Don't Try This at Home....in Texas

Yeah, this is a repeat lesson. I went out yesterday and watched the kids swim at the lake in a friend's neighborhood. They had a pretty good time. I sat and visited with the other moms. It was a fairly overcast, shady day. Outside of maybe the last 15 minutes, we didn't feel or see the sun. Ah, but it was there - spiraling invisible UV rays down through the clouds. And it fried my nose and forehead. Ugh. I love this "T-zone" sunburned look. The good news, it turns out is that the UV protection of my sunglasses works perfectly, adding to the raccoon effect. Lovely.


  1. Ouch.
    Go get some aloe - and a bottle of sunscreen for next time. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I found the best stuff it's an aloe lotion *not the green stuff*. It works great! Being fair skinned I can relate. I tend to burn the worst on an overcast mostly sun gone day. I even sun burned in the middle of last winter. I was shoveling the driveway at work and well the sun was shining and reflecting off the snow. I didn't think and low and behold I got burned.

  3. Yes cloudy days make you burn!
    Sorry, it looks like it hurts.

  4. Vinegar and H20. You'll smell and look burnt...but it draws the heat out. Heals quicker. It seriously works.

  5. Hey, you make a cute raccoon though!


Awaiting your words......
