Wash Day 2

Last night we went to the town tree lighting on the pier and I was miserable. 

 It was cold so I pulled out my heaviest, coziest sweater that for some reason I didn't wash during the big annual handknit washing event a few weeks ago. It's all acrylic so it didn't need a handwash just a toss in the machine but it never got done.

 I also pulled out a pair of my big warm mittens that I hadn't washed yet either.....

...and a scarf I haven't warn since last year that also had escaped a bath.

What I got for all that cozy warmth was an epic allergy attack that ruined the night for me. I was an itchy, wheezing mess. I had to come home and take a long hot bath and a big swig of Benadryl. How dumb was I to forget to wash my dusty accessories? Pretty dumb.

The day wasn't a total wash though. Look what showed up in the mail. Another of those amazing pine candles AND the most beautiful chunk of nougat I have ever seen. Thanks so much Momolake! You're the best!!!


  1. I'm sorry your night was ruined by allergies. The woolens are beautiful but definitely need washed don't they? I did the same today with a scarf and sneezed the rest of the evening.
    I hope you feel much better now.

  2. What a bummer! Bet you never make that mistake again.

  3. Hope you are feeling better now!

  4. Bummer! Hope you are feeling better soon.

  5. The surprise pkg had to save the day--the lights were pretty on the pier!

  6. Oh no! Hope you're feeling better now. Pesky darn dust!
