On Energy Ebbs and Flows:

Mountain Man and I have been sick. I have been in bed with a headache, body aches, sore throat, ear ache and a fever. Mountain Man had a fever for six hours and tells me he has aches and pains.

I have managed to knit half of a wash cloth while he has built a waist high stone wall across a good part of the north side of the garden.

The arbor you can see in the garden is for his gourds. Those are mostly birdhouse gourds in the picture.

And the damaged bush like thing in the foreground is dragon flower.

How does he get off with being in bed for six hours and I have been in bed for a few days? Where does he get his energy from to build a wall when I break out in a pant walking to the bathroom and back?

Yes, he slept through the mouse ordeal while I was awake that night before we became ill. No, he doesn’t wear his hearing aid to bed. And I get rewarded from my sleepless nights by getting sicker because I wasn’t well rested to fight it off.

I am feeling much better this morning. I’m going to class tonight but I’m heading to bed as soon as I come home. I’ll let you know how it went tomorrow.
