Sorry for the late posting folks but sometimes life gets in the way of art. I have been fighting Cedar Fever since last Thursday and Sunday was the worst day of the battle. Robert Mihaly asked me if Cedar Fever was like Hay Fever … my response was WORSE.
The cedar in my area usually doesn’t cause me to have allergic reactions when the pollen is flying, but last week we had several days of hot humid south winds that blew in the dreaded Red Cedar that tries to kill me.
Today I feel mostly human again … the only lingering symptom is being very tired and a wretched cough.
I have been diffusing my favorite Young Living essential oils to fight off the dreaded Red Cedar Pollen … RC and/or Eucalyptus Blue in the kitchen diffuser and SniffleEase with E. Blue in the bedroom.
Hopefully tomorrow will find the cough on the way out as well.
This week I am showing off the talents of several writers other than their writing … Cheryl Maggie and Joe Hesch are danged good photographers and Cheryl does amazing painted tiles. Enjoy their other talents this week.
Keep me in your thoughts, I have gone through some trying times the past several weeks and struggling a bit personally. This morning was the worst. My Grand Old Lady, my sweet Baby Girl, my Mama Kitty got out the door. I chased her for nearly an hour and poof … she disappeared. I haven’t seen her all day and it has been nearly 5 years since she has been an outdoor/indoor cat due to some health issues. I hoped she would turn up at dark, but nothing. I ask for her safety during the night and her return in the morning. Things are not safe in my neighborhood for roaming cats right now and I fear for not only her safety but her very life. However, her desire for the freedom of being outside was stronger than the comforts of being inside and pampered. I hope she enjoys her last bit of freedom because I don’t think I will ever see her again.
