I guess that's why we both came down with colds at the same time with the exact same symptoms. You know, the cold I described a couple days ago as "minor"?
Forget that! I'm thinking it wasn't the wisest thing to go riding the motorcycle yesterday, because we coughed and hacked all night; both our colds took a decided turn for the worse. Cliff said he didn't feel like going to work this afternoon, and I told him, "I know exactly how you feel, and I wouldn't go to work if it were me." So he called in for a sick day.
We've been napping off and on in our recliners most of the day.
Remind me never to brag again about not having a cold all winter.
Oh, I did take my choking, hacking self out to the pasture (slowly) to see if any poachers were on my place stealing morels; I unlocked the cabin so I could get Sadie a drink and noticed some sort of toad all flattened out by the door handle.
See him, to the right of the lock?
He didn't even budge as I approached for a closeup. In fact, when I closed the lock thing, it touched him and he still didn't move.
Isn't he cute? Click HERE and scroll down to "gray treefrog"; I think that's him.
I saw this little skull in the leaves below the cabin; a squirrel perhaps? By the way, ticks are already out and about. I discovered one latched onto my arm a couple of days ago, and I found one crawling up my ankle today. So I availed myself of the Deep Woods Off I keep at the cabin.
I always forget what these are called; they aren't violets.
It's easy to remember the name of these: Dutchman's breeches!
