... if you're going to hang laundry on the line, do it before you wash it!
Ah, the fresh spring air...
This is one day's worth of pollen!
Probably time to refill the wiper fluid
Ah, the fresh spring air... make sure you close your vents!
This might make you cringe... but these are all allergy meds! Hubby's on the left, the kids' on the right, we've done raw honey for 5 years but it just wasn't doing much of anything by itself sadly, we even switched the type of honey (meaning the type of plants the bees were on), and so far I've only allowed myself the eye drops in the front, but I'm going to have to admit defeat. Considering that we don't really take meds for anything in our family, this is pretty shocking, I know. I will say however, these are not all taken at the same time, lots of them are trial and error with little notes scribbled on the side LOL, and it will be over with in a short 3-4 weeks for me, 6-8 weeks for the kids, but hubby will have it most of the summer as well since he also has grass sensitivities. I personally think our state may be a biological weapon (as in pollen) testing ground... it's all a conspiracy theory!
When I can see through my yellow pollen stained eyes, I see this, and I keep telling myself it's all worth it - right?!!
these surprise me every year, they pop up so fast
Yes, I'm sort of taking the day off today. No gardening, no lifting, but I did finish my first article of clothing for myself, a "simple wrap skirt" - not so simple! I really have a lot to learn about pattern sizing. This was too small, I was able to sort of fix it by tying it in the back instead of the side, and adding a button halfway down the leg to compensate for the lack of extra fabric in the wrap, but next time I will know those sizes are serious! Which means I'm a size 14. What the heck is with the discrepancies between commercially made/dept store clothing and patternmakers? I'm a consistent 8/10 in the conglomerate world yet I have to make clothes almost twice that size when I make them myself? This weekend I'm going to actually take my real measurements and write them down and actually use them next time instead of guessing.
Well, here it is anyways:
Of course I'm sporting my typical Marsha Brady style fabric. Although I guess I'm more of a Jan Brady, Marsha was way more put together than I am :) Now I can finally say I made something to wear!
Here's me waving bye-bye...
This was taken when I returned from running errands this morning and is from opening the storm door! Needless to say, I'm having to use the indoor dryer for laundry today.
Why do gardeners and outdoor people have to suffer through this allergy stuff? I think the indoor video gamer types should be stuck with it all instead.
