So It Begins

I got a bonus present for my birthday, another fucking cold.
I felt it coming on Sunday night and true to form, I am in bed today, hacking and coughing, tickle in the throat, my head is completely plugged up and I have a sinus headache just for fun.
I hit the Nyquil after I woke up this morning with all the above, plus my eyes were glued shut with crusty shit.

Yay.

I got up at noon and started to drive to work and stopped at the nearest convenience store to get some kind of cold remedy, oh fuck no.
By the time I got out of there, my head was pounding and I was sneezing and hacking constantly.

I am so sick of being sick!

I finally had some relief about an hour ago.
I spent some time on line looking at seed outfits, the garden bug is biting me too. I tried to order some on line but fer some damn reason, it wouldn't take my card even though there is enough mony to cover it easily. The damn thing has been giving me fits lately when I try to swipe it too. Fuck that noise.

I dragged my narrow ass out of bed and went three blocks down the road to the Feed Store and collected quite a variety of seeds for this coming Spring.

I also got a wild hair up my ass and bought 50 fucking pounds of something that I am going to have to get my shit together to process and store but hey,I got it out of the way at least.

While I was online earlier, I also surfed around a site called LocalHarvest Dot Org that you can use to look around anywhere in the country to find local farms and farmers markets and actually found a lady less than a mile from me who sells fresh eggs, the occasional chicken and manure to compost. Quite the score if she emails me back.
Check it out.

Anyway another round of uncontrollable hacking is upon me and I can feel a fever too. I am going to see if I can't burn this off.

Got seeds?
If not, they are forecasting shortages for some seed types, food shortages in general and who knows what the fuck else here in the near future. I don't need a tin foil hat, I don't trust these motherfuckers anyway.
Get off yer ass, I did.

    Get you some Sambucol tablets, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin C. Take every morning for 2 weeks. It will lessen the severity, and will "immunize" you against further attacks.

    That said, Dayqull works real good during the day.

    Busted -

    I got the gardening bug bad, too, and a cold too. Get outta my head! (I bought the 'Paul Robeson' tomato seeds to try this year, if it ever stops raining...)

    Um, please realize that chicken manure should lie fallow dug in or on top, for 3 months before you plant. Steer manure, you can dig into your plot, and plant right away. There's some fucking science for this, but you'll have to google it up, I sure ain't gonna, I already know it!

    You ever get the recent package? Music, that is?

    Aside from all that, get well, quit yer bitchin, and be thankful you got a job you CAN take time off from, when you ARE sick . . . what the hell shit are you GETTING germs from, every time you go to party?

    Kids in schools are THE biggest germ makers and spreaders . . . are you around kids?

    Ah hell, happy post hatchling, get well, and don't use chicken manure unless you know what yer doing.

    Them local eggs, though, THAT sounds delish . . . some onion, garlic, a lil basil, or oregano and chili serrano's, with sausage or beef or pork or chicken. That's dinner, smeared over some corn bread, or grits, or taters . . . or toasted bread . . . shut up and eat!

    OK, old fashion way: 3-4 drops of distilled water on full glass (250 grams) of vodka (any kind), 3 times a day before meal. Please do not overuse distilled water - might diminish overal healing power of this cocktail.
