Still Itchy . . .

The rash is going but I'm still itchy. I look pretty silly going out in public because I wear very dark socks (knee high) and long sleeves, if possible. Otherwise, people stare or edge sloooooooooowly away. When I do something, even poison sumac, I do it right. :)

June is the month of Graduations and we've had two. My nephew, Bret, graduated from Southern State Community College. My niece, Heather, graduated from high school and is now happily touring Europe with her Dad and sister, Jenny. I'd envy her except she also has a bad case of poison ivy - a mishap in the woods. Don't ask me to explain more. I figure mine could always be worse, I could have it where she does.

Today is a good day, despite the itches. I finished the ms. for Snipped in the Bud and printed it out! It came out at 99 pages which is three more than I need. Tomorrow, I'll print out the cover letter, gardening tips to include in the book and mailed it off to the contest. It took three months longer than I anticipated, but it is now DONE.

I also got an assignment from a newspaper---I'm suppose to be researching something called, "monk's herb" or "chasteberry." I haven't a clue.

Itch, itch. . . .

You poor love! I was hoping you would be all better by now. How long does this horrid itching last?

Sending much sympathy but NO hugs as I am sure I would start itching immediately, at least psychologically! LOL Hope all this clears up soon. Sounds like you are very busy. <----cheering you on
