Another Beautiful Day!

It's a glorious day again. Thomas and Eler Beth went fishing this morning. They just came in about a half hour ago with four large bass. The catfish weren't biting, but the bass were -- sorta. Four nice bass will make a good meal, though. Eler Beth caught the largest of the four. They were both bearing a very happy mien and seemed quite satisfied with themselves. That first really good fishing day -- weather-wise, at least -- always makes them feel like they've got something accomplished, even if they don't get a lot of fish. It's Opening Day for them!

While they were gone I did my housework as quickly as I could, played a bit on the computer, and puttered a bit outside. I remembered once again to set out my recycling. They discontinued the curbside recycling service in our county a year ago and just recently reinstated it, and it has taken me a while to get used to the schedule. But I'm very proud of myself. This is twice in a row that I haven't forgotten it.

I'll get Eler Beth on her school work soon, and hopefully she'll get it finished in record time so she can play outside this afternoon. I think Thomas is going to bread and fry the bass for a late lunch before he goes into work.

Not else to write about right now, so I'll close. I hope the weather is as nice where you are as it is here.

Yes it is beautiful here too and will probably be too hot later. Isn't recycling great? I put mine out today too. I have been doing it a few months now and just couldn't believe how much plastic I was sending to the landfill. The fish sounds good and that is so nice of Thomas to get it ready.

It was such a beautiful day here too that I couldn't help myself. I had to click my heals and run barefoot on the warm lawn. Yay spring has possibly sprung. Take care and enjoy the sunshine,
Katie

Mmm, one of my favorite fish that we used to catch in Minnesota was bass. Thick, tender, and not at all fishy. And bluegill...and walleye...mmm, looks like we might have a fish fry coming up soon!

Hugs, Beth

I am glad that the weather is nice for you! I am hoping ours gets that way soon and stays there!! I love that you are recycling, I have a question do they provide you with containers to store it in? or did you get them your self? I am really wanting to get into recycling and I am not sure where to start! lol

We're going fishing tomorrow morning. I hope one of us catch something or we are on our way to the nearest Sushi stop. Take care and enjoy your fish, your Friday and the 1st day of Spring my friend. Take care and enjoy!
