Life here is still strange. We went from winter weather straight to summer with temps in the 30s one day and the 80s the next. Everyone is sporting various shades of sunburn as none of us have had a chance to adjust. My coconut oil has gotten a bit of use moisturizing skin to protect and heal the dryness.
Of course, when you get to be of a certain age, which I am, you find yourself facing hot flashes. I am fortunate that I don’t have them year round, but it would be nice if mine cooperated and only affected me in the winter when I could turn the heat off. Instead, I only have hot flashes when it’s hot outside.
Friends and I tried a variety of solutions between us, and found the only one to work for all of us is bee pollen. That’s right a simple bee pollen capsule taken 2 -3 times per day is all it takes to end them. So off to the store I ran to get rid of my pesky problem.. Ah, so much better.
On another subject, with the return of “summer” dandelions are back with a vengeance. While I don’t mind, and actually enjoy seeing a field filled with yellow dandelions I don’t want them in my flower beds.
I happened to mention to my grand-daughter that dandelions are edible. Both the flowers and the leaves and people will eat them in their salads. Since that slip of the tongue to her we (which means not only my grand-daughter, but her mom, dad, myself and even her brother who spit them out promptly) have been eaten our fill of dandelions.
We have taught her to only eat from areas which we know haven’t been sprayed with anything, or maybe used by a dog for the bathroom. Which keeps her to her own back yard and my field!
So how are you? I will be home Sunday night with a working computer and will finally catch up on your lives as well. Until then, have a great couple of days.
