I'd forgotten how much I like crawdads. (Crayfish, crawfish, crawdaddies... whatever you prefer.) Not to eat! To watch. They're like little freshwater lobsters. We used to dig for them at the bottom of the hill behind our property. Yes, dig. We lived near a couple swampy areas and somehow the crayfish would be there in the dirt. Not sure how or why. I'd totally forgotten about all of that until the other day when I went fishing and saw a couple crawdads in this little pool I was using to wash my hands. Lucky for me, I saw them before I put my hands near their hiding spots. Crawdads pinch hard. Yesterday, I saw another one in a different spot. It was huge as crawdads go. Probably 6-8 inches. See if you can spot him in this pic:
I've decided that sanity has taken a staycation this year. I don't believe it's left the world entirely. I just think it's not working right now. What does one do when sanity has stopped working? Muddle through. Carry on. Go somewhere and sit on a rock and watch nature.
It's too freaking hot right now. Mid to upper 90s for the foreseeable future. This means everything I want to do will be limited to the mornings. Which isn't that much of a relief. It's already 76F here headed toward 98F. Umm, yah. As soon as Hubs gets up, I have to get ready to go to Wallyworld. Ugh. Kind of craps out fishing. I went picture taking at 6:30 yesterday morning. In no time, I was soaking wet with sweat. Yep. Bleh.
In the summertime, I take a cooler with me when I go shopping. It's the only way to get the ice cream home without it melting. Or the milk home without shortening its life by several days. I absolutely hate when milk goes bad before the sell-by date. Ticks me right off.
What's on your mind today?
