Ugh! It's been a busy week, i saw the doc & got some pain relief for the first time in over a month as the constant pain although at a bearable level was just sapping my energy and was emotionally draining.
Since taking 2 pills a day I've resprayed the whole property by hand 8 litres at a time 120 litres in total 3 days, mowed 1 acre with the ride on before the belt burnt out then finished another 3 acres with the whipper snipper. I was really looking forward to kicking back and relaxing when my brother in law rang to inform me the enclosed car trailer i filled with parts to make room in the shed is going to Adelaide next weekend for modifications so i need to empty it again. Yesterday i did the car shuffle again to make some room putting the smallest car under the house verandah, the Malloo in the shadiest spot in the paddock and the VT on the trailer.
Last night the inlaw rings again and informs me the trailer will now be picked up sometime Wednesday which is now tomorrow so this is one time i am wishing tomorrow never comes.
It originally took me 3 days to load the trailer and took nearly 3 weeks for my body to recover.
I don't mind doing it as eventually all this effort will lead to better health and more resilience but for now it's a huge pain in the arse because it's hot, damn hot and getting hotter so i guess instead of sitting here whinging i best get stuck in and get it done, it won't do itself and there's nobody to palm it off to. Chow for now folks n let the fun begin.

Currently this is nothing but a faded memory although those in nsw and qld may find it currently extremely accurate.

Wrecked and ruined, got frustrated with ongoing pain and lack of progress around the property so after nearly 2 months without resorting to pain killers i requested some from my doc. Wish granted and pill taken as soon as i got home. 6 hours and beers later i've hand sprayed 80 litres of weed killer which covered 90% of the 12 acres all while in my usual bare footed state which unfailingly identifies where the 3 corner jacks are. Today i can barely move and although i can't feel them the arches of the soles of my feet are shredded with fine cuts and perforations. I'm exhausted, chronically sore and stiff but glad to have pushed so hard as hopefully two more tanks and there should be little need to spray again until spring. Hopefully i will recover fairly rapidly and keep keeping up with all the other chores before finding time for my ever lengthening list of personal projects.

Came up to the house after finishing a job and the boys are home from work sitting with their phones surfing the net and shows the other (my youngest son) a gif saying "wow now that's a hot chick and gets the reply "hell yeah" as i wandered past behind them on my way to the kitchen. The physical jolts and looks of horror on both their faces especially my sons (the other one dropped the phone) was priceless when i said "son take a closer look at her face that's a gif i made of your mother i made in 83. Priceless.

At least change the date. Gifs weren't introduced until 1987.

Aussie stuff.
Heavy rains across Central Australia have brought about the ephemeral phenomenon of tiny shield shrimps hatching from years of obscurity in the middle of the desert. Yet these shrimps are more sea monkey than edible foodstuff. "They're not a true shrimp," expert Michael Barritt told ABC Radio Darwin ...

Those shield shrimp are incredible how fast they grow. I remember seeing puddles full of them on top of Uluru years ago.
