Allergies are goin gang busters. I made it up to early morning, Sunday June 8th, without more than a random sneeze. I took a Zyrtec...my allergies laughed at it and pissed on it. Or that's what it seemed like they did. Continued today..post nasal drip (my personal FAVE grr), gland hurts b/c of the post-nas-drip, itchy throat. Runny/stuffy nose filled with itching and irritation. The common areas of the subdivision all being mowed didn't help in the least. I wanted to run over the guy with the weed whacker that seemed to REALLLLY like my sidewalk..he must have come back 4 times to make sure it was done right. Then again, I was out there bending over planting flowers, surely my buttcrack showing..maybe that had something to do with it. Hey, whatever I can do to help men less fortunate than mine... LOL I digress...so anyway, on the way to work the farmers were out spraying their crops..oh sweet Jesus save me. I love the country, but for some reason it detests me.
Got to work looking like hell..Corinne just stared at me. I said, "What?" She said, "Oh nothing...did you..go camping?" LOL Then her dad came in and told me I looked like I was in pain and asked what was wrong with me. Eh deb de deb de dab de shove off, ya hea'? (that's my porky pig imitation) Corinne later told me she gave Donny (her hubby) some Reishi drops on Saturday and it helped his..I said, something to the effect of HAND IT OVER AND NO ONE GETS HURT..chugged it. It did take the edge off..hopefully it will help even more in the next few days as it builds up in my system. Plus, maybe it will keep me from having to take any medication which I am always up for.
OK, onto better things..like the pictures you saw at the top o' the blog. The first one shows you something miraculous. A dwarf fruit tree!! I've begged Chris since we were dating to let me have a fruit tree one day. He always replied with a kind and loving and gentle, "NO. I hate those things..always had to pick up the fruit when I was a kid off of my Mom's trees." To which I said, "So? Why do I have to pay for that??" To which he replied with something like, "Oh, you're right sweet perfect wonderful angelic honey, I love you, get whatever you want..you're the best. And, while we're at it, we'll buy you a farm and some cute lil animals to go with it. Come here and give big Daddy a hug." Oh, wait..that's not what he said. He said, "NO" and then would give me "the look". Well, yesterday when faced with a whole family pleading with him to please let Mommy get the dwarf apple tree, he gave in :) May have had something to do with it being cheaper than the other tree I wanted by quite a large margin. But, we don't think of those things.
Anyway, brought my new baby home and planted her right away in front of my living room window. Partly so I can watch it grow and see beauty outside of my window and partly so I can spy on, and beat the tar out of the kids who try to steal my apples. Sounds like a good thing to me!
So, the first pic is of my baby. The second pic is of my baby with her new family. She has joined one other weird tree/bush type thing, lots of other bushes and my big oak (probably) tree. I think she will be very happy in her new home. Today I planted pretty flowers all along the side of the house. If you look close you can see them. They are baby pink and then the other ones are mostly green but have tiny little purple flowers. But, in other news, the pansies and stuff that I planted last year in the normal flower bed have gone INSANE! All of those that you see have come back from last year..I didn't plant even ONE new one! AND, they have multiplied in mass quantities! I'm so in love. Now, quit looking closely at the picture or you'll also see all the weeds that I'm too lazy to pull. Stop it, I said!
Well, I'm itching way too much to continue this. Have a good night. I'm gonna go take a melon baller to my throat and scoop out everything I can get my hands on.
Oh yeah, and the dentist went well..nothing like the crackheads at Aspen Dental.
