Weed Whackers!!!!

Boy was I way off the mark!

DH bought a Shindaiwa FIVE years ago (not 2 or 3 like I thought:(.

He STILL loves it and says it has held up to some brutal work.

He got tired of the lower models for home use so spent the money on a professional level weed eater. He said that was the smartest thing he’s done in awhile as he has put any money into repairs yet.

It was a long and stressful week here. Mocha came up lame, I had a group research paper due that none in the group wanted to give me their parts, I brought an injured and mangy looking stray cat home, and work was insanely busy. Have vet appointment for the cat to get checked and one of the dogs in an hour and then all the chores and cooking today because I will be working the next 6 days in a row yay overtime!



Usually I cook once a week and eat on it for the week. I enjoy cooking but it's easier to just heat up leftovers all week than to have to cook every night. Haven't had drive thru or takeout since March 5th. everything comes from home.



I'm just mentally and physically tired from all of this corona stuff.

Weird some of the similarities. I had sausage last night to. This was a dish with cabbage, onion and I put mustard.

My hair is ridiculous. I to have thought of taking Remington's clippers to it.

Snow this morning! Not really a whole lot, just enough to be irksome on the drive to work. Otherwise the week was mostly dry and the terrain good.

Back in March I started coursework to complete my bachelor's, and this university does the program online, two courses at a time for 8 week terms. As someone who has regularly done poorly in traditional school, I'm going into week 6 and still doing well. I'm mostly enjoying the work (EMS leadership class = engaging and fun! Job search class = dull as beans.) and feeling pretty ok about my prospects for future terms.

I bought an actual yoga mat and have been practicing with videos on Amazon, really enjoying that. I miss swimming but hope soon it'll be warm enough and/or the pools will open again. (I swam a 1/2 mile race in 58f ocean water last year, just get me to 60 and I'll survive!)

Wednesday was my dad's 75th birthday. His gf paid him a surprise visit with flowers and a card. We had takeout from an Indian restaurant for dinner, and he is spending some of the weekend with her. (I am at work til tomorrow morning.) Last night I was going to order sushi, but my favorite place is closed *sob*. So I had leftovers. As for workplace dinner... Eh, we'll see where we're at. I'm expecting another rough night, probably middle of the night long haul. It's that right-side bedroom, it's cursed, I swear. Is there a patron saint of sleep?

Thanks y'all for the weed eater suggestions!

And Happy Anniversary @ksbowman ! Yesterday was our wedding anniversary too! (11 years) He is in Oklahoma right now, no celebration this weekend for us either. Flatbedding is a little slow so he is going to stay back there and haul fertilizer while the getting is good.

We were talking about colic last week on the Friday night thread...
I got home from work yesterday afternoon, turned the horses out on the grass and enjoying a cold beer on the porch.
I know the look, the I'm very uncomfortable look when they start to colic. The mare got the look. I watched her, she laid down got up, parked out and started curling her lip and wanted to get back down again. Carp!
I caught her as I made a call to the vet just to see if I could haul her in if things got bad.
Gave her some Banamine and a tube of gel.
Within 40 minutes she perked up thank goodness!
No trip to the vet. I checked on her a few times through the night, saw she had been drinking and fed her some wet hay this morning before I headed to work as she was her normal self.
Phew!

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

@Foxhunter - lol on the dog getting the pie! I would have been so mad. The pies sound yummy.

@ksbowman - Happy Anniversary!! Sorry about the cruise getting cancelled. Your dinner sounds delicious.

@COWCHICK77 - I have a Kobalt battery weed eater that I like... it's heavy duty and the battery lasts a long time and is a quick charge. And Happy Anniversary as well! Glad your mare is okay, scary!

@Acadianartist - I agree with @tinyliny on if I was a neighbor I'd come beggin, sounds like you have quite a bit of syrup though.

@Change - TSC here is out of bermuda as well.... I was bummed as I had made a special trip for it.

@boots - that's awesome of them to do that for you so you can get to ride.

It rained here yesterday morning, glad as it will help settle the seed and fertilizer in. My radishes have sprung along with my spinach. Yay! There's something that's coming up that looks like it might be a squash but I think that's from the compost, it'll be a wait and see kinda thing.

Thanks all for the good thoughts on my mom... she's a tough one, I'll be surprised if it takes her out.

@myhorserules , Sounds like you had a really rough week:(. I hope things improved over the weekend:). I stopped watching news because all I see is something on Covid19. I record it and fast forward to the weather, watch that, then delete it, lollol. Is the stray kitty still hanging in there?

@redbadger , are you using the yoga mat? I tip my hat to you as I would let it gather dust in the spare bedroom, lol

@COWCHICK77 , happy 11th anniversary. It is a bummer your husband is on the road but I agree - get the mo ey while the gettin’ is good:)

Great news your mare is ok. This weather absolutely stinks where livestock is concerned. All the wide and wild weather swings make keeping horses on an even keel pretty difficult:(

@lb27312 , glad your mom is still doing well:). We all wish her a safe and speedy recovery:)

****
Not much new here - no news is good news sometimes:)

@walkinthewalk - today was not great, we have to wear masks at work and with the heat and humidity I couldn't breathe well and it triggered a panic attack.

The kitty is doing well. He went to the vet yesterday for ear mite treatment, flea meds and a rabies shot. His name is Salem and he has made himself quite at home lol

I “liked” the kitty part of your comment:). Sounds like Salem is well on his way to recovery.

Is your vet clinic curbside service? The clinics in my area come and get the animal in the parking lot, while the owner waits in the car.

I am claustrophobic to the point I can have a panic attack if I have to sit in bumper-to-bumper traffic for too long.

You have my sympathy, having to wear a mask all those hours

I hope this virus stuff is over soon and we can get back to normal behavior

@COWCHICK77 and @ksbowman happy belated anniversary's. Hope you have many more.

@lb27312 good thoughts from here for your Mom. Hope she gets well soon.

@aubie Do you like cabbage, noodles, with onions and butter, lots of butter.

@JCnGrace Youngest son, DIL and granddaughter and I also took a drive today as he wanted to go down to visit his moms grave. Put some new flowers (fake)
and removed the faded out ones. Stopped and said Hi to sister in law than came back home. Gone about 4.5 hrs. and Carmen acted like it had been years. LOL. Silly dog.

Need to make a grocery list tonight and hit the store tomorrow morning. Dil says the store is pretty much back to normal stock so we will see.

AS far as weed whackers go. I don't weed eat. I spray vegetation killer borders. LOL If the mower can't reach it , it gets sprayed. Saves lots of time and frustration from running out of string when I am the furthest from the supply spool. LOL
COWCHICK77, JCnGrace and Change like this.
