Looking Down

All last week I seemed to be constantly looking down and finding interesting things. Of course I took a few photos of the things I saw...
We had a crawfish boil with some of the family over the weekend. I was walking over to take pictures of the crawfish and noticed this one had escaped. He didn't get far. Someone picked him up and put him back in the water. I don't eat much crawfish. We boiled shrimp for people like me. It was all good and was a celebration of sorts of my upcoming last chemo treatment and the 40th wedding anniversary for my husband and me. It was a good day.

I saw this moth Friday night when we arrived in the country. It was too dark to take his/her picture when I first saw him/her but I got out early Saturday morning (around 10 a.m.!)  and took his/her picture.

I noticed this little setup when I was running errands on campus. I added the quote and did it all on my phone. Once again, the screen is small and I have trouble gauging how large I want the text to be. I am slowly learning that it can be smaller than I think it needs to be when looking at it on my phone.

Maybe sometimes it's not so bad to look down and notice the small things.


  1. I'd be one of the shrimp people, too! The moth looks like a bug wearing a tiny printed sheet. Very interesting the things you find when you're looking down and paying attention...
    Congratulations both on your anniversary and the upcoming last treatment!

    1. Thanks, Daisy! I was thrilled to get the last treatment done and over with!

  2. Happy 40th, Annie! And congratulations on the finality of those chemo treatments. I'm a bit familiar with that journey, having a few friends who went down that path. Crayfish is something I've never eaten, although Red Lobster up here used to serves something called "lagostinoes" that I loved. They looked like a large crayfish the shell halved and the diner given a small fork to access the meat therein. Several years back they claim that someone sued them over the dish and it left the menu. One of these days maybe I'll get down to Louisiana....

    1. Thanks, Jim! I'd never heard of "lagostinoes," had to google them! One would thing, growing up in Louisiana, that I'd be all over the seafood, but I don't care much for any of it. I do like fried shrimp and fried catfish, of course, but I'm trying to stay away from fried foods these days!


Don't just sit there staring, say something!
