2762 Pollen Count

Remember 300 is all it takes to be considered EXTREMELY HIGH. Cars, outdoor furniture, and the walkways and streets are covered in the sperm of every kind of deciduous (lose their leaves in the fall) and coniferous (pine trees) tree right now. It's just like there has been a yellow snow fall. Jenn saw a dust devil yesterday made entirely of swirling yellow pollen. God bless those who struggle with allergies right now; it's the most difficult time of the year here.

Quiet day hanging out with Jewel. My left arm / shoulder that I hurt just before my surgery, is still bothering me, so I'm going to schedule an appointment with the orthopaedist to check it out more. It can be quite painful when it's rearranging itself -- that moment when it decides to CRACK as it slips in or out of place. I could live without that.

I talked to the lady at the art shop today and there are enough of us signed up to continue taking the art class. They are offering it on Monday now, which is a day that works MUCH better for me. I'm really glad of the change from Wednesdays. I'm glad I can continue with the art class. There's something exciting about learning a new skill. I'm just as happy learning about drawing as I was learning how to drive a bus. Yes, I have managed to learn how to drive a school bus, and can parallel park one on either the right or left side of the street even! I like learning.

I don't quite know what kind of physical breakthrough I've experienced, but I continue to feel some better today. That's two days in a row now! I still have limited energy, and will have to get a friend to drive me to Atlanta for a dental visit because even if I could drive all the way there, I'd be so exhausted I couldn't drive myself back home. I have a tooth that is threatening to break, so I want to get it looked at before it's a crisis. I'm thrilled to be feeling so much more like myself. Now, if I could just get rid of the thrush!

I hope you and those you love are well this day.

So glad to hear of your continuing to feel good! I wonder if Spring has anything to do with it?
