Motivational Issues

I should be planting...
Or Disking...
Yesterday Morning I was working ground.
This morning I am less enthused.
I have acres to plant 85 + 85 +20 + 40 + ours (50-100). These fields are spread out over 15 miles or so.
The Dairy fellow wants to chop grass silage at the end of the week.
I have to help at daughter's school fund raiser auction this Saturday. Next Saturday we are going on a trip. We may visit Zetawoof. Or at least honk randomly when we get within 20 miles.
The silage chopper and truck are not ready.
My helper got the mower almost ready yesterday but he was not doing well by 7 p.m. and I don't expect him early today.
Yesterday I planted another four acres of Flax. have been planting a few acres at a time as the field dries out.
The problem is I have not felt good for a month or so.
I am tired, I have sinus issues, I can't think clearly, I have no motivation.
For example.
I looked all over for the last six bags of Flax seed from the variety I started planting. I couldn't find them and assumed I planted them. Yesterday I found them on a pallet. I think someone unloaded them from my pickup but I don't know. I try to be careful not to unload seed onto anything but the pallet it came off of.
The strange thing about this is I know several other people with the same symptoms. It is some sort of strange virus or radiation poisoning or something.
It ain't my usual depression because 10,000 mg of Vitamin D made no difference.
AND now I am going to work.


  1. If you were not such a young sprout I would say you are having senior moments. Get to work, the rest of us need the food so we can relax.

    Grace and peace.

    1. But you don't eat annual ryegrass...
      Well there is the barley...

  2. At least I have an excuse, frozen ground and snow everywhere. I wondered if I had stumbled onto one of your old postings from last summer when you mentioned grass silage. I'm still feeding cows with last years hay. No new grass in the near future here. Its not too depressing, as long as I don't think about it.

    1. My neighbor cut hay.
      I think it is going to rain but she hopes not. She think I might help her stack it this weekend. It is good to have hope...

  3. Budd, it sounds like you either need more coffee or more whiskey; I'm not sure which. However, since you'll be operating machinery, I guess you better stick with the coffee.

    1. Nice jar lid. I'd leave you feedback but I am writing a blog post.

  4. I'm a believer in B vitamins for energy. Don't worry about the forgetfulness problem, I've had it for most of my life. I guess now I have an excuse.

  5. By all means drop by if you're in the area. I work at home so I'm always here. Call ahead and I'll put on pants.

    1. I will try to wear short pants and Keen sandals so everyone knows I am on vacation.

  6. Must be all that radiation from the Japanese reactor. Do you feel a little warmer than usual?
    Had another thing to post, but I forgot it. Maybe next time.

    1. I have noticed that here is an erie green glow at night but I though it was just all the smokers from Washington using their medical MJ cards...
