When I first started out with this post I lost it, and I more than felt like……..

Anyways,  Saturday Daddy brought us four older girls with him to pick up some wood. We ended up getting 3 full trailer loads, and there are still about 3-4 more loads left to go! We will be getting  the rest Wednesday and next Saturday. 

On Sunday, I was itching my wrists and noticed that the itch didn’t go away.  I also saw that there were some bumps. I didn’t think much about it until this morning, they were itching again, and again I noticed that the itch didn’t go away.  If you are guessing poison ivy, you guessed right!

 I seem to be more susceptible to poison ivy, unlike my older sister, Susannah.  We made up a saying, "Cassia can walk by it and it would jump on to her, Susannah could wade through it and not get it."

I got it from the wood that we got last Saturday.  I was piling the smaller logs into my arms continuously, and so the wood was coming in contact with my skin continuously.  Now, I have to make sure I don’t let my wrists touch anything and walk around with pink calamine lotion on. It’s the only thing that seems to help me the most.  This color of pink is close to the real color.  I am SO hoping  it does NOT spread and that it goes away SOON!

So there is one of the joys of being a country girl!  I’m not saying that just country people get posion ivy, people that live in the city can get it too.  It’s just that people that live in the country have a better chance of getting it.

I best be going, got to set the table.

                                  Have a wonderful day!

    Well, I live in the country, but we don't have any Poison Ivy. Of course, we live in a desert, so I guess that doesn't count! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a very bright, very cheerful day!

    I get poison ivy really easy too and when I get it, it just seems to spread and spread. ๐Ÿ˜€ We have a ton of it around our house. We use the pink calamine lotion too. Hope it gets better soon.

    Especially when it spreads.

    Ew! Poison ivy? I've never gotton it, though I think I've been in direct contact with it before. It must be awful! How long does poison ivy usually last?

    God Bless Y'all!
