Sheltering in Place – Day 59

I had a lovely day today. So much so, I shall wax poetic and quote Robert Browning: The lark’s on the wing, the snail’s on the thorn…Well, that’s pretty yucko.  What’s this with the snail? I say bring on the snail bait, and let’s end his geranium-eating days. That being stated,  I shall now begin again and use my own words, lofty tho they may not be. I had a lovely day today. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, a breeze was blowing, and I got a new chapter done on my book. All of them excellent reasons to have a good day. But the biggest reason is I called my doctor and got some suggestions about what to do for my allergies. It may all be over the counter stuff, but changing this and adding that seems to be doing the trick. However, that’s the easy part. A little tougher is keeping the Hepa air purifier and the humidifier continually running full tilt in the bedroom. Both are on the noisy side, no matter what the ads say. Many advertisers claim their products are quiet, but maybe ‘quiet’ is a relative thing. Being in a bedroom that sounds like it’s on the runway of an airport and a DC9 is taking off, is not my idea of quiet. The cat is wearing earplugs, hubby is hoarse from shouting, and I can’t hear the danged TV unless I have it blasting. Even then I have to use closed-captioning. But, hey, my nose is clearing up nicely.
