After a long winter I am thrilled to have a real spring this year. Every thing is growing, pollinating, and blooming. I love it!
But. . .I am one of the many unfortunates who also have many allergies. That means that while I delight in the beauty of the season, can hardly wait each winter for spring to come, and love, love flowers and the flowering trees, I pay for time spent outdoors with allergies.
I have learned to mostly keep my house closed up and depend upon the air conditioner to cool it when temperatures rise. That way I can spend some time outdoors and then come inside to escape the allergens. That, plus Zyrtec, keeps me in pretty good shape. But, sometimes, I just want to open some windows. And then I pay for it.

wearing 3/4 length sleeves!
That medication is definitely on my "Never Take This Stuff Again" list!
