Good morning, another hot one, 71 at 6 am and heading up fast.  Yesterday we went to Murfreesboro for Dad’s shot in his eye.  He must go every four weeks as the new pictures show some sign of leakage and that is what can destroy his sight.  So back again in four weeks.  I have had an itchy big toe for about two days now and last night it itched so badly it woke me up and I decided it must be athlet’s foot and decided as I went back to sleep I would look up in my home care book and fine out what to do for it.  When I got up I got a light and looked closer at my toe and inbetween the big toe and the next one and sure enough there was a black spot there but looking closer I found it was a tick not a cut.  I pulled the tick out and flushed him down the toilet and got a tic pill, Thanks Patty.  Now I will have to put up with the itch for another three or four days but then it will stop, that is the course those bites take.  Today I have to make bread so won’t get as much gardening done.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
