I was up at dawn to get outside and roundup the yard. The humidity is about 89%, the temperature is 90F. At 7:30 a.m.
I sprayed about 3/4 of what I wanted to do, but have about another 500 feet left to do for the first spraying. I bought a gallon bottle already mixed, then another product concentrated for a refill on this jug-o-spray. By the time I got back inside, I was having an asthma attack, was so weak and tired that I could not even hold a glass of tea. It took me over an hour to cool down, use my inhaler, and get the strength to sit up and get in the shower. I feel better now, but I will not tackle the rest of the trees/weeds until after the thunderstorms we have coming tomorrow.
The chemicals have a 15 minute rain assurance, so I got some of the yard finished for now.
I have no plans to do anything but indoor things today.
Our big fireworks festival is next week, the big fireworks on July 7. The city will be packed with about 250,000 people for the next week, as they have carnival rides, contests, the river is packed with boats, and usually at least one of the Tall Ships.
Last year I had an appointment with Dr. Hunky(orthopod) during the festival.. It took me ten minutes to cross the bridge because the rubber-neckers would stop on it to look over the festival and the river.
I NEVER travel on any holiday-weekend, for any reason, not even a funeral. I am paranoid about it, as I have had many friends and relatives die in accidents during those times. One of my two paranoias.
