Hay fever 2014


Last year I started on a new treatment against hay fever: Acupuncture. I was very skeptical, but had heard from others who were almost cured. So I tried it myself.

This season I have still suffered from hay fever. I have lost a lot of snot and my eyes have been itching a lot. But the worst problem earlier years – difficult breathing – have been almost absent this year! Not once so far, have I woke up in the middle of the night, feeling like I was suffocating. What an improvement!

Fantastic weather

Lately we have had some fantastic, sunny days in Denmark.
It may look like rain tomorrow, but it really does seem like the summer has arrived.

Wise words?

As you may already know, each time you visit this blog, you are presented with a couple of quotes. They vary for each visit.

As I entered the site today, I saw these two quotes:

The world is your playground.  Why Aren’t You playing?
(Ellie Katz)

Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
(Oscar Wilde)

Could it be a hint?


So much is going on at the moment.
So many things fills up my mind.
Things I have little or no control over, but nevertheless things that can influence my life.
Things that visitors to this site probably have absolutely no interest hearing about.

Home of the hat


Home is where you hang your hat

Occasionally I think of that old saying, and use it as an indication to see if the place I live is also the place I feel at home. Is my home the place I would hang my hat?
So far, the answer has been Yes.

I do not own a hat, nor have I any immediate plans of getting one. This is all figuratively speaking.

Though I have often thought about those words, it has not occurred to me before, that if the meaning is “the place you place your hat”, it could as easy mean my head. In that case, “home” may not be a geographical place. Maybe home is my mind.

Now, that is a “place” I do not want to leave.  😉

Snow away

The snow came and went.
I do not know if more snow is on its way; if not, the winter 2013-2014 lasted just one day.
