And we’ve already learned about the sun more this week then we have all Winter…..because for some reason the weather here in Oregon has turned, we’re sitting pretty in the low 80’s, and as you can imagine:
I’m as red as a
(Yeah, a Rooster…….Can you imagine it now, a big old pregnant belly, with two skinny bright red legs sticking out underneath……definitely a rooster)
I know, Sexy right?
But the “Look” really comes together when you add the dollar store umbrella that I’m holding over my head like a parasol.
In my mind I’m a 19th century victorian princess, strolling through the rose garden, listening to the laughter of the children as they hide in the bushes.
(In reality I’m sure I look like something else, because I can hear my husband snickering in the background.)
So to combat the sun, (yes, we’re in full out war here) I ran out last night and stocked up on sunscreen and aloe vera gel (that stuff is my best friend today), and completely covered every inch of my body.
I thought I was being resourceful when I picked up the “continuous spray” sunscreen

(If you can imagine spraying your body down with aerosol Hair Spray, then that’s about how I’m feeling right now.)
But of course it’s better then letting the Sun get the better of me! I really want to have school outdoors for the rest of the season!
I just have to get over this pasty, white winter skin that burns before I can even get the picnic stuff set up.
(And in case you’re wondering, I am also the one who leaves a camping trip with 25 mosquito bites…….(on my left leg)….
take me camping and you’ll never have to pack a citronella candle again!
