Bees Knees And Hives
Hey ladies …and gents! Do I have any guy readers? What a week! Mallard was going to be out of town for 4 days but, it turned out to only be two!
So, we spent some family time on Sunday! Where did we go? What did we do?
To the flea market of course! What a great place for overpriced, unnecessary knic knacks and people watching! Next time we go, I will take pictures of the diverse array of junk food available. Mallard is just warming up to my habit of taking pictures of everything for the blog. Plus, I hate to take so many pictures on his work camera.
We had fun…
Hmmm…this sign was just hanging randomly near some jewelry and sunglass vendors… Um…what???
I still haven’t decided whether I feel that this was funny or not
One will quickly realize that the flea market is NOT the place to shop for clothing
Kudos to the bad ass mamba jamma that pulls this off!
This was something I would expect to find at a market of fleas…check out the disinterested guy in the background. I would be bummed too, Buddy. Can’t say I blame ya.
Thou shalt not buy purses at the flea market either.
Snuffy had fun just taking it all in
She was content and quiet. Then, I heard her say “Duck! Duck!” I was confused.
Okay, so it’s a goose. But, any kind of water fowl is a duck in Snuffy speak.
By the end of our excursion, Mallard had found a leather case for his new blackberry (I’m jealous as all get out)
and I found some cheap sunglasses. I haven’t had sunglasses to wear all summer. Snuff accidentally broke them and I was too lazy indecisive cheap to buy another pair. Snuffy has two pairs of her own, what gives?!
Simple, cheap…works for me!
Of course, they won’t last long for obvious reasons.
After we got home, I realized I HAD to go grocery shopping. We were out of almost everything!
I didn’t take pix of all my groceries like I normally do because it was literally repeats of the last two grocery trips.
I did pick up a jar of heaven …Oh how I love PB and Co!!!
And just what did I do with it?
Mix it with some plain Oikos and defrosted ‘nana. Then, I stirred my delicious concoction into my oats!
And ya know I’ve been seeing lots of my friend HUGH
Hugh Jass Salad
Lots of Spinach
Creamy Yogurt dressing
So, you saw the Bees Knees…
This will be graphic: but check out what happened to my knees! and arms, legs, stomach, back and face, hands ….
Ewww!!! I have had AWFUL hives off and on for three days!!! They raise up all over my body and itch like crazy!! I couldn’t get into the doctor so I finally went to Urgent Care (basically like an ER clinic) last night. Their answer was that they had none. I haven’t change ANYTHING at all lately. I have had the same shampoo, soap, detergent, fabric softener, food, drink, blankets, mattress, pets, ….and I haven’t gone anywhere new! I hate to take meds because I am currently on no medication and I would like to keep it that way. However, I made an exception and took the prednisone, benadryl/zyrtec and pepcid that I was prescribed. The hives subsided and then returned at 3am all over my wrists and palms! Today, I saw my regular physician for a follow-up and my hives began to break out again while I was in his office! So, he raised my prednisone dosage. Blah!
Prednisone is actually a steroid prescribed quite often for hives and other histamine reactions. Side effects include stomach upset, headache, dizziness, trouble sleeping, or weight gain may occur. Fan-freaking-tastic. I am reminded why I do not regularly take medication. But, at this time, I just want to stop swelling and itching!
