What Is This?

I decided to be intelligent about this….

The weather here has been hot and humid for days.  I had some outside work that I wanted to finish, so I was up early and out to the garden as soon as the sun rose on Saturday morning.

The humidity was absolutely stifling!!  It wasn’t long before I was longing for the air conditioning of the house, but I persisted in doing what I felt needed to be accomplished that morning.

Before long, the sun was high in the sky, and I was dripping from every pore.  Oh, I don’t think I’m going to finish all that I wanted to!!

Back inside, take a quick and cool shower.  Aaaaahhhh!!  That feels better!!  Clean the house, laundry done and now time to sit down and relax a bit.

But, what is this?  Something bit me on my ankle while I was outside working!!  Itchy, red and starting to swell!!

Just a mosquito bite, I tell myself….

Three days later, my ankle is swollen, red, and not only is my ankle area itchy, but I could not sleep last night due to my entire body itching.

When I got up this morning, there is a hard, hot lump on my ankle and the redness is starting to extend itself up into my calf area….

Now, I’m beginning to wonder…..was this truly just a mosquito bite?  Or was I bitten by something else….perhaps a spider?

Suppose I’ll have someone check this out today and hopefully get to the bottom of it!!

See you tomorrow!!
