Punctures in my fingers from shelling the meat out of half a dozen blue crabs. I couldn't get all of it, but enough to make me satisfied with the results. TBH, I was doing it all by hand. I can do it, it's not hard, but then I forgot that soft, tan skin, no matter how leathery it may seem, can be readily defeated by hardened chitinous spikes. At least the Old Bay seasoning cauterized the wounds.

I spent the night telling Michelle to "eat my tasty blood!" and feeding her my digits as she tried to sleep. I'm a terrible fiancee.

I swear I can still smell the sea on my fingers.

I've been taking things slower now. Mostly because the allergies are still killing me.

Oh! Michelle made her LEGO set to celebrate the new glass display; it's really small but so many intricate parts.

I also heard LEGO's finally hitting a downturn in profit and I can't be surprised since their creep has been really aggressive and the idea of people buying these as an investment just struck me as fifty degrees of wrong. I wouldn't mind if they tone down on the ambitions, get a little more conservative with their set prices, etc.

Canning tomorrow! The beans out there are so nice and big. I can't emphasize how much I'm looking forward to it.

I'm also looking forward to getting some fresh apple cider. I baked a pound cake of mushy pear and peaches in the new Pyrex loaf form and it was late so I tried to see if I could get the oven's residual heat to cook it through as I turned it off. Nope, it wasn't enough; it was gummy, although at least that's better than dry imo.

A couple more minutes until Friday's done with. More work being a pain in the butt from one of the outsourcers we deal with.

Oh, and Michelle's hitting the electrolysis and we're getting an oil change. Adult stuff!
