Allergies are bothersome this springtime. Blustering winds are stirring pollen through the air ... and simultaneously through my nose. Even the dogs have allergies. Two vets have told me that if a dog consistently chews on his/her paws, it is a sign of allergies, most likely to the same allergens that effect humans. Dogs have their noses on the ground sniffing, sniffing, sniffing.

I must run now. Today is a busy, busy day here.

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.
