First day of Hurricane Season....

Is tomorrow.
We are not yet in the rainy season, which we desperately need.
So Fla is in a serious drought, and the rainy season can't come to soon for me.
I've been running the sprinklers this week. I'm lucky because mine run on the lake water....but still..
Another news alert. We have a female muscovy duck here in our yard regularly. She was coming up here with her one lone chick, who apparently was lost to predation or some other natural disaster.
She continues to come here with her new paramour.
If anyone is not familiar with muscovy ducks, the mating is NOT for the faint of heart.
The males will continually mount the female, attacking them and pulling out their head and neck feathers. They will mount them without thought of their need to breath in the water.
So after watching our little female whom I have named "Mama"...we had to grit our teeth and just watch as he assaulted her.
Thats the only word for it to me....assault.
I just hope she will bring her babies here for us to feed.
They do love the malto meal cereals lol

Sorry for no posts in so long...if anyone cares

Been enormously stressed about money. Don't have enough for the monthly bills..and its been building up as a stress rollercoster.
Lots of other stuff too...don't have the energy to even coherently post it here.
And the end of the world didn't come.
I am fucking pissed off.
