On Sunday the weather got to a wonderful 76 degrees. A lovely spring day. I spent the day in a short-sleeved shirt pulling ivy off of my patio.
Today, at 1:30pm the temp is in the 20’s and we have a good six inches of snow on the ground (all since 9am), the snow is still falling, and… (this is the best part) I discovered that I have poison ivy.
Ya know, I couldn’t figure out why my arms were so itchy last night. Eidently not all the ivy roots I pulled out the other day were the pretty decorative type. Some of the roots were poison ivy roots – and evidently (as seen on both of my arms) the root can give you the itchy welts as well.
So… today I get to decide between scratching and shoveling… shoveling or scratching… shoveling while scratching… scratching while shoveling. I hope your choices are a little more exciting than mine today.
