Finally, the days are warm, even if they start out chilly — 20 to 25 degrees. The birds are up early singing. The chicken can’t wait to be let out of her cage. We have baby chicks and 2 little baby ducks. They are SO cute. Everyone comes over to look at them. They are fun even if they raise our electric bill sky high. (We have to have lights on to keep them warm).
Saturday I attended the Second Annual Lyme Conference in Mexico, Maine. It was well done and amazing to be somewhere where everyone got you. All too often people think that we are faking it, but all there knew what we were saying. I learned that you can pass the disease in utero. I did not know that. I also got a tick puller and several other objects. I even got a lime green t-shirt for Lyme disease. We had a workshop on laughing; something us lymies don’t do often enough. After all was said and done, I was tired.
