Day #316 One More Sting


Ka-phooey! I went outside Tuesday morning to collect the empty hummingbird feeder Lots of bees were buzzing around it. I lifted it from its hook, made sure no bees were still on it, and walked inside. As I turned I must have brushed my hand against a bee who’d taken a liking to my slacks.

I now have a red swollen area on my leg as big as my hand—my WHOLE hand.

Fortunately, I didn’t have an all-over reaction. I do have that epi-pen on hand just in case, but I’d really rather not need it.

Tomorrow morning as I’m coming inside, I’d better check my clothes in a mirror before I move!

BEEattitude for Day # 316:
       Blessed are those who watch where they put their hands, for they shall be safer in the long run.
