Something is pollinating. I sneezed all day and feel like I've been pummeled. A few bees were out, but clearly they aren't collecting all the pollen or there would be less of it blowing about. Maybe if there were more bees they would get it all before the wind does. But then this might be a pollen even the bees don't want. It might be from one of the nasty grasses that now fill the fields. I think bees prefer flower pollen, but aside from a few roses and irises and camellias and some fading lilacs there aren't many flowers blooming right now. The azaleas have all died, and the daisies haven't bloomed yet. The jasmine and gardenias probably won't bloom for a few weeks yet. I don't think any of them make me sneeze, either. Yes, it must be grass.

Tomorrow is supposed to be very warm, so my sneezing might get even worse. On Sunday I'll get to go to the store and breathe some air conditioned air for a while, which will be nice. This is the only time of year I actually look forward to shopping. Most of the time it's just an inconvenience, but in spring its a chance to get away from the pollen for a while. I might even go to K-mart for a while, even though I don't have any spare cash to spend there.

Oh, look. I've run past midnight again. That's because I keep doping off. That's another thing the pollen does. Or maybe its just my clogged sinuses putting pressure on my brain. Ech. Must put tissues on my shopping list.
