The Boys are Back!

My Dad and Jimmy with some of their catch!
They had a blast!
Look at what else Jimmy caught...a crawfish!
The even brought it home to show me. They dug is out of the cooler filled with ice and brought it into the kitchen so I could see it really well. I looked in the bag they had it in and the thing moved! I said, "IT'S ALIVE!" Of course, you know me, I immediately through it in the kitchen sink with water and he started moving around. Jimmy caught this on Friday...they thought it was dead! So now we have a new pet...his name is General Grievous!

The boys loved my hair too. Whew! I've been doing laundry all day. Did crochet again this morning during I Love Lucy. I made yummy, scrumptious Apple Butterscotch bars today and knit a little bit on the cardigan. One row takes me 15 minutes! This is going to take awhile! So love this merino/silk yarn! I'm even doing TaeBo again! Feels so good to be feeling well!
So nice to have the boys home. James worked on the forest today and put a drip system on it...thank goodness, that will cut my watering time in half!

I'd be up in the air with fright at seeing that thing. Yes, I'm one of those sqeamish types when seeing things with tons of legs and big bulgy eyes. Ewww...

They made out great with the fish! Did you cook them up already? I knew they'd like your hair too. That gal did a great job!

How's the sweater coming along? I'm not knitting much of anything right now. I know! What the heck is wrong with me???
