For a few hours," said my husband yesterday.
After no fish at the first lake, a potty break in the bushes, a run into the nearest town (wish I would have known this step before I went into the bushes) for quick sandwich and chips and onto the next lake, our "few hours" was used up.
But that's when......
....the fun started happening.
We found "the spot."  So then.....after many fish and many laughs, we headed home many hours later both sun burnt and happy.
Happy Labor Day!!
PS. I even put my own worms on this time!!!!!  (I wore my gloves of course.)

As I am making my lists for this weekend's run, I am remembering one of my favorite runs from this year: Walt Disney World's Princess Half Marathon.
It was my best friend's first half marathon and let me tell you, she rocked it!
She has been running different runs this whole year and will soon be leaving to tackle her 2nd half marathon in Disney Land.  I had so much fun getting to run with her and watch her accomplish all of her finishes so far with more to come.  She is an inspiration! 
This weekend, I will be teaming up with my sister-in-law to tackle the Go Far Women half marathon relay.  Sounds like it will be a hot one, so will plan for lots of water during the run and lots of margaritas after the run!
Stay tuned for the results.
Whatever weekend plans you may have: GO FAR and ROCK IT!!  :)

Making it a good day.

"Either you run the day or the day runs you."
Today, I am running the day and making it a good one.
What are you making today?
PS. Tonight I will be making pot holders as a friend and I enjoy a much needed sewing session.  :)

Here fishy, fishy, fishy....

Hubby and I went on an impromptu fishing trip last night.  When we first started "hanging out," he would take me on these kind of trips to a beautiful lake in SD.  He would fish and I would read.
The difference between then and now is that he has a boat and I have a ring!!  :)
We took our whole family and boy did we have fun.

I now fish with him and some day may even put my own bait on and take my own fish off, but until then.................

Horsing Around

It has been a while.....
I am trying to get back into the swing of things and blog a bit more for my few, family followers, but I am just having too much fun "Horsing Around" apparently!
Charlie and I have been having a fun Summer, even though it has been a fast and furious one.
A while back, we were invited to the local horse track.  Boy, have we been missing out!!!  I had so much fun and with the $2 entrance fee and $2 bets, I even let Charlie buy something from the concession stand! :P  Hope he doesn't get used to that!!
It was a cool, rainy day, which in turn made it even more fun to watch the mud fly.  You could always find who the winner was......the clean man.
We would walk down to the corrals before each race to scout out who the guys wanted to bet on (betting is too stressful for me).  The horses were beautiful and muscular.  Then back to the grandstand to cheer them on.
We may have only picked one winner correctly, but overall the day was champion!!
