....well today started out good and quickly went downhill only to rebound again!! LOL I was outside snapping some pics of the now blooming and just gorgeous Azaleas (in my footwear of choice, flip-flops). I feel something on my toe and glance down to see that I'm standing in a patch of poison ivy that has somehow sprung up in our yard near the azalea hedge!! Ack!! This has serious connotations for me, with compromised skin to begin with. So, I calmly walked in the house and began scrubbing my feet, shoes and then hands!! Somehow, so far, I have remained unscathed!! Hubby says that since it was a small contact and I immediately scrubbed the area I should be fine!! Here's hoping!!
So, I quit taking pics after that but did take a few to share. Our school district has built a HUGE new High School that will open in Fall 2009. They have put out a call for photos of our area to showcase the walls. I was hoping to submit some pics for consideration. These are from this morning:
