Would you just look at that beautiful blue sky. Ahhhhh. 

We've had several beautiful sunny days strung together this week, and more forecast for the week ahead.

I love it. Lulu loves it too.

But my body isn't loving it. Happens every year: it seems that my body needs time to adjust to a change in seasons, especially when that means transitioning from cool and rainy to warm and sunny. My spirits lift as the clouds do, but unfortunately the rest of me goes down the tubes until I acclimate.

Even though I carefully apply skin block, wear my hat and long sleeved shirts, still my Lupus rash flares, my joints become more achey, and I feel an additional drag on my energy. It seems that in years past I need about two continuous weeks of this weather before I notice a decrease in my joint pain and I begin to feel settled into the new season.

C'mon body. Get over yourself so that I can truly enjoy this weather.

I did notice the blue sky...
But I also noticed the cute shoes. Tell me about them?

Hi Sheila -- My shoes are by Alegria, and actually work well for me because I can put my custom orthotic insoles into them.
