Monday morning and a new kind of cough...more like allergies now

Monday, April 08, 2013

It is what my mother would call a "spring cold." Well it is a "cold spring" so why not? I think it may be allergies. I was into some dusty places this weekend with spring housecleaning so I think it is a dust or mold allergy. I have asthma, also, and need to be sure I have my inhaler with me at work today.

I got a really good deal on mangos (the smaller yellow ones) at the Whole Foods store on Saturday; They were 10 for $5 and I have been eating one a day and plan to bring one to work today. If I get tired of them I will cut them up and freeze for smoothies, etc. Also have some lovely apples and bananas for snacks.

I ordered some healthy juices from Drvita.com and those arrived on Friday. Lots of coconut water with no additives, a gallon of aloe vera juice, a quart aloe vera concentrate and 12 bottles of aloe with pomegranate drink. The nice thing about Drvita is that their prices include shipping and I got a 48 lb package shipped to me free of charge. One caveat: Be sure ALL of your items in your order are IN STOCK or they will delay your order to wait for those out of stock items to come in. This latest order came in one week after ordering but I had one in January that took six WEEKS and I was finally told by the phone people that it was being held up for an out of stock item, which I quickly removed from my order and then got it a week later.... emoticon

    Sorry to hear about the allergy/asthma issues, my sister has suffered from adult asthma most of her life and it's scary. As far as the aloe drink, we just picked up a few bottles from our local asian store. I just love that stuff. Take care and keep the faith

    Hope the allergies depart and you get back to feeling better. I am ready for spring and
    yet, it looks like April showers coupled with April snow and ice. Have a great week.
