Not too much to say this week.
Have been busy trying to get healthy and it is slow.
Please heed the warning...Ticks are BAD!
Last season I had 7 tick bites a combination of Deer and Wood Ticks.
Between the 2, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme Disease can occur, and that is frightening enough.
This past week I had a Deer Tick bite me and I was not aware of it as it was on back of my knee that recently received 3 gel injections and had been swollen and tight anyway.
The tick was engorged and had probably been there for 48 hours.
I removed it properly on Thursday evening medicated the spot and then by Friday was in the Emergency Room.
It had become badly infected, swollen and very hot with flowing infection...it was a MESS.
So now I am on antibiotics and praying that the bulls eye dart like appearance does not make it's showing...or else back to ER we will go.
Always something, yet keeping a smile and enjoying each day~

My first introduction to the Blue-gray Gnatcatcher~
Female above and male below Red-winged Blackbird~
I first spotted the Gnatcacher were busy gathering bits of and using some of the webbing to reinforce the making of their own nest.
I found them fascinating to observe~
Please make sure that you check yourself and especially children for Ticks.
Deer Ticks can fit easily on the head of a straight pin~
