68 Is it that time already?





Winter still has bits of remains here and there, 
but already the pollen is flying. 
At least in my area. 
I have already gotten pollen alerts that the trees are starting their dating rituals. I could feel it before the allergy alerts arrived in my email box!
 Yup, it is that time. (achoo!)


 
Good old Maxine from Crabby Road Hallmark©
 always knows the score.


Are you ready for the sneezing, sniffling, red itchy eyes season?
The good thing that comes with it, is spring weather, buds and blossoms. (yea!)

Also linking up this week with Frozen Moments  and A Nut in a Nutshell .

No I'm not ready for all the allergies. Not one bit, but I'm oh so tired of the cold. Sigh!

Have a terrific WW. :)

blueviolet said...

I've seen it on my car...that ugly green dust!!!

Cecily R said...

My kids are already sneezing out their brains, so I figure we should just jump in head first and get on with the nice weather. Around our house the weather is so back and forth it's driving me insane (it snowed yesterday, rained last night and is supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow)!

Crystal said...

I was sick for almost two weeks and I rarely get ill. I hate the flu!!!

Brian said...

Oh yea, tis the season, that pollen stuff is hard on Sister Gracie with her asthma. I hope you have a great week!!!

Indrani said...

Great sketch, the season does bring in some miseries too.
Thanks for linking up. :)

Buckeroomama said...

Ugh, imagine scenes at the daycare and kindergarten where kids don't cover their mouths when they sneeze... *shivers*

Dumb Mom said...

Oh my gosh that's perfect! I guess we are in the middle of the two. Flu is slowly giving way to allergy. Cough, cough, sneeze, sneeze!

Melissa + Tiffany @ Home Grown Families said...

I am dealing with BOTH right now.
I hate the North...

Yakini @ThePrissyMommy said...

Hahaha! Im afraid I have to agree with Maxine on this one. Just waiting for my allergies to kick in any day.

debi9kids said...

yep. sadly, I can already feel it too. aaaaa-choo

Cats of Wildcat Woods said...

Fall is my worst - I can sail thru spring and summer.

Binky said...

I'm not allergic, but allergies must not be much fun, especially after waiting so long for the winter to finally go away. One day they'll hopefully have much better treatments for those that suffer.

Katie said...

fortunately I don't have seasonal allergies. Unfortunately, I still have asthma.

Sukhmandir Kaur said...

20 years ago the poison oak patch was just a couple feet across. It's spread about that much each year and now entwines 40 feet along the fence line. It's red leaf tips are showing and made me think about how much pollen might potentially blow our way :]

~ Noelle said...

i love maxine!
and yep, the pollen is EVERYWHERE

Annie said...

Isn't that the truth? Things are not blooming here yet.....but so soon!

Rachel said...

Oy -- it's been allergy season here for several weeks now. My poor husband is just barely surviving.

Create With Joy said...

Unfortunately that's true - and sometimes they overlap!!!

Have a fab week~

Simply Delicious said...

AVCr8teur said...

It's my husband who has to suffer every year at this time. You would think there is a cure for this by now.

tiff snedaker said...

Neither of us have allergies, or not that I know of. Must be miserable though. :( Hope you have some good meds.

Life Ramblings said...

i don't have any allergies but i've flu from time to time.

Kristi {at} Live and Love...Out Loud said...

That's hilarious and so true! I'm so over the flu and allergies.

Christi said...

Oh yes, I know what you mean! I always have allergy issues. Fun times. :)

alicia said...

I must admit, if I had my pick I'd rather have allergies and spring! I'm so over the cold temps!

Amy said...

Oh, so not ready for the allergies! It has rained here this week though so we got a break!

Henrietta said...

No, I'm not ready! My son takes claritin year round for allergies while the rest of us just suffer lo. I did get a box of goodies yesterday to review though so we'll see how they do!

Marilyn (A Lot of Loves) said...

Maxine forgot about "cold" as that's what I have right now.

Au and Target said...

Don't come to visit us, Darling, because we live in a tropical petrie dish. You'd be one big sneeze all year round. We feel for you!

Owen's Mom said...

Oh yes! I hear ya. Just got our house over the flu... and my DH has allergies setting in. I am ready for a bumpy ride this Spring.

PippaD said...

hahha, I like that.

alissa4illustration said...

I've had allergy issues already! I dug out the Neti Pot, but felt my sinuses fill back up after 10 min.

jayayceeblog said...

The AllegraD is already at work here. Gotta love that Maxine!

Dominique said...

I'm lucky we never get Hay fever here.. as it's summer all year round in Asia.... hope that the allergies don't bother you too much this year.

Lauren @ Hobo Mama said...

Oh, man. I'm going to look on the bright side you mentioned. :)

Visiting from Hobo Mama and Natural Parents Network!

stevebethere from bethere2day said...

That is sooo true and i get hayfever and am not looking forward to it :-(

Happy WW!

Russ aka Grampy said...

That might be why my sinuses are bothering me so much.

Kathy said...

Bring on the Claritin, I am ready for some warmer weather!

William K Wallace said...

Thankfully I don't have any allergies, and hopefully it will stay that way. I love all the beautiful smells and fragrances that nature provides in spring...

Sue St Clair said...

I think I'd rather cope with the allergies than the snow and cold. Love Spring sunshine and milder temps. :)

caite said...

too true...too true...lol

Digital Flower Pictures said...

I read somewhere this going to be the worst pollen season ever. We already have some here and it is freezing out.

Lisa Mom of 2 Boys said...

I hear ya! Right now we are being slammed with pollen in GA. Our cars are bright yellow every morning. I hate it!

Sam said...

So true! But I'm ready for allergies...

Marianna said...

Alicia said...

SO SORRY! I was doing giveaway linky entries before my Wordless Wed. ones and this info was already in the form and I accidentally pressed enter. Please delete my giveaway post on the linky. I didn't mean to do that... I added my Wordless Wed. thanks and sorry again!

Casy Schweickart said...

I'll take the pollen if the warm weather will just come with it! LOL

Rhea said...

2 of my 3 boys are already sniffing and itching. It's gonna be a long spring...

@PamelaMKramer - A Renaissance Woman said...

I don't have issues with pollen, but my husband sure does! He lives on Zyrtec this time of year.

And of course just as I get done being sick from flu season, my allergies kick in! We've got 3 out of 5 noses running over here :P

minoki said...

Tracy said...

I love Maxine, she is kind of like my snarky altar ego! ;)

OLLIE MCKAY'S ~ A Chic Boutique said...

Maxine ~ You go Girl!! We are wating for the icky sticky yellow/green pollen to start ~ it's so gross!! Friends in FL said theirs was way less this year ~ so we are HOPING!!!!! that as the process moves up the coast to Virginia, the same will happen here! :)

dogsmom said...

Since I do not suffer from allergies and enjoy all the sights and smells of spring time (looking forward to fresh cut grass) BRING IT ON!

moongoddesslei said...

It's Friday yet I'm still saying Happy WW!

tracy said...

hilarious but sadly very true.

i always had horrible pollen, dust, mold allergies but after moving to thailand (from the US) a few years ago, i haven't ***knock on wood*** really had anymore allergy problems. a friend of mine studying medicine in the states told me that most countries either have allergy issues or parasite issues. certain climates are just... more prone to have one or the other. unfortunately, thailand is a parasite climate rather than an allergy climate. i think i'd rather have the allergies...

Tony McGurk said...

I hate hayfever but I have a good long break before it all comes around again...
