That's right - I rocked the boat today - it was a gorgeous day today so Mr. Farmhouse wanted to head out and take me fishing - "bobber" fishing as I call it. Which means fishing for sunfish and I'm good with that. I like a bobber to watch while I'm sitting there enjoying the sun and the water.
Gorgeous day on the water don't ya think. I feel so blessed to live on this beautiful lake and enjoy it all year long - each season brings a different kind of beauty to see and enjoy.
So taking me fishing is a bit like taking a little kid - shoot they are probably even braver than I am - but I don't put on worms or minnows - Mr. Farmhouse does that for me
Then you throw in a little line repair like what he's doing in the above picture - adds to the fun for him lol. But seriously he doesn't mind - he just likes to have me out fishing. But how I rocked the boat was that while I was fishing for little sunfish with a tiny hook and fishing line weighted for little fish - I snagged this baby
yup that's a big fish for Karen lol. It's a northern and was 33 inches long and Mr. Farmhouse figured out it was about 10 lbs. Took me a bit to reel him in and since we were going for small fish we didn't have the net to scoop him up - so we had to wait for him to wear himself out enough so hubs could grab him into the boat. Besides not putting on worms or minnows - I don't take off fish or touch them either lol. Mr. Farmhouse calls me Karen of the North - I don't mind fishing - I just have requirements for going :). Don't worry we put him back in the water - catch and release in this house most of the time. It was fun to have a fighter on the line. Fishing wasn't the greatest today - but it was a beautiful day to be outside on the water - catching fish was a bonus.
Remember when I showed you this spot in front of the house we were having some work done
well it's done now and I love it
I like how it's elevated in the front of the house now and makes a little bit more of a statement with the wall. The plants are all new ones so they are small - but a nice variety with pretty colors.
Well that's all I have for now - no sewing today - just fun out on the water with Mr. Farmhouse catching BIG fish lol. Oh I made more comfort food tonight, meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn - dang it tasted good. I hate to say it but I'm starting to think of fall. Ok enough of that talk for now. But fall decorating is just around the corner for me. I need to be ready for my first group of ladies to the nest in early September.
