I so love this time of the year! I love the flowers blooming, the bees buzzing, the weather warming. All of it. I just can’t get enough. The rest of my family can’t wait to see it disappear. They hate it… with a passion. They are miserable as the pollen blows gracefully through the air and straight into their lungs. My husband has tried just about every allergy remedy possible from medication to eating local honey to using some sort of sinus rejuvenation oil (which makes him smell like a walking eucalyptus tree). His new relief of choice is to close all of our windows and doors as if we’re in a lockdown. No air in. No air out. As a spring and nature lover (and strongly despised by my husband for not being allergic to anything), the thought of this confinement is awful. I have pleaded with my dear husband for many years to buy outdoor furniture, so that we could sit outside and enjoy the sunny California weather and beautiful flowers, but I have yet to convince him. I guess what’s the point of spending hundreds of dollars on outdoor furniture that no one else will dare sit in, but myself.
So for all of you who share the same allergic sentiments against spring as my family, please do enjoy spring behind closed doors and windows in the comfort of your homes and behind a computer screen. I’ll brave the elements and share with you as much as I can of all that is growing (and blowing) outside.
P.S. If any of you have any great allergy remedies, please do share. I’m sure my husband will thank you!
