It was 36 degrees this morning.
Where exactly did summer go??
Of course ... Nicole was visiting in nearby Kennebunk this past week, and I was super disappointed that I wasn't able to get out of work that evening to meet up with her! What I really want to ask her of course ... is why on EARTH did she bring chilly weather with her?! (I tease, of course. Jacksonville, NC is a much more mild climate than Maine is this time of year).
Today is brisk enough that I really feel the need to swing by the farm stand on my way home to pick up some Mums and Pumpkins.
... and I'm secretly hoping I haven't killed my dog.
She's had a skin allergy for the last 2 weeks that just won't go away (part of me is worried that she's allergic to her new food; I switched her to ProPlan from Blue Buffalo in August) so this morning ... I figured 1mg per pound of dog ... and since my store-brand anti-histamine pills are 10mg each ... I gave her two. And THEN read the back of the box: "Adults: Do Not Exceed More Than 1 Pill in 24 Hours."
Oh friggin facepalm.
Is it possible to kill your 25 pound dog with antihistamines?
I did give her the non-drowsy version ... but really now. I felt bad that she's been scratching uncomfortably for the last 2 weeks, and medicated oatmeal/tea tree oil shampoos haven't helped.
