There is no place better to watch the sun set than on the water

What a wonderful finish to the week! It was so peaceful and beautiful on the water. We had just the right amount of breeze to keep cool. We almost didn't go out today. I am leaving in the morning for NY to visit Mom and I also didn't feel well for most of the day but I am glad that we went. Quality time for sure.

We played around fishing for a while. This was not serious fishing, this was Linda playing catching little fish and letting them go again. This is (I think) a yellow perch. The worm I caught him with was almost as big as he was. LOL.

Not sure what kind this is, but DH's fingers can give you an idea of how little he was. I caught about a dozen fish tonight but I think that all of them together would not make a meal. Don't worry, they all made it safely back in the water to be caught another time.

Work has been very busy lately. I have had several monitor visits and I always have queries to resolve after they leave. I am finally getting caught up, though, on the back log that originated when my MIL was so ill and my in-laws lived with us for a while. 

Karen and I have been sweating - or should I say glistening - through our 4.5 mile walks. It has been torture, I'll tell you. I HATE sweating, and by the time we are halfway, it is dripping in our eyes. Blegh! But we are averaging 1 hour and 3-6 minutes for our 4.5 mile walk - I think that's pretty good.

I have been knitting a lot. I finished Cables and Os a few weeks ago and I've been working on several different projects since then. Unfortunately I have been frogging a lot, too, so I don't have much progress to show for it. I do think that I will be able to finish the hemp top in the next couple of weeks. I am hoping to enter it in the county fair, along with Cables and Os and a shawl or two, a pair of socks, a pair of fingerless gloves and whatever else I can find to put in there.

Well. I am off to finish packing for my trip to NY. I hope to spoil Mom a little this weekend. She has been working hard and I want her to know that she's special. Have a great weekend and maybe I'll have another FO to show you next week.

I just found you through your comment on my blog.
The remote control fishing boat is called the Aviva Fishin' Buddy -
it's hugely funny and fun. We actually changed out the line to see if it will catch larger than 2 pound fish, and it does!
Bug shirts are pullover tops made of fine mesh with zippered hoods that cover thehole head a face. No bugs get through it, and it makes eing out in the bush much easier. We also have the pants, but don't often wear them.
Nice to find you - off to read your archives, now...
