For the past couple of weeks I have been feeling a profound kind of exhaustion, like my bones are made of lead. I have felt this before a couple of times. Once (or rather twice) when I was pregnant and several times since having children when I get a little anemic. But my usual remedies haven't been working this time so I went to my acupuncturist for some advice. She suggested it might be spring fever. Apparently, the term actually means a kind of illness that comes at the same time as spring, or with the pollen that accompanies the spring. I am not so sure that is it. It may be a thyroid thing, or just plain old exhaustion, which is not totally unreasonable given the pace of things lately. I should know more in a few days.
In the meantime, here are some pictures of the spring fever that has boiled to the surface here in Sunnyside:
