We had the best little weekend trip I guess I have ever been on! I was not crazy about going because I had so much to do and didn't feel good, but then my Mom kept encouraging me to go and have a good time. Then I received the sweetest e-mail from my good friend, Connie. She told me go and make this weekend "mine"! I really thought about that. I am so used to constantly taking care of others, that I wasn't sure I knew how to do that. But evidently, my "Sweet Honey", had this in mind also. We normally just wear ourselves out fishing. We normally get up early & fish and go back out at night & fish. Don't get me wrong, I love fishing. But for some reason this time, I just wanted to rest and have peace. And that is what we did. Friday night, we went out fishing and I caught the biggest for the weekend that night, but someone didn't get the camera in time before it broke the line. So needless to say there is no picture of it! It was a 3 pound smallmouth. I was so proud! As a matter of fact there are no pictures of any fish, except a little one. We caught lots of bluegill but no big ones. But its ok. On Saturday, we slept in late, which is unheard of at my house. Then we took a ride in the boat. It was so relaxing and peaceful. We found my aunt and uncles lakehouse that I have never been to. They weren't there, but now we know, so we can visit them. We also found the Blog Cabin on DIY. It is gorgeous! I took several pictures of it as you can see. Then we went out to eat and came back and just relaxed. Sunday morning, we got up early and fished a while and then went back to the house and rested the rest of the day. We knew it was getting late, but we both didn't want to leave so about 8 p.m. my "sweet honey" said, lets just stay another night. I was all for that! So we came back this morning. We didn't want to leave then, but we knew we needed to. We are so blessed to have this place to stay. It is my husbands brother & his wifes lake house. They are so sweet to share it with us. It is so nice and so peaceful. I took pictures of a few little treasures in her house. We both just loved this weekend. They have 7 or 8 hummingbirds that visit their porch. I tried to get pictures but they didn't turn out too good. But you would have to see it to believe it. I could never get a picture with all of them, but they actually flutter all around the feeder all at once. The last weekend that they went, she told me how much she enjoyed just sitting and watching them. So did I. My "sweet sister in law" called this afternoon to see if we had enjoyed it. She said they prayed for us on Saturday that we would have a great time. Well, we felt those prayers. I have never been so relaxed. And yes, I made it "my" weekend! I loved it!
