Off the Petal: Comment Glitch, Scenery & Vaccine


 The view during morning coffee last week. 

The sky blues have felt more uplifting since the pandemic. 

Glitch. When I sometimes try to submit a comment, it goes to a page...Sorry...clear cache. Doing so may mean you have to log in again.  Glitch 2: On cell phone, delete forever emails don't seem to delete.

The 2nd vaccine shot in the same arm as the first may have not been my best decision because the soreness showed up by the time I returned home. The ice helped. The first shot, soreness took several hours to be felt. Both, however, went in with zero pain or pinch even. I will continue to wear a mask and social distance for many months. I won't be surprised if I wear a mask for years.  Out the door, no mask up...sneezing right away.  Next day out the door, mask up...no sneezing. Spring allergy seasons and I ❤ a mask.

  2. I hope the mask helps me the same way when allergy season starts!

    Glad you have the second shot.

      I hope a mask helps you as well.
      I thought I'd be buying cake to celebrate 2nd jab. With the uprising of the variants, no cake for me.

  3. Glad you're all vaxxed up. And I agree on masking. Aside from safety, it's been great for dust and pollen. I'm a confirmed masker now.

      Masks are the new fasion accessory. I find myself looking at what folks are wearing, and suppressing a need to ask them where they bought their mask. lol

  4. I tend to bruise when I give blood. I find myself wondering if that might happen when it's time for a vaccination.

      Bruising I have experienced with shots, but the vaccine imjection site is clean as a whistle, no dot or skin discoloration. I used a towel and one of those blue ice packs I put in the summer cooler. On a few minutes, off, back on a few minutes. It made a big difference in decreasing the sorenss. Good Luck!

      I love your iron Dutch oven blog post! I will jot down notes on the second reading.

  6. Now that's interesting that a mask keeps your allergies at bay. I never imagined that being a benefit. We're having beautiful skies here, too. Perfect spring weather finally - not too hot, not too cold.

    1. Becki,
      There was a spot about it on the local news, masks helping folks with seasonal allergies. That's when I realized the no sneezing because I had my mask up. It rained all day here. It was so chilly, I had to put the lining back in my rain jacket.

  7. I'm thinking it was in the NYT that there was an article about masking and springtime allergies and that we shouldn't be quick to get rid of our masks. I wouldn't be anyway. At yesterday's doc appointment we had quite a conversation about the duration of this thing and the variants. It's not going away soon, but I think we all knew that. I think I'll be keeping mine close at hand for the rest of my life.

    1. Jeanie,
      Now that the mask may be forever, I'm thinking on sewing up the kind that are like headbands, only around the face. The loops around the ears or head are an aggravation sometimes. And today, I put a head bug net in the car. It won't surprise me if mosquitoes alarm us this year with a variant of their own.

  8. I'm thinking like you are. I just can't see myself going without a mask for a long time. We have family coming from out of state later this summer. I'm already stressing about the mask issue with them....

    1. Debra,
      A clear plastic bubble umbrella might be a nice thing to have handy around folks that are less inclined to wear masks. I'm getting ready to start wearing a face shield, and sometimes gloves.
