The Cedars get a Haircut

It's a fine spring day.
I am giddy with excitement.
Instead of typing window sizes,
 I am going to get out 
in the fresh air.

I am going to inhale the cedar
and the honeysuckle.

I feel like posing for my senior picture.

Here I am standing in the tall grass
by this lovely tree.
It is going to be such a lovely day.

Here I am in allergy hell.
I had to take several breaks
with this cold wet bandana
over my swollen itching face.


We really did get a lot of tree trimming done
and it looks great!

No pain, no gain....right?
That's right!


  1. oh poor poor mom! How did i manage to not inherit that misery? I am so thankful that I didn't. . . I always think of the story you told about swimming lessons with a box of kleenex on the side of the pool. . . you are a serious trooper. How much longer before spring will be done torturing you? (posting on blogs makes me so insecure about my ability to spell)

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment! I am so sorry about your allergies...I understand I have them too! I am looking forward from many more visits and getting to know you! Have a great weekend and good luck!!



"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
