I've been a slow blogger. Mainly because we have been very busy. Busy enjoying life. We own 20 acres of woods. We are always adding to our little slice of heaven. A few years ago we cut several trails through our land and added a pond at the very back. We thought it would be fun to put up some signs. Ella's Spur and Squatch Lake. I'm still waiting for Bonnie's Way:)
We also added some rainbow trout to "Squatch Lake." I was at work when the fish came and I regret it. When the guy and Kelly drove down to the pond to unload the fish, they saw 4 little baby mallard ducks swimming around. There was no momma duck, so the babies weren't afraid while the fish being unloaded. The fish were acclimating to the water temperature and staying close to the top. Well, the baby ducks thought the fish looked like food. Only problem is the fish were nine inches long and the baby ducks were four inches long. Kelly and the fish guy were wondering what was going to happen if one of those baby ducks got a hold of a big fish. They never found out. Momma duck showed up, rounded up her little ones, and waddled off into the woods.
Anyhow, now we spend our evenings down at "Squatch Lake" feeding the fish. I can't think of a more enjoyable way to end the day. They are like little sharks. It is a feeding frenzy. I think it is more fun feeding them then catching them. I tried to get a photo, but they are too fast for me.
Not only do we enjoy feeding the fish, but we also enjoy listening to the night hawks and watching the dragonflies. An occasional deer will go by, and the scenery is so very peaceful. We haven't seen the ducks or a sasquatch:)
I know I say it all of the time, but I am the luckiest woman. I can think of no better way to end the day than feeding the fish next to my wonderful husband.
What is your little slice of heaven?
