Brandon woke from his nap after I wrote this post. He got ant bites yesterday and I gave him benadryl faster than you can spit.... this is what his foot looked like when he awoke. Poor kid is limping; his foot and ankle are so swollen.... i will spare EVERYONE the picture click here if you want to see a pic of his foot....
Here are some knits that have been keeping me busy

Hand warmers Cherry Tree Hill , African Grey Sz 1 needles

colorway: Waterfall
Woolgirl Sock Club socks. Miss Babs has awesome sport weight yarn! The colorway below is called Raspberry Cane

I bought myself flowers today. I use to work in Arcata CA at this growers Admin. building next to the greenhouses and fields. Chris and I miss living up there but were glad we live next to family now. I walked next to these flowers and the strong smell took me back 7 years!

Dastardly fire ants. As we embark on the cooler season your picture reminds me that there are significant benefits to living in this northern climate. Those little rascals can't survive here!

Those dang fire ants are in Texas too? We have them here and I'm very careful not to walk barefoot. I never wore shoes in RI but we learned what they were real fast when moving to the south. OUCH Hope Brandon is doing better!

I am terribly allergic to fireant bites so I can really sympathize. Here is the best treatment I have found...place bitten area under faucet or pitcher of the hottest water you can stand, this brings the hystamines to the surface near the bites and provides a couple of hours of relief - drug-free no less. Hope he feels better!

I have two words for you:

Meat tenderizer.

(Unseasoned, unless you plan to nibble on his toes later to make him giggle.) Get the bitten body part wet, then pour on the meat tenderizer to make a paste. Let it sit on it until it dries. The enzymes in it destroy the proteins in the poison.

And Benadryl will help him rest while it dries. ;-)
