Lazy Sunday


Yesterday our weather was most accommodating in providing a lazy day. We had overcast skies, in fact they were stormy looking skies, but there were no storms in our forecast. The temps were in the low 80s and there was a lovely breeze. The bugs seemed to be almost non-existent.

So we took a walk around the pond - it was a very pleasant walk since hubby had just mowed all around the perimeter on Thursday. On our way back to his shop, he suggested we grab a few chairs and some fishing rods. I volunteered to go to the house for some beers, and we were all set to do some serious relaxin'.



To-do list for pond:
1. get some moss-algae eating carp
2. build a dock
3. get small rowboat




Hubby caught half a dozen or so assorted bass and bluegill






We topped off our lazy afternoon by grilling some burgers and dogs, and having a margarita or two while we watched the horses in the pasture. All in all, one of those exceptionally nice days!

  1. Did you notice that the pic just above the one of your hubs and dog sitting in the chair with the fishing pole, the lonesome daisy has a heart around it from the other weeds? So funny!

  6. Grilled dogs? Don't tell PETA. Ha!

    Seriously, that looks like a perfect day, especially since it was spent with the man you love. What a beautiful place. You all must have had much more rain than us, that's for sure.

    p.s. come to TX and we'll give you all the grass eating Carp you can net. They are HUGE in our pond and we need to cull a few.

  7. Looks like a wonderful day. Is Ringo not allowed in the pond while Dad is fishin'? Or did he have a bug he was investigating?

    Lazy days around the homeplace are the BEST!

  36. That is what Sunday afternoon is all about and you hit it right on the head! It was great that the bugs decided to take the afternoon off too!
    How come you didn't have fish for supper? After all you caught them.
    Thanks for making me remember how I use to spend Sunday afternoons,Bobbie
