Just chillin' with my hubby ~ checking traps

... the creek off my daughters yard - with a beaver feed bed in the middle ~

last week Dear Hubby put in some traps ...

ALWAYS ... carry the chisel and test the thickness of the ice!

popple sticks make good bait ...

HELLO ... anybody down there!

~ Staci's driveway ...
... she lives out in the sticks :)

... chiseling out the traps ... 

Dear Hubby isn't happy with the set up on this creek and is pulling his traps out until a later date.  I guess he knows what he's looking for.
~ the bottom broke out of the trapping basket ... I guess I have my work cut out for me now ~ trying to figure out a way to mend that. 

... guess I'll carry them :)

I was really nice out today.  The temperature was around 20 degrees ~ the sun was shining.  I enjoyed getting out with Slim for a few hours this afternoon.  It was like a tropical heat wave out there after the last few days we had of sub zero weather.  We came home, had a crappie fish fry with some baked beans and hash brown potatoes.  Life is good.

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. such pretty territory. but i remember that cold.

  2. Staci's drive-way looks pretty. No snow here. lol Sure is cooler then usual though. May have to get my winter clothes out.

  3. yes, it has been cold out there. The Crappie sounded good. We had salmon tonight...but not fresh caught;(

  4. Here's to hoping all the traps are filled when you check again!! Stay warm.

  5. Sounds like a fun day! I love what you had for supper.

  6. You'd probably be in shorts down here, it's 48 degrees. I can't imagine being in that kind of cold, more than just a day, or two. Brrrrr!

  7. Your area looks like mine with the snow packed roads! Glad no one fell through the ice. I hope you will post when you get a beaver in the trap, I'd like to see the process and what you do with them- pelts, food?

  8. My fave pic is the one of YOU! Miss you.
