What a week! The pool in our communitee opened up on Saturday, so Starting Sunday, I Swam every single day. EIther in our pool or at Oak Harbor's. We dont have a good aquarobics class here, so I go in to O.H. for their's. I also have discovered the Sauna. I have always pooh-poohed it...why would anyone want to go in and sweat? Well the sauna at OH is a dry sauna and the heat after swimming for 2 hours just soaks right into your bones and I felt like a new person after I got out. We have a sauna here, too, and they keep it VERY hot, around 180 F. (too hot) and they also allow water on the stones. I cant do that. But if no one else is in there, I can keep it dry. Wonderful!!!!
I also have a "happening" on my face. Started out as a lump under my right ear, and felt like a big golf ball...I thought maybe Mumps...????? then it spun off another lump right in front of my ear about the size of a pecan, then another formed on my temple and another on my brow and then two smaller ones on my scalp. Now these did not hurt unless I pushed on them, and I felt fine. Then the one on my brow grew bigger and started to jurt, I must have scratched it in my sleep, because it got really red and hurts like hell. Now it has grown to encompass my right eye. It itches like mad, and is so swollen!! It looks like I have been in a bar brawl!! I have No idea what it is, but it can leave anytime it is ready...preferably NOW!!! :( THe lump under my ear has gone way down, and it seems to have manifested itself into one lumpy thing a ma jig on my brow/eye. Naturally, there are no Dr Offices open on the weekend, and I am not gonna pay 500.00 for an emergency room visit, when All they will tell me is go see the Dr on Monday. SO here I sit, one eyed, and not itching as much because I took two Benedryl tabs. Sure am getting sleepy though.
Summer finally arrived here. GOt up into the 80's in Seattle, and the 70's here on the Island. SUNSHINE!!!! WHOOT!!! But the clouds are blowing in from the ocean, and there is another cold bite to the wind. did not last long, our summer. But that may be ok. I cant do the heat too much. 70-75F is just about right for me providing there is not much Humidity!
I wish my camera worked, I would take a picture of the weeds growing in my gutters!!! The birds must have taken bird seed up on the roof and now it is growing...and my gutters are about 12" tall!!! I am not kidding...Hey Blogeois, wanna come work on my house?
Brent, I sure hope you are keeping your feet dry up there in Des Moines!! I am thinking about you and your family. ANd of course Kim and hers, and then we need to watch out for Brenda when the water gets that far down river. It surely has been a rough year weather wise, hasn't it? I hope all you Forigners are not having it as bad as we are.
Let's see what Tomorrow brings...
