Grabbing the buttermilk instead of the half and half to pour in your coffee is a serious mistake...

Got the algae bloom in the fish pond whipped. The water looks a little dark because it's been tinted a bit. That helps keep water temps down, as well as keeping the algae growth down, and giving the fish some protection from predators.

Sioux water lily

Pink Grapefruit water lily

I also have Chromatella lilies, and Texas Dawn lilies, but neither have put off new growth since repotting.

Had the best day in a long time. Despite the fact that I had to spend the day in Phoenix heat and traffic. Talked to someone who knows my ex and her current husband (the guy she was cheating on me with.) Apparently, she quit working and sits around eating. She is, according to them, roughly the size of a killer whale. And her husband - the guy she was cheating on me with - is taking hormones so he can become a woman.

Walked past the bedroom window this morning in time to see a pair of fat coyotes trot down the street. Mentioned it to the wife. Pretty soon, she calls from the other room "Come and look at this."

Next door was the following...

I suspect it was one hit by a car that made it to the lot next door before dying. I think I'd have heard a pack of 'yotes taking down a deer twenty-five feet from our side fence.

And is on the way back up.

Just ordered some new plants for the pond.

Hornwort - Ceratophyllum Demersum, which is supposed to oxygenate the water, as well as helping to deal with algae.

Dwarf Bulrush - Typha minima

Royal Pickerel Rush - pontederia Dilatata

They should arrive by Thursday.

Spent last week in New Mexico with my son and his family.   I thought I would get lots of shooting in over 6 days.   Not so... I fired a total of 15 rounds.  I expected to shoot 1000 rounds or more.   The ranch had a record setting dry winter and spring.  No measurable moisture since February.    A stage 3 fire ban is in effect which prohibits target shooting.   The ban doesn't include private land but I'm not willing to take the risk, especially with black powder guns.   There is nowhere to shoot without standing among the dried vegetation.   I was disappointed to say the least.

Yeah all the trails are closed around here, even for hiking, let alone shooting.
