spt



LOVE this time of year. love, love, LOVE! highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s. perfectly comfortable throughout the day. wanting a cardigan in the evenings. open windows and breezes through the curtains. the hum of tree frogs. freshly scraped knees from endless bike rides.

no bugs. no humidity.

but the pollen. oh, the pollen...
for me, it's trees. oak trees and pine trees, covering the world (and my eyes! and nose!) with their yellow-y, dust-y presence. i use more contact lenses in april than i do throughout the rest of the year.

for all of you who are suffering (not so silently) along with me, i offer a heart-felt "gesunheit!"



Spring also brings a lightening of my heart, an emotional cleanse that seems to coincide with the shedding of heavy clothes. i can't help but look forward on a sunny Spring day, lifting my face to gentle rays of warmth. i want to move my body and still my heart.

on a day like today, i believe i just might be superwoman.

oh Lelly.....I gave an "achoo!" on my spt......but mine wasn't clever like yours! ;)
Along with the sneezes, I must check for ticks.
Thanks, Lel. I'd only plop on the grass without a quilt for YOU! :)

I love it -- not the allergies, but the sneeze picture. My spring allergies took a reprieve my first year here, but they found me this spring. I hoped to leave no forwarding address for those!
