Thursday This n That

As soon as I sat down to write this all the ideas I had for this post scurried back into the shadows of my mind.  That's pretty much how writing fiction feels right now.

I'm out of ice cream again.  Hubs was all like 'didn't you just buy ice cream?' and I was all like 'on the 18th'.  Two people - Owl and I - eating ice cream every day tends to make the ice cream disappear quicker.  Blerg.

Amazon finally shipped my order.  There are only two things in it - a bottle of glucosamine pills and a printer cartridge.  Luckily, we aren't out of ink and I've been rationing my pills.  I forgot to buy ink when I was at Wallyworld and they were out of the glucosamine.  Why they were out of those escapes me.  It's not like it combats the 'rona.  Sheesh.

I woke up this morning to a world gone madder. 

I really need to go fishing.  Unfortunately, the lake levels are so high, there's really only one place I can fish right now - the driveway to the parking lot of my normal fishing spot.  The parking lot is now full. 
That's it when the lake is at 930 ft above sea level.  In case you missed it, here's what it looked like on the 21st when it was 925ft.
They're supposed to have started dumping water out of the dams, but we're also supposed to get more sky water, so I don't expect to see much of a change any time soon.

I could probably still fish.  The problem comes when other people are trying to put their boats in there and those that have put in will have taken all the remaining parking spots along the road.  =o(

I could also maybe fish here...
I've fished that road before, there's just no place to park.  Only one person lives along the non-floody part on the east side, and I know her, so I'm sure she wouldn't mind me parking in the road, but parking in the road makes me nervous.

We'll see.

Anyway, that's all I can think to talk about today.  Got anything on your this-n-that today?


  1. Sorry about the no fishing because yes, you do need to do that.

    Woke up to rain. That's what I get for not watching the late news and weather.

    The world is crazy. Don't get me started on the rant lurking in my brain.

    I need to shower and get to Wallyworld. Blerg.

    Had one day this week when I opened windows--forgetting the AC was on. Went almost all day before the mechanicals kicked in and I had a derp moment and closed them. It's the end of May and we haven't been using it much. Big win for the bank account.

    Life hasn't changed much since this time last week. Waiting for inspiration to fall from the sky. Just get rain. Or sunlight. Or bird poop. Okay. I lied about that last one.

    I haven't had coffee yet. What is wrong with me?!?!?! I must rectify this at once.

    Later, tater.

  2. I love the setting of your new possible fishing spot. It would be worth just sitting out there to admire the scenery!

    I usually forget all the this-and-thats I save up for Thursday. So frustrating.

    I'm ridiculously tired tonight. I sat down to read for a while, and dropped my book twice by falling asleep. And it's a good book!
