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.)
Nothing is as wonderful as an uneventful weekend! The boys had a birthday party, a bowling party and went swimming- but for us, notta. The high point of our weekend was watching the turkeys....
...again. But seriously, aren't turkeys about the strangest looking birds out there? We can watch them flocking together under our hill, and laugh at them trying to fly through the underbrush.
