Don't Forget The Gloves

Gardening is a labor of love. This past Saturday, I finally got outside to dig up those bulbs that didn't bloom anymore. Piece of cake! They came up pretty easily with a shovel and a little excavation.

While I was outside, I saw those pesky dandelions, and started in on them. After a while, I noticed a dreaded callus on my palm. Oh no.

If you've ever dug without gloves, and ended up with raw skin, you know what I am talking about. Never realized how incapacitate you can get with a callus on your palm. It hurts when you get it wet - forget about washing your hair or doing the dishes - or driving a car (or riding a bike), and don't even think about hand tools.

Moral of the story: if you are working in the garden, don't forget the gloves.

I know what you mean. I was making earrings one afternoon and never noticed that the wire had cut into my fingers. Have a very large raw spot on the bottom of the palm side of my index finger. Gloves! Yes!
