I got stung by a wasp again yesterday evening just before I was going to bed. I thought I had checked everywhere and leaned towards the floor to pick up something. I placed my arm on the seat back of a chair and I had a wooly sweater hanging on it. It was exactly where the wasp had planned to stay the night and it stung me just above the elbow on the inside of the arm. That truly hurt! I fetched an ice pack from the freezer and had it towards the sting almost half the night.
Can’t say it helped a lot,m well as long as the ice pack was cold because the entire arm got frozen and I doubt I could feel anything then 🙂 Today it still hurts and the sting area is really red and very hot. I’ll survive but I’m starting to dislike them pretty much right now. I can’t have the kitchen door open any more since they will fly in as soon as they find a spot they can go through. There are several nests beneath the tiles and I think there’s at least two up beneath the ridge tiles. Not a good thing since they’ll inspect my chimney soon. I must call them on Monday morning and stop it for a later time because I won’t risk my life by going up on the roof fighting wasps and the waiting list at any pest control businesses are around a month long and by then they’ll all be dead anyway.
The day will be cloudy and windy but no rain is predicted so I guess it will be nice to take walks since the wind will blow away the flies. I’ll have plenty to do so no napping today even though I might be able to take one after writing this if it is a short one and I never know if it will be since I have a tendency to turn off the alarm when I set it and just keep on sleeping 🙂
I always have time for a pot of tea though so I think I’ll make tea and skip the nap. Great now it started to itch around the sting. life is so wonderful 🙂
Have a great day!
