Daffodils bloomed yesterday. It's ridiculous here, really. I shall post photos tomorrow of all the loveliness in our world.
But springtime isn't all sunshine and lollipops. Three things are troublesome:
1. I have to shave my legs or wear long pants. Shaving is a b*tch. But stubble on pale skin looks awful and it's hot out--I don't want to wear long pants. Neither do I want to shave. Ugh.
2. Flies. They've hatched out and are everywhere, but especially on our screen porch. I've hatched a plan of my own to contend with them because I want to enjoy our nice porch soon. And by "soon," I mean "this weekend." It's where Mr. D and I like to take our morning coffee and enjoy the view.
3. Oh! My! Aching! Back! Perhaps it's a result of age, but I prefer to believe it's the result of repetitious motion. Regardless, my back is hurting from all the raking, pulling, hauling, cutting, dragging.
Not the worst trouble in the world, but these three things plague me. Spill it, reader. What plagues you in spring? Allergies? Flies? Back pain? Taxes?
