By the time we got home I felt worse so I ate lunch and then pawned the kids off on my dad and Donna and I headed to bed for an hour. After my nap, I went on a hunt for everyone. They were on a hike around the trails on the property. The property is about 105 acres. So, I walked up to the new house and the mason's told me they were walking the long way around back to the cottage so I "mantracked" them back towards the cottage and found them not too far away. We hiked the rest of the way home, some of it with Hope in my arms.
Back at the cottage, we had tea, read a bit and then heard Papa firing up the chainsaw so we headed back outside to watch and help load wood. After that was all done, the girls and I played restaurant outside for about another 30 minutes before we were called back to the new house to help unload the quartz countertops. Let's just say that clearly my muscles aren't too badly affected by my mystery illness because they stood up to the test this afternoon. Man, is quartz freakin' heavy!
Back through the mud once again to the cottage for supper and now I'm chillin' with some wine and soon I'll sit down with a hot back for my back and then put the kids to bed. I'll follow soon after.
Tomorrow: the Muskoka Wildlife Centre (a.k.a animal rescue centre).
