I woke up this morning with a pretty good sized area that is very swollen, under my left eye!! For the past few days I have been rashing out here and there on my arms and wrists. An occasional small swelling will show up too on my wrists. I should have paid attention to it and taken the dreaded Benadryl that makes me so sleepy. Now I look like I have been in an accident! It’s not a good look. I think I scared a customer that came to the door a few minutes ago! Glad I don’t have to be anywhere today! My allergies, which I have been experiencing for about 9 months now, off and on, are a mystery to me and my doctors. I need to have an expensive blood work done to see if it is a result of my immune system. I cannot afford that right now but will have to have it done sometime soon I am sure.
Fall is on it’s way finally!! Although you would never know it here in Maine. The temps have been in the 90’s for the past two days and we broke some more records in the weather books. This year has been record breaking in many ways. I am harvesting my garden slowly. I am really pleased with the amount and quality of my pumpkins. I just cooked up some of the yellow corn and froze that. It was delicious. I still need to harvest the carrots by digging them up this year. I let the weeds take over in that area of the garden so I probably have NO carrots….we’ll see. My kids love to dig those up.
The kids are coming out here on Saturday. Bobbie and I are having the whole family over for a day of eating and visiting. An end of the summer gathering. I have been getting tomatoes from the garden but most are still green! I will never grow Roma’s again….they are too dry. The popcorn is beginning to show ears but it will still be a while. There won’t be many. I made the mistake of growing that corn in one single row. It should have been two…one beside the other. It needs that for seeding. Next year!
As soon as I get my camera charged up, I will take photos and show you what I mean. I must get pictures before this Saturday, when everyone will be going home with a basket of garden goodies. It’s a tradition!!
Please, everyone keep our friend Dawn, from C & G Design in your prayers for a speedy recovery from her surgery and a cancer free life from here on end. She is a very strong and brave girl but certainly our prayers can’t hurt. I hope you are all well. This Benadryl is kicking in and making me very sleepy so it’s time to sign off. Stay well and be happy. .~~.
