I've been slacking in my exercise routine. That's why I thought it would be a great idea to mow the lawns and cut the hedges myself this weekend. I'd work up a good sweat and loose some of those cheeseburger and hotdog pounds I may have put on and into my body.
I'd known about one spot in the hedges that produced a poison ivy like plant last year. I killed it dead (last year). So not seeing it wedged in the hedge line I proceeded to pull out all kinds of weed like vines sticking out before tackling the vroom vroom of the electric hedge cutter. (yeah I know how to use it without cutting the cord).
Ok.....I did it...both lawns and the hedge.....nice!!! A lil sweaty but a good sweat. At least that was out of the way and I felt like I'd made up for at least three days of exercise.
Fast forward to the next day.
Ok so I got bit by some bugs on my arm. That's why I'm itching. No problem.
Later that day.
Damn if that doesn't look like poisen ivy spreading up my arm!!!
How the hell did I get it on my butt check??????????????????
Calamine lotion, cortisone cream........keeping it cool. Letting it get air? What am I supposed to do???? (maybe I'll just go to a nude beach). ;-)
(p.s. Monday I said the hell with the work around the house and made it to the beach!)
(I took that pic at the beach with my special effects mode on my camera phone.)
