Hope the weather has been well in your areas. It has been typical here. Rain, rain, rain and the other day we even got some rain. Levee's have been breached down south, valleys around here have flooded, and loads of mud and that lovely Missouri red clay is everywhere you look.
Was walking around the other day looking for morels (mushrooms) and ended up stepping into a little sinkhole of red clay. Managed to get clay up my pantleg almost to the knee. Not fun, least I didn't lose my shoe in that hole because I was not going to stick my hand in there and search for it.
Today has been beautiful, though a bit windy. Sun is warm, and breeze is cool. To me, the perfect spring day. About 85 degrees or so. Rained a bit this morning but nothing major.
The only problem with such nice days.... bugs. I don't like bugs that much. Especially junebugs. And wasps. And grasshoppers. I have a personal issue with grasshoppers. Not the little ones, those are fine, but those big green 4 inch monsters that fly and make the FLITFLITFLIT sound! Locusts, I believe they are likened. Had an issue as a kid with one of those, and of course as a child everything looks much bigger. Landed on my shirt, pretty much under my chin, and HELD ON. I did the "omg omg! get it off me!" dance and the thing would not let go!! Ended up running screaming and crying to my mom... turns out when I got there and begged for help, the gasshopper had already gotten off somewhere along my frantic run. Talk about adding insult to injury.
Since that day, I don't like anything about grasshoppers except for the crunch of one under my shoe. *shudder*
