Ick, Ick Ick!

In this heat, I've been trying really hard to stay hydrated. I'll keep a giant glass of water on the counter so every time I walk by it's there waiting for me. This evening I walked by and took a swig. As I lifted the glass and the water filled my mouth, I noticed an object in the bottom. A round, walnut-shaped object. I really didn't want to know what it was, I just spit the water in the sink and found another glass with which to drown my thirst. I'd forgotten about the surprise in the glass until my husband walked out of the kitchen with a brown walnut-sized object between his fingers. What was it?

Are you sure you want to know?

I didn't. But now I do.

A LIVE freshwater clam one of my kids brought home from camping.

Okay, really. Talk about a mouth full of nastiness. I think your family is paying you back for skinny dippin'.

That is grodie. Maybe it can be part of the Hug A Tree foundation...but more intimate. Kiss a Clam or something. Way to get involved and do your part to preserve and embrace nature!

Yum. People pay lots of money for those, you know. Lucky you.

How high does the temperature gets there. I live in a Tropical country, Malaysia, so daily temperature is between 22 degree celcius - 32 degree celcius. We are on summer 365 days, with more rain, with rain in between!
