One of the joys of living in Hotlanta is how beautiful it is in the spring. Really, it's spectacular. But then there is the pollen.
pollen count. It is 2,967, and I think it will go higher - I've seen pollen counts as high as 6,000 here. One year when the pollen was at this level, I was stuck at a dead stop in downtown traffic and had a major asthma attack. (I carry an inhaler at all times now - I'm not repeating that horror.)
We are living on Claritin here. And using lots of tissues. Even the cats are sneezing, poor things. And this is part of the reason.
I've been cleaning and relaxing on my time off. I've tried to organize my HDT - more on that another time - and I'm getting Curly's old room ready to paint a soothing blue. And I've been working on the Kittie blankie.
Cisco, my big kitty, brought us a present this morning. I found it on the doorstep of the front door, beheaded. Yes, Cisco killed the Easter Bunny. The head was next to it, leaving us ALL the good parts. Um, thanks?
I will be kind and not show you the picture. Cisco has no remorse about this. In fact, he can sleep peacefully. Sophie doesn't seem perturbed either.
