when you're not looking.....

This is a spider bite.
3 days old...
When I went to the doctor
she said,
"yep" that's a spider bite...
~red at the bite site
~with a white bullseye around it
~and a red ring around that
and now I'm suffering having to take
horse sized antibiotics for 10 days
This morning our son left for camp
on a 6AM flight
headed to Indiana
Needless to say
we were all up very early
and the sun
was beautiful.
I stepped outside with Sophie
and this is what greeted me.
and then this shadow
welcomed me into my office.


  1. OMG what a creepy spider bite! Cripes, it looks like those brown recluse spider bites people send in the email...gonna do a blogasode (episode) on your trail to wellness? I LOVE your photo of the two wire shadows-kinda like you and your son-side by side! Speedy health to you and fill your days with art!

  2. Yikes -- that bit looks awful! Glad you're taking something -- hope they work fast! Great photos! Keep dry -- looks like we're in for it again over the next few days.
