The Sun Has Returned

After days of steady rain (3/4 of an inch in 3 hours, yesterday), the sun has finally returned to my little corner of the world.

I would be a little more excited, but the much delayed spring rains have triggered some sinus issues for Little Sprout and myself. We go through this every spring and fall. Unbelievably, I just checked and realised that I posted about allergy season on exactly this date last year! If having the exact same symptoms on exactly the same date every year isn't support for my theory that this is allergies instead of a cold, I don't know what is.

I don't mind allergies so much. I know they only last a week or so. I just wish that having my sinuses completely blocked didn't block my brain as well.

I have renewed hope that my crochet hooks will re-appear. Last night, Mr. Barefoot found Little Sprout's "spice-goat" (kaleidoscope) under the couch after several days of it being missing. Earlier in the day I had found Big Sprout's lost earrings. I am hoping that the perverse little imp that has been snitching our stuff will decide that my crochet hooks can be returned, as well.

Regardless, it is a beautiful day and I intend to enjoy as much of it as I can. I am off to visit the parents today, and am considering ditching my nap before work so I can work on getting a little more Vitamin D out in the sun....

I heard that this is the worst year for allegeries everywhere. My nose and eyes have been running for months. It could be the house dust?

I am glad that you are having a beautiful day. I hope that you find the lost crochet needles and other things that are lost.

Enjoy the day and stay happy.

We had a terrible pollen season in Central Virginia and it started nearly two weeks early because of the hot spell in March that started everything blooming early. The good news was that we got everything (trees, grass) all at once, so it ended faster than usual. Hope yours will do the same!! Good luck.
