~ Tick! ~ Meatloaf ~ Chocolate Covered Raisins ~

Good 37ยบ morning.
Yesterday started out cold and stayed that way. Winds got sort of wild. I remembered to empty the rain gauge... since my car is clean I knew the rains would come! It looked like it by 5pm....
But, they haven't yet! Hmmmm....
Maybe today.
Looks like all the radar is in No. Cal.
I was running around like a crazed person cleaning the house and working on projects most of the day. Tim and PatC stopped by early yesterday morning to take a look at my gate and see what the problem was. They will be back here at about 8:30 this morning so Tim can fix the hinge.
I took a break and was sitting here at my computer when I felt something hurting on my inner thigh. Weird. I rubbed it through my jeans. Still hurt. So I took down my pants and there was a TICK! OH GROSS! It was a teeny teeny tiny one... like the little one here...
but dang it was burrowing in and it HURT~! I pulled him out, examined him in the sink, and flushed him down the toilet! Put some triple antibiotic on the spot. WHERE in the HEQQ did he come from? AND why in my pants????  
Dinner was meatloaf. I used hamburger, grated in some corned beef, mozzarella cheese, 2 eggs, Citrus Sea Salt, Sonoma pepper, chicken gravy, mayonnaise, garlic bread crumbs, onion, sliced garlic, and pepper infused olive oil. I put a mixture of catsup and sweet hot chili sauce on top.
 OMG, it was sooooo tender and good! Meatloaf
sandwich today!
