texas arts and crafts fair

We’ve recently returned from Dallas, and are now looking forwardto our next show, the Texas Arts and Crafts Fair in Kerrville. I took a much needed break yesterday, catching up on grocery shopping, house cleaning, reading, etc. And good grief, I needed it too, since as I walked back in the front door, my arms full of groceries, a scorpion struck! OWW, did that hurt. It stung me right on my ankle. I kicked off my sandals, killed the culprit, only to discover through out the rest of the afternoon, 7, yes SEVEN, more of the nasty creatures. They must have¬† a nest right by our front door, and they seem to be sneaking in through a little gap in the weather stripping. Got to fix that!

Well, life in Texas I suppose – yet we have never had this type of invsion before. I am cautiously checking everywhere I walk, especially since I pad around barefooted.

My sketchbook is overflowing with ideas. I’ll be back on the torch today – and if I can just get those scorpions out of my mind ……………….

WOW, Lyn…what a story, to be bitten by a Scorpion! I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen one in real life, let along get stung by one! I’m sorry that happened to you…and I can’t blame you for being very cautious now! Wishing you the best preparing for your next big show!

Holy cow! When I lived in South America, we had to constantly sweep under the beds and couches to get them out, but I never got stung by one.

My oldest stepson, however, got bitten not once, but twice, but a black widow spider in auto shop class in high school while reaching into an engine or something — so now he is DEATHLY afraid of the tiniest bug. Can’t say I blame him!
