I don’t know what’s causing it, but ever since last night, my allergies have been going crazy. I haven’t sneezed much, but my nose itches and burns; my eyes are itchy, and my sinus cavities under my eyes have a little pressure in them. I did notice on the way to and from the gym today that those awful-smelling blooming shrubs are starting to bloom. Not sure if that might be it or not.
I did go by Wal-Mart and get the dirt I’d mentioned in my post earlier this morning, but I wound up getting a few flowers as well. After lunch, I may go outside for just a couple of hours and do some stuff here and there before coming in to work on the computer. It’s just too pretty of a day to be couped up inside!
Speaking of lunch, I am eating my leftover turkey burger patty from yesterday with a side salad and these pecan nut-thins made by Blue Diamond. They are AMAZING! I literally go through a box of these a week now. Rather than using bread for lunch, I substitute these (like today). Alex hates them, but then, Alex hates pecans. I have a friend who tried them once and loved them too. Her words: “best crackers ever!” So, if you like pecans, you should definitely give them a try. I stumbled across them last summer when trying to find a good cracker substitute during my whole phase when I wanted to go gluten free (due to yeast allergies). I haven’t found them in my local Wal-Mart, but they are available in the gluten-free section at Publix.
