The rain has gotten the pollen off a lot of things. The runoff water is yellow with pollen as it goes to the ocean.
Today is an indoor day. There is not much that can be done outside in the rain. We do need it since April has been mostly dry which is unusual for this area. We are down rainfall by quite a bit. The winter was mostly dry as well.
I am plotting out the rest of the day. A couple of things changed around. Caroline’s flute lesson is today rather than on Monday. I don’t think she has Girl Scouts this week but I have to double check.
This weekend we have some plans but I hope to get some things down around here. Next weekend Ariel graduated from college and we have activities with that. I think we have a week between that Phoenix but maybe not. I honestly haven’t sat down with the calendar this month.
I can tell we are getting closer to the end of the school year. Our bowling leagues are wrapping up. Caroline’s activities are winding down except those that she does year round like Kung-Fu and Flute. Our afternoons and evenings are starting to free up.
Just in time for the end of the Fall/Winter/Spring TV season and the beginning of the summer TV season. Next week there are a lot of last episodes of seasons. We have had a couple of final episodes. It is interesting how the rise of cable has changed things on network TV as well. Seasons are different lengths. Some shows are 8-12 episodes in length. There are shows that don’t start up until January rather than September/October. They had to adapt because the cable networks were cutting into their ratings.
Allergy pressure is less today which is nice. Also not turbo sneezing is nice too.
Right now all the cats are in their usual spots getting ready for their morning nap. Stalin is curled up at my hip purring up a storm. That is my cue to get up and start doing something productive.
So here is to a productive day.
I am grateful for rain that brings the pollen count down from OMG to tolerable.
