Bug lights and tick bites.

Since the flood, we are just covered up in mosquito's here. It's been so wet, mowing is not a option, so the skeeters have full reign. ZORRO purchased a bug zapper from a local merchant and set it up near the pool area, as he is spending a lot of time there. Bess is afraid of the bug zapper. Oh woe is me....this big bad barking chow is a big fraidie-cat when the black light goes on. All night long, she's by the bed, panting, whining, and pawing. She needs therapy. She needs therapy bad.

Tomorrow is the last day of my meds for the Tick Fever. I've been about to go crazy in this house. I'm constantly looking for things to do. I've spent far too much time online and am dreaming about Bedazzle and Collapse. This morning I'm defrosting the freezer. The ice maker is down to just crushed ice, so a good defrost might get it all running normal.

I have ventured out a couple times during my fever. Did you know if you sit on the floor in Lowe's, everyone who walks by will ask it you're okay? Employee's and customers alike. I was asked a dozen times. And I was okay...just weary of waiting for ZORRO to shop.
I also went to OSD's (Oldest Step Daughter) for a birthday party for the 2 little boys, (Jason and Riley). It slap wore me out.

I hope to get my strength back soon...and get back to my gardens and fun in the sun (aka...yard work).

Peace...and be bug free.

Still Quarentined.

This tick fever is a bummer. Limiting my sunlight is so hard for me....it's Spring time for goodness sake. I have a garden that needs weeding. I have ROCKS to make a sidewalk out of. (I love rocks) The only upside is the rainy days...when I would be indoors anyway. Seems I'm stuck here thru next Wednesday when I take my last meds. I know it beats being in the hospital. Durnnit. I wan to go out and play.

My most sincere apologies to those who follow me....

I was trying out another blog site...and it was just more than I could handle. I'll try to recap the doings of Big Martha and ZORRO for the past few months....

We've lost 3 trees this year...the pool is up and going with our new solar heaters...after I dug 600 feet of trench to bury the water and power lines. Bess had a good check-up at the vet. I put in my vegetable garden only to have it washed away in the flood. It's in good shape now...except for a few weeds. They will have to stay for a bit, as I have Tick Fever, and have to limit my time in the sun. I certainly want my meds to work so I can get over this.

I've got a new idea for a cook book and will be testing some recipes over the next few weeks. When I feel I have some good ones, I'll post if anyone would like to try then out.

Overall, things are good in Middle Tennessee...and I promise, I'll be back on a regular basis.
