I Will Never Garden Again
This past Friday I decided to clean up the landscaped area of my backyard. I should point out that I am an indoor person and never attempt to do yard work...I kicked off the shoes and stepped in to start pulling, clipping, and piling up anything that I thought may be a weed. Two hours later I had 4 piles of debris for my DH to discard. I retreated to my favorite place...inside the house. Saturday AM my DH woke with traces of poison ivy on both wrists. Unlike me, he was wearing gloves. I woke and was just fine, that is until late Saturday evening when both arms were covered!! By Monday it had spread to my face sending me right to my doctor. She referred to it as "severe" poison ivy ~ can't say I am surprised as I was basically "playing" in the mess for 2 hours. Fortunately the medication is working and I am slowly recovering. Sadly the oils from my hand spread the poison ivy somewhere in my house, most likely the door handles, and now both of my sons are on medication for a mild case of this nasty ailment!
I have refrained from stitching as I really do not feel much like doing that. I would imagine that in the next few days my desire will return and I will continue to stitch on my many exchange projects.
I will be heading to my Vermont house on Friday where I will spend the summer. I will Blog via the wireless laptop, but it is dreadfully slow so my entries may be minimal.
As always, I am glad that you stop by and love that you comment!
