I’ve always been active and able to do what I wanted. I know I’m not getting any younger but my allergies have been terrible this year. I’ve had a stopped-up ear for over three weeks now, gone to the doctor, gotten a steroid shot and changed my allergy medications. Something needs to give. I want to work in my garden!
The iris are blooming and so is the nutsedge in the front! I’ve tried spraying it and so far it is green and lush. I know not to pull it. Master Gardeners say it only activates the roots and it grows more. But it is healthy and I’m not.
I long to get out and finish cleaning out my flower beds. I have two new tomato plants that need more sun but trimming the trees behind them seems impossible at this time. Maybe they came to the wrong house to live this year. I don’t like old age and being told what I can and can’t do.
Next week is the OWFI conference in Oklahoma City and writers from four states and beyond come to join like minds. I have more than one job to do at this conference and I am looking forward to it. I can’t poop out!
I should grab a mic and start singing “I Will Survive!” Maybe that would scare the allergies away.
How is your spring going?
