Welcome Summer!

The joys of opening the pool and keeping it clean.
Picking up all the towels and pool toys.

The joys of going picking, the blueberries were awesome this year!

Keeping the flowers from wilting,

by watering them morning and night.
We've gotten no rain and the temps are in the 90's.

The heat came on fast this year.
Hoping for some relief, until then.
I will water morning and night.

Here is to many lazy summer days!
Happy Summer!

Itch, Itch...

After working around the yard. I seem to have gotten some poison ivy. Funny thing. I think it's going away, but just seems to spread. Had it since last Monday. It started on my forehead and then my scalp. It was awful.
I just want it to go away. I've bought lotions, sprays, and even some pills to take the itch away. Nothing seems to be helping. I've tried everything except pour bleach on the infected areas. Which someone did suggest. I haven't even given that tip a thought.
What do you do when you get poison ivy? Have any homemade recipes or cures?
Would love to hear!

At least the gardens are weeded and cleaned up for a bit. Next time, I'll be on the lookout to avoid it. But honestly, I didn't see any.

Enjoy your week!
