This flu has hung on far too long. It has out weighed it's welcome, not that it was ever invited or welcome. I can honestly say I have not been hit by such a nasty bug in a very long time. But it's now been a week and a half and while I'm still coughing and still weak I am feeling stronger today. Unfortunately John has been hit by it too. I actually think he had it first then seemed to get better for a week and then had another relapse. Today I actually felt this boring story will be over soon.
John and I managed to pick up a large round bale of hay for the horses yesterday. We weren't out completely but with snow in the forecast and no tractor on the farm we wanted to make sure we got the new bale out while we could still drive the truck into the paddock. That trip alone was exhausting. We left the truck parked with the round bale parked in the lane yesterday so we would have enough energy left to do chores. Today we got the hay our and the horses in their paddock and while we were tired we aren't as weak as yesterday so it's been a happy day.
What has been nice has been to be quiet and watch old black and white movies. Sleep during the day without guilt and drink a lot of herbal tea. To have some time to be quiet and reflect is always good. Meanwhile I look forward to being out and about enjoying this winter and actually doing things that are worth writing about.
