As You Can See Below


The younger two of our three offspring (Alan and Becky.....you know who you are) thought it would be fun to hack Northview last night, since I left the computer up on the kitchen table when I went into the living room.

After Liz and I canned 18 jars of strawberry jam yesterday. 

And froze four quarts of berries for shortcake next winter.

And cooked a turkey dinner.

And planted 18 hills of squash and helped move manure and mulch around the edges of the garden. And such.

And got a TICK!!!!! EEEEKKKKKK A TICK!!!!

  I am utterly phobic about ticks and it was a deer tick too.

Rotten ingrates. Alas, they know I have a certain strange sense of humor and wouldn't really get mad....just pseudo mad so to speak.

And I love them, and love having them around, so I put up with them.....but they had better watch out....just sayin'

Linda, I am so paranoid! And they are everywhere, which is no wonder, since the darned deer come right up to the door to eat my flowers and vegetables.

"Paranoid" barely covers my dread of ticks.
Tuck in those socks and keep an eye on those ornery kids.

Cathy, my skin is creepy crawly all day when I work outdoors. And I am working outdoors every day so.....
