Last Friday I received my 2nd vaccination, and felt fine until later in the evening. Then suddenly every muscle I owned hurt, even my fingers ached, and I felt sick to my stomach. This lasted until early the next day. At least now I feel my immune system has been started.
I’m still trying to get started with growing a few things, in spite of the crazy weather. Burpee sent my order of a blueberry bush, and since I pick up my mail at a paid place once a week (I forgot to have this mailed to my house), it was pretty dried out by the time I got it. But with water and some indirect sun indoors at first, it’s come back to life just fine.
Found out you shouldn’t use mothballs to deter rodents. It sounds like they really should be banned, since they’re carcinogenic and more. Everything I read seemed to be saying it was rather cruel to use against animals. You don’t want to be breathing the fumes, either. I really didn’t know how bad they were; I thought they were made from ammonia. So I have to rake up the few I threw outdoors under the house, and trash them. Peppermint spray can work to keep rodents away instead, I guess. So that’s why there were no mothballs in the stores.
It is stunning how boring and uneventful my life is.
