Katie and I were driving home from her 4-H achievement day this evening, and there, on the side of the road, was a small turtle. One the road, where a turtle should not be if it wants to live. So we turned around and went back. Had to get it off the road. It was a small snapping turtle, about the size of a bread and butter plate. Sadly it had already been hit by a car, it's shell was cracked, and there was some blood. :( A man stopped and he put it down in the ditch, where hopefully it will decide to go the other direction. He said his wife was a bit further up the road watching another turtle, so we went to see that one too, and there it was, strolling across the parking lot of the bottle return depot :) On Tuesday Troy and I saw a turtle laying eggs.
Hubby bought the groceries for Troy's grad party tomorrow. And he bought me 5lbs of PEI mussels for my early birthday present. I steamed them up this evening, and was even nice enough to share them. There's no way I could have eaten that many mussels by myself. They were YUMMY!
Did I mention that I got on Dancer yesterday and rode her for a little bit? I did!! :)
Happy Canada Day Weekend!
