I wrote this big, long craptastic This n That, but I decided to delete it. Who needs that kind of negativity in their feed? Sure, the world has pretty much gone crazypants, but you already know that. Let's talk about random stuff instead.
As I write this on Wednesday night, we're having a wind storm. Here's hoping it clears the leaves off the roof so Hubs doesn't have to.
Male box turtles have a concave bottom shell to make breeding easier. Basically, so they don't slide off.
I still haven't seen a bald eagle, but the bird I'm thinking is a peregrine falcon flew over the house today so Hubs got a look at it, too. I'm not seeing things! Darkish gray back, white underside, falcon shape. We're still referring to the bird as SHOW YOURSELF!, though, until we both get a good enough look to say with near certainty what it is.
We call the bird SHOW YOURSELF! because it likes to call all over the forest, but it never stops anywhere where we can get a good look at it. So when we hear it calling, we yell 'show yourself'. We also refer to the red-bellied woodpeckers as 'Buddy' and the pileated woodpeckers as 'Wild Thing'. Oh, and the fox squirrels are all members of the BOOM family - after the first HUGE one we saw when we moved here that I named Boom-boom.
I have a single rose getting ready to bloom. Silly bush. Didn't bloom at all earlier this year. Now, when it's getting cold? Bloop! I'll try to remember to take a pic.
Speaking of pics, Elias stopped by the yard today and I got a couple nice shots of him. The deer have been scarce for about 8 weeks now. And silly buck shows up 4 days before deer season begins. I told him he needs to stick around and eat a lot, then disappear for a couple weeks. I hope he listens.
The time change is still kicking my ass. I can't keep my eyes open past 9pm, and I can't keep them closed after 5am. I'm still getting 8 hrs, but not when I want to.
Anything on the this-n-that meter for you today?
