Taking it easy


I've been out of commission for a couple of days this week after receiving some kind of nasty insect bite- I'm not sure what it was since I didn't see the culprit but I'm thinking possibly a spider.

The grass needs cutting and the chicken coops need cleaning, but I still don't feel like being outside much right now... so I'll be taking it easy like Lily is in the picture above and visiting my blog friends today.

Happy Wednesday, everyone...

  5. Hope you're all better soon Paula! If it was a spider bite you may need some antibiotics before it gets well. Same thing happened to my daughter. Lily has really got the right idea! She's adorable as always. Hugs!!!!

  6. Paula, since you don't know what bit you please see the Dr. if it doesn't clear up soon, my mom got bit by something once and it turned into all kinds of weird problems for her:( Love that pic of Lily, the dog days of summer:)

  9. Paula, I have said a prayer for healing for you. Now you and lily just lay around the house till you are back to normal.(grin) We had a mosquito get in our bedroom night before last, and it did quite a number on my poor face. I have bites on my chin, cheek, both eyebrows, 2 bites on one eyelid and one bite on the other. Let me tell you, I look kind of funny. Both eyelids were really swollen yesterday, but are better today. Kevin set off a bug bomb yesterday, so no new bites this morning. Have a peaceful day, my friend.

  11. I got bit by the brown recluse spider in August 2009. It was a horrible experience and I have a nasty scar on my hand from it. It has finally filled it. It had left one helluva hole on my hand. Blessed to be alive!
    I am very sympathetic to you during this period. rest up and just concentrate on getting better.
    Lily has the right idea!
    Sending much love and prayers for recovery your way!

  12. Watch out for those nasty spiders, girl! I guess if we live in the country that's just one of the "perks" that goes with it!

    I hope you look just as comfortable as Miss Lily. Only if anyone sees you, please tuck your tongue in your mouth...

    ;)

  13. I sure hope that you are feeling better.
    On these hot and humid days I think that Lily has the best idea.
    Our Maxwell has been doing a lot of that also.
    Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
    Hugs

  16. Hi,

    My daddy had some sort of bite a while back too--his turned out pretty bad and eventually he had to get a little bit done on it, but all is well now. We're not completely sure what bit him, but we guessed a spider, too--specifically a Brown Recluse. He had been working outside. It took a year for his leg to heal from it, and he still has a hole in his leg!

    Hope that's not your case!

    God bless you,
    Joy

  21. Many family members of mine have been bitten by Brown Recluse spiders...now I can recognize the bite symptoms and appearance within hours, which is not a good experience to earn. For a long time, I'd NOT go to sleep until I prayed that me and my daughters would not be bit by a recluse (my husband had already been bitten and my mother and my dad and my sister and my niece). God protected me and my girls. I hope you are okay and that it's NOT a spider bite!

  25. They sure can do a job on you, please keep an eye on it and get to the dr if you are not feeling better soon, It would be good to get your blood checked.

    Do you have a fever? If so, please go.

    Now Lily looks so pooped out from this heat. I bet she is dreaming of playing in the Fall leaves.

  27. you watch that bite for infection please - several years ago DH had a brown recluse bite - nasty business - I am thinking the weird weather this year has even the bug.insect world off balance - seems to be more biting and stinging going on here on Buhlaland than normal! Rest up and stay out of the heat! All that work will still be there when it cools a bit!

  28. I hope your bite gets better soon. Pesky spiders!

  29. So sorry Paula! Hope it wasn't a brown recluse - about the only type we have around here! Jason was bitten by one about 3 years ago and it was a terrible ordeal and he has a nasty scar! Take care of yourself!

    And Lily sure knows how to take it easy! :)

    Blessings,
    Tammy

  30. Darn it all. Not fun!
    I hope it's nothing too serious,and that you are feeling 100% soon!!
    I sure have missed reading your blog, and I am looking forward to treating myself and catching up on all your goings-on :)
    Please take care of you and feel better soon!
    (p.s. If you don't feel better soon, maybe you need to see the doc ? Some bites can be very scary, and require medical treatment to clear up.)

  31. Do take it easy...those bites can turn nasty. Get lots of rest.
    I was so glad to see you took time to stop by my blog.
    Have a wonderful weekend,
    Melissa

  34. Paula,
    I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well. Those insect bites can really hurt. I hate spiders. Mom got a spider bite one time while picking blackberries and the doctor gave her a shot for the posion. I sure hope you get to feeling better real soon and Lily gets plenty of rest, too.

  35. I am sorry you got a nasty bug bite. Hope that by now you have recovered. We moved the front and back yard today because the sky was swelling up with some fat rain clouds. I vacuumed, did laundry, have dinner in the crockpot. So you don't need to work this week, because I think I have done enough for the both of us! Lily looks like what I want to be doing now after chores. Feel better!
