Good morning. I'm at work, and the Mrs is still asleep. Yesterday, I was so tired after exercising, that I went back to bed instead of sitting at the computer. It was not the exercises that made me tired. It was probably because of getting to sleep rather late and then getting up early in the morning.
The doctor prescribed an ointment and an antibiotic for the mess on my leg from the spider bite. However, the pharmacy could not fill it until late Wednesday (I guess they were out of the stuff). By then, the mess on my leg had begun to spread to other areas and the itch was wicked.
It also started to form a big blister. By yesterday afternoon, I decided to break the blister because it was getting quite big and was really very itchy. Needless to say, it was also quite a messy little bugger. Today it is covered nicely with an antibiotic cream and bandaids, and I must say that most of the itch has disappeared.
Janet was by Wednesday afternoon, and brought along some of the photos she had taken of her fish. She has quite a nice aquarium filled with interesting fish. I thought I would share a couple of her photos here.
I also have a photo of the gorgeous roses on Deannes's white rose tree. This plant will be stunning in a few days because it is covered with buds.
Thanks for helping me find a name for the tree that I showed here the other day. I looked Weeping Beech tree up on Google and found that it is called a "Purple Fountain" Weeping Beech tree. Not all of the Weeping Beech trees are purple. There is a huge green one that I pass on my way to work. I will stop one of these days and take a photo of it. I think they are quite fascinating.
The sticky heat worked it's way back here yesterday, and I guess it will be staying for a while. I can't complain though, because at least it won't be in the high 90's. Just normal sticky hot summer days.
Do any of you know how to tempt a fisher cat into a trap? Short of putting a live chicken in the trap, (which I definitely would not do!) we can't seem to coax this critter into the trap. We don't want to hurt it, just move it to a different area with lots of trees. This isn't an easy job, and there is at least one youngster now.
We have also been invaded by plant eating rabbits. I'm wondering if I toss out some carrots every day, if these bunny rabbits will leave my plants alone. They eat everything, flower, leaves, everything! I wonder what I did to upset the garden gods so much that they have sent me these wicked critters.
The Mrs will be waking soon, so that's it for this morning. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
