We’ve all heard that little Pun, “A little hard work never hurt anyone.” Yeah, but I bet those people who made that statement, didn’t know anything about the world that we know now.
We should work and enjoy that work. We should work hard but not over do it. Over doing it creates injury. Much like I have now.
Some of you know this, some of you don’t, but I have a Hernia. Doesn’t hurt,so I’m not really worried about it. I’ve also used it as an excuse to become lazy. No more.
Working hard feels great, many fitness trainers can attest to that. What doesn’t feel good, is working yourself so much that you’re exhausted at the end of the day. You know what I mean. Working 10-12 hour days, come home, then all you want to do is eat and slep.
If you workout too hard, you could end up getting a Hernia, or even a herniated disk in the spine. What about knee injury? What about hip injuries?
Even just plain hard work can cause injuries when you’re not careful. Depends on how fit you are and how active you are. This is why it’s important to work your way up at a pace you can handle.
How does this correlate to lessons in life? When we’re trying to become successful, people often work long hours, even swing shits, this puts unnecessary strain on the body. Take a break, take a step back. Let your body rest, or at least build up your endurance for such task.
Working harder, for longer hours, isn’t always better. That’s not getting you ahead. In fact, it may even be pushing you back, taking years off your life. There is a great quote……
“Work smarter, not harder.” Take that to heart.
Silly puns. Don’t even get me started on “The Lord Is My Shepherd.”
What are some of the puns that you’ve noticed are silly? What are your favorites? Some of them are actually funny jokes. Go ahead, make us laugh.
Woke up early this morning to head out to the acre we have to work and plant some Sugarcane. Working several hours during the day is more than enough outside activity for me.
I’ve gotten enough Sun today that it could last me all week. Ok, maybe not, but I worked hard today. Dug one entire 50ft strip without stopping. It was as deep as the shovel tip, so I had to really work at it.
Shoveling is a great back work out. If you’re out of shape, try shoveling for about 20-30 minutes. You’ll start to feel it.
My Uncle brought us lunch out there, Fried Chicken, yum. Popeyes has the best Chicken, in my opinion. KFC, just isn’t good anymore and they’re expensive.
Needless to say, we got three rows of Sugarcane planted. This batch is aChewing variety. The next batch we’ll be planting is a Syrup variety.
Something I found out is, Rum is made with Sugarcane, so I just might experiment with that for home use.
Seems like I’ve gotten enough exercise regardless today. Feeling pretty tired right now. Might be heading to bed early tonight.
Some people don’t get enough Sun, I’m actually one of them. That’ll be one thing I’ll be working on in the next few months.
Is it just me, or is there something about Sugarcane that makes you drowsy? Today is my 30th Birthday. I spent the most of yesterday and today traveling and learning about Sugarcane.
What was the topic? Weed control, of all things. The ironic thing? Sugarcane is actually a very tall grass, and the most common form of weed control when it comes to Sugarcane? Grass. Why is this ironic?
Supposedly, the absolute best way to manage weeds in your Sugarcane patch is, get this, digging it out by hand. Gasp. There are other options of course, but seriously? I could have told you that. And I’m not a Gardener.
So, how was my weekend? For starters, I had a headache yesterday. I think it was Sinus Congestion related, so we picked up some cold medicine. Why? Cold medicine is good for relieving congestion. Now, if only that would work on traffic congestion?
Needless to say, the cold medicine didn’t work, so I had a headache most of the day and had to sleep it off. Next time, I’m getting the Allergy/Sinus pills and taking some headache pills.
I thought about taking my camera, but there wasn’t really much to take pictures of. Nothing worth while anyway. There was one building that would have been worth the effort, but alas, no camera.
So, between driving to the Sugarcane, loading it up, and driving back from the Sugarcane, it’s been a pretty taxing trip. Enjoyable, despite the headache, but taxing. I was really tired last night, not sure I even slept. Not doing much today has made it another tiring day.
I did however learn about something that I’m going to do a bit more research on. A religion called Santeria, that actually still practices animal sacrifices today. They do mention though, that 99% of the animals they sacrifice, end up eaten. The other thing that I learned about? Tiger Lizards. Those things are ferocious and strong for their size. Both worth looking into.
Being my birthday, we stopped at Outback Steakhouse on the way home. I had the No Rules Parmesan pasta with Grilled Shrimp and Scallops. It was pretty good, especially the shrimp.
It’s great to be back home though. Let’s see how tonight’s sleep goes. That was my weekend in a nutshell. How was yours?
