The Cure for the Coronavirus Crankies

Man, who knew we could have such strong opinions about toilet paper and washing our hands? And boy howdy, we’re sharing those opinions. And I think it’s safe to say we’re all a little cranky right now.

On Sunday, I took a sneezing fit. Which, thankfully, is NOT a symptom of Covid-19. It is, however, a symptom of something else . . . are you ready?

It’s a symptom of SPRING!

Which is GREAT news on several fronts. First, warm weather will allegedly knock this virus back. It’s less a fan of heat and humidity than I am. Second, it’s SPRING! And who doesn’t love spring?

So, I took a dose of the best medicine there is for crankiness. Thistle and I went for a walk and picked some flowers. Here’s what’s blooming in my neighborhood:

  • Weeping cherry
  • Trout lilies
  • Daffodils
  • Flowering quince
  • Hyacinths (they took over from the crocuses)
  • Lenten roses
  • Forsythia
  • Violets
  • Dandelions and several other weedy blooming things . . .


And voila. I feel MUCH better.

  1. Oh, how I would love to see some flowers! We just had a freaky wind snowstorm over the weekend down to 19 degrees. Monday it’s 50! Yup, that’s our spring.
