Today is Day 6 of the 2017 Fall Pollen Season.  The most productive thing I did today was use our new coffee machine to make myself a cup of coffee.  I would have preferred iced coffee, but had not yet worked out how to tell the machine what I wanted.

I attribute my mistake with the coffee machine to three things.  One: the pollen count has been too high for me for six days in a row.  Being sick for a week straight tends to make me lose focus.

Two: I attempted to make coffee, for the first time ever on this new machine, on very little sleep.  Three: New skills require lots of repetition before I “get” what I’m doing.

The hot coffee ended up being a good choice.  The pollen count today was 8.1, and I was suffering.  Turns out that hot coffee is nice when I have a sore throat.

Usually, Shawn is kind enough to make coffee for me.  He’s currently at a podcaster conference for a work-related thing.  I’m on my own at the start of Fall pollen season, and its been a long time since that happened.  There’s plenty of food in the refrigerator, and tons of snacks on top of it.  I will survive.
