Did I mention that my DH just bought 5.63 acres of allergens?

His hayfever was bothering him a few weeks ago and he finally decided to get allergy tested. He thought it was ragweed. Turns out it is grass and trees and cats and feathers and dustmites.

Good-bye to our 3 cats and my beloved down comforter.


so I am making wool blanket quilts. I have been thrift store shopping and picking up wool blankets as I find them along with flannel sheets. I like wool blankets but DH doesn't like the itchy aspect. So I am sandwiching the wool blanket with flannel sheets, tying them with wool yarn. They should be soft and cozy and very warm. I have already made 4 for the boys. I get to do mine and DH's next. I just have to buy another blanket for him. (We have for a few years been sleeping each with our own blankets cause we both like to cocoon up in them and no one ends up with cold toes. We have a bedspread/quilt that goes over both blankets and it looks just fine.)

DH is considering allergy shots. Poor sniffly guy.

Oh, what a bummer!!! Allergies stink!


The days are so different. Instead of mess and homeschool teaching I have a DH working from home and quiet until 2:54 when #6 (who is 10)...
