Pollenation has begun
We are covered.
It is crazy here. Pollen on everything. Samuel & I were out this morning at 7:30, spraying off the cars, the front porch, the walkway.
We went out at 11am, and you would have never known we had cleaned everything off just 3 and half hours earlier!!
Everything is that minty-yellow-y green. I keep forgetting this. I mean, I remember it, and *prepare* for it, but then it shows up and I forget how bad it really is. I forget how much work it is, and how it gets stuck in your throat when you are cleaning up after it, how it feels grimey and if the dogs are outside laying in the sun for a little while they, too get covered, how you open your windows to let the wonderful Spring breeze in and you stark white curtians are no longer stark white in a matter of 1/2 hour, and how you look out the window and WATCH IT MOVE, gliding across life and laughing at you because there is nothing you can do about it.
Okay, maybe its not laughing, maybe I am just slightly bitter.
But thankfully it doesn't last too long. Long enough, but not too long.
And so, we are out again, going to try to get rid of the mess.
I shouldn't complain, though. Nothing hurt this morning when I woke up.
That alone is worth it. :)
