I'm taking a wee break from posting while I heal from a spider bite I got in San Diego. The good news is that we were on the way home before it really started to blossom. I had a little itchy bump on my ear on Wednesday and by Saturday morning the entire left side of my face was painful, swollen, and beet red. I couldn't open that eye. After good medical treatment, I'm slowly looking more and more normal and feeling a little better each day. I'm not doing much except reading, knitting, and sleeping - thus, nothing interesting to post. I hope to get back to this blog in a few days.
