I love camping. I love hiking. I love skiing, boating, fishing, swimming. I love landscaping and gardening. I wager it's safe to say, I love being outdoors!
My husband laughs at me sometimes, though, because I also love being prepared for whatever "enjoying the great outdoors" throws our way. It's just the over-thinker in me, I guess. Which is a nice way to say worrier.
But, you see, I don't worry about what may happen when my family is out enjoy nature's finest because.....
I am prepared.
Here's a site to help you become more like me...not worried.
(It's The Center for Disease Control's Hazards for Outdoor Workers, in case you were wondering. Great stuff here: Poisonous Plants, Insects, Spider & Snakes; Heat, UV & Cold Exposure; Lyme & Tick Vectored Disease; West Nile Virus.)
My inspiration for this color collection are the Orioles who are presently enjoying fuit & grape jelly! My hummingbirds can't wait for them to leave town...
