Walking up to Tilden with Sam and Presto! It's so nice to live in a place where we can walk to a park! We headed about as straight up as possible to get to Tilden and then walked up to Grizzly Peak and then back via the Lawrence Hall of Science. It was a gorgeous day, and Presto was extremely pleased to be off-leash and sniffing all the things.
My hip felt great, which was awesome. Unfortunately I got a tick that bit into my back and then failed to keep a good hold on its head when Sam pulled it out. Sam then proceeded to poke around in my back with tweezers for what felt like 20 minutes but was probably actually more like 5. Anyway, it was a lot of poking. Alas, the head is still stuck in my back. The tick could only have been bit in for 8 hours max, but my the lymph nodes in my arm pit and neck are pretty sore, which I'm hoping is more my body freaking out about the tick and all the poking than because of some sort of tick-born disease, but I guess I'll keep an eye on things.
