This n That Thursday

I've been a total derpy-head this week. 

Bluegills have the most awesome defense mechanism - their top fin is pretty much all spikes.  When they're in danger, they spread that fin out - ostensibly so nothing can swallow them whole without getting a monumental sore throat.  This also makes them fun to take off the hook, as they will skewer your hand.  I mention this because Monday's fishing excursion - while loads of fun - has left me with dozens of tiny poke marks on both my hands.  Doesn't hurt, but I thought it was interesting to note.

Yes, we went fishing on Monday.  Partly because both Hubs and I were in total derpy-head status, and since we weren't getting anything important done, we figured it was a good day for fishing.  We caught bluegill, sunfish, rock bass, and one largemouth bass that was an inch too small.  We threw them all back.  I love eating all those types of fish, but they're breeding right now.  We'll keep some when we go fishing after the spawn ends.  Wants lots of babies so there's plenty of fishing in the future. 

I got my first sunburn of the year.  Yay.  Just on the backs of my shoulders where I didn't quite spread the sun block, but still. 

I really need to remember to use my camera more often. 

I'm out of ice cream.  There's still some cherry up in the freezer, but bleh.  That's for Hubs.  I want chocolate. With peanut butter.  And chocolate sauce.  I see a Wallyworld trip in the near future.

What's on your this n that tap for today?


  1. It is Thursday, isn't it? Happy St. Paddy's Day.

    This: I have one of "those" scenes to write today. I was up early and had it on the tip of my fingertips and then got distracted. Now I have to find the mojo again.

    That: I actually have at least two of those scenes to write but I'm down to the end of this WIP. I have "that" scene, the big fight/rescue scene, the HEA reconnect between H/H and then THE END. Yippee.

    Another: I haven't been fishing in years. I remember going with my dad--as a kid, and as a young adult. Fun times.

    Oh, and Happy St. Paddy's Day. ;)

  2. Not much happening in my world at the moment. Work is busy and home is home. My son, a big horse racing fan, is very excited as this week is Cheltenham Festival, so I'm hearing all about his picks & winners. Knitted some blankets for a charity and thinking about some small projects for the weekend, but I think that's about it. I'd LOVE some ice cream with peanut butter & chocolate sauce - sound divine!
