1. I haven't been out in a kayak yet this year, and I'm hoping to remedy that ASAP.
This photo was actually the last time we got out last fall before the snow began to fly. It was a beautiful portage & paddle in a stunning location. One of my favorite days. (Which I shared here - and would love for you to see.)
2. Mitch has taken the kids fishing the past two evenings. Beau
had a great fish story to tell when he got home tonight about a big bass
that broke his line & got away.
(Flowers on our porch from my Mom.. I took this photo during some quiet evening time while they fished.)
3. I got a
tetanus shot yesterday. My arm's a little stiff, but not bad. I also
stopped at an estate sale and found a humble treasure. Sharing is half
the fun, so you can bet I'll do so as soon as I unload it and take a photo!
4. Our garden isn't off to a great start this year. We planted, and then it was wet and cold, and cold, and cold & wet. Mitch checked the potatoes and found that they had all rotted. So he replanted. Hoping for better luck this time.
Our strawberry patch is great, though! After a few years of trying to establish plants.. we had to start thinning them out like crazy this year. (This shot is just a fraction of the patch, and already dated in growing time.) We should have lots of strawberries this year.
5. Last weekend we made chicken-fried wild-goose steak. (Canadian goose.) We are not duck/goose hunters, so it came as a surprise (to us both) when Mitch said he'd take that goose over grouse or pheasant (our usual) any day. I don't care for frying food, and asked Lilly to open the windows while we were in the thick of preparing dinner. It was later discovered that she had accidentally opened one without a screen on it.
I think we've finally caught up with swatting mosquitoes in the house. (That first night was rough!)
