It's That Time of Year Again

No, not just March Madness or taxes, it's pollen time.  We're running more than 1,000 parts per cubic meter and that's mainly tree pollen, next the grasses kick in.  I mowed the lawn for the first time yesterday and Mac said all he could see was a yellow cloud traveling around the lawn.  I had to change clothes when I came in I was so covered.

  3. Gosh you sound like you're suffering a bit there! Hope it soon dies down, we live in a farming area and suffer a bit at harvest but not as bad as this!

  4. It's the pollen that you can't see that is the worst! You have to laugh when they give the pollen counts, don't you? Oh well, we live through it every year...ACHOO!


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
