All Day Job!
I had put this job off as long as I could! It was beginning to look like no one lived here. Let me just say that the weeds are thriving! Hot and Dry doesn't bother them in the least! It was a really hard day but I got it mowed, weedeated, raked, even had to weed eat a rather large bed in the center of yard that STILL needs mulch. After all that I got out the pump up sprayer, poured in some strong herbicide my husband got from a farmer friend and proceeded to spray. OK, done, sit down by pool, in the shade and read for a little while,,,,NOT gonna happen. The itching and pin prickly feeling started on my feet, spread to ankles, on up legs. Scratched, scratched, scratched, take a bath, take a benedryl, sit back down. Wait a few minutes, NO RELIEF. By then I am about to take my skin off scratching so hard. Take another bath, take another benedryl, and wait. Gets somewhat better. Got out the Aloe After Sun Gel and used half a bottle, the coolness seemed to help. Finally got better, but the bad thing is, I don't know what caused it. Weedeating or spraying. I will dress for the occasion next time. Shorts and flip flops just aren't appropriate.
Today I am staying indoors. I think a manicure is called for and maybe read awhile, cause I am still tired.
Hope you all have a good Friday!
