allergies or just a fluke?

Not only did I sleep through my 6am alarm this morning (finally waking at 745) but I woke with a nice sinus headache right behind the eyes and forehead. I am hoping that it is just a fluke and not allergies related. However, I usually deal with allergy side affects this time of year; itchy face, itchy nose, sneezing, sinus headache, watery eyes, etc. and they usually coincide with combine season. It is definitely that time of year again. While traveling through North Dakota last weekend for a beautiful country wedding, it was apparent that combine season is definitely starting up again. It just seems too early. The following picture was taken here in North Dakota. Beautiful!

This weekend I did my "retest" for the pushup challenge to see where I would fall for week 5. Unfortunately I didn't do as well, and figured I would start back at week 4 again on the second column rather than the 1st collum. Yippee!

nice haystacks, apparently after the hurricane hit, millions of mosquitoes were born! So they sprayed my whole entire town with airplanes!

When I lived in MN, my allergies would get terrible this time of year! Thankfully, there's no hay in FL, so no hay fever for me. Hope yours is mild and you feel better quickly!
