Along about 5 PM yesterday evening, I suddenly remembered why I don't work in the yard much. Sneezing, watery eyes, itchy ears and throat...Yeah...those. To make matters worse, I woke up in the middle of the night with my whole head clogged up. So clogged that I even the nasal spray seemed to have no effect.
Somewhere in the midst of it all, I picked up some poison ivy. Rub salt into my wounds, why doncha?
I was really tempted to stay home from church, but it was my day to open the library, so I toughed it out and went. Once, I got home, though, I didn't do anything else.
I read. I knit. I watched TV, and that's it.
I've still got a few trees to clean up, but I'm going to get some gardening gloves and pollen masks before I do them.
