Yesterday I was stung by one of those nasty paper wasps on the back of my left hand while I was weeding.  Until then, I’d forgotten just how much they burned!  And at the time, I couldn’t remember what my reaction was … do I get an allergic response?  I had that moment of ‘eeekiness’ and then remembered back several years when mowing lawns my hand swooshed past a wasp nest and copped a couple of stings.  I lived.  Whew!!

It's always exciting to get vouchers as gifts.  For me it means going shopping with someone else's cash!  So I was excited to receive a voucher from our local store The Himalayan Trading Post which has a great selection of books.  I picked out two books (and spent a little of my own cash), for my holiday reading and finished the first one on our way home from Taranaki yesterday.  The Art of Purring by David Michie follows his book
