20 Sep

The weather has changed – a hint of autumn is in the air and it is now possible to talk a walk and not come home drenched in sweat.  With the cooler weather though have come all kinds of small visitors who trail me on my way to the office and even in my bedroom if the window is open.  I was counting and at one point last week I had 12 mosquito bites at the same time – large, red and itchy.  I haven’t had this many since I was in grade school and went to the Dahlem Center for camp.

I know I’m not the only one with this problem – at the bus stop the other day I saw a mom pull a bottle of bug spray out of her bag and methodically cover her child from head to toe.  I have a bottle myself by the door and I try to remember to spray my ankles before I head out, but it is a losing battle – my blood is just too sweet.

Two of my many bites

I’ve been bitten.
