Clearing Brush at the Ranch

Saturday, April 27, 2013

I was going to spend 3 days at the ranch clearing brush, but I ended up coming back after only a day of work because of a serious sinus infection (bad enough that I was coughing up blood!). Although this trip wasn't as enjoyable as most, I certainly feel good about the work that gets done. This trip was to extend a trail, both for the wildlife and for us to be able to explore more of our 100 acres. Attached are a few "before and after" pictures of the work I did on Wednesday.

I wish I could say that I lost weight after all of the work, but I tend to overeat when I work that hard...

    Good job done, especially as you weren't feeling 100%. Glad that the anti-b's are doing the trick. Take care of yourself x

    Wow! Glad you stopped to take care of you. That's pretty scary! Hope you're on the mend now.

    PS - Great job on the brush so far. 100 acres... whew! That's a lot of ground to clear.

    Nice pictures. The sinus infection sounds serious enough to see a Doctor. Hoping you'll have a full recovery soon.

    Wow, you were busy! As for the sinus infection, it's nothing to fool around with. I hope you see a doctor and get on some antibiotics.

    Oh thank you so much for the pictures for this visual one... awesome work...100 acres is quite a bit of area to make paths through!!! So are they just for walking or do you have a four wheeler or jeep for "touring"?
    So sorry about the sinus infection and short trip...but thankful for the progress...Now take good care and get better, check on anti-inflammatory foods and methods and GET BETTER!!! God bless.

    If you are working hard you need some extra calories (unless you're going crazy with the wrong kind of foods). Plus those multiple muscles you used are going to keep burning fat long after the work is over, so it's a win-win either way. And wow! What a lot of work you got done, and beautiful property. :)

    Don't forget to do some stretching before you sleep or you'll be sore as all get out in the morning. And I agree you should go to a doctor about that sinus infection: They can be deadly.

    Have a great weekend!

    Love the photos! Working the land certainly provides great fitness minutes! Seems when you live in warm weather, everything grows a little more than I'm ready to trim. The sinus infection sounds serious enough to see a doctor. Sure hope it clears well. Fortunately, my two or three (home) lots can be worked in smaller fitness segments easily so I can spread it out over the week with some of my gentler (non sweaty) workouts. May good health be yours and your loved ones! Hug, hug -- Evelyn
