weekend. Having a bug is miserable whether it’s the weekend or weekday, but especially on the weekend. Hoping you feel better very soon.
    Aww, Hobart – snug as a bug in a rug!

  2. How many hours a day does Hobart sleep? I am glad you are feeling better. Gastrointestinal issues are never pleasant and slow to leave, at least for me.

  3. Stomach bug is no fun. Hope you didnt pass it on.

  4. The top photo really looks nice. Was that 1 area that you had done by the working crew who cleared areas for you?
    You may need to have your mower blades checked/ sharpened and they may be bent a little; or like I usually say, 'out of whack.'
    Hope you are feeling better. No fun at all being sick.
    Hobart has the right idea; lots of R & R.
    Do take care and have a great week.
    Storms in forecast here for late this afternoon / evening.
