I think it may just beat a massage

or why else would I be up at 7 a.m. after getting home from fishing at 1 in the morning? I think I could stand in the creek for a very long time ... casting a rod ... waiting for a fish ... being teased by it's nibbles ... come home with nothing ... and be completely satisfied. Last night I understood why my dad says " a good day fishing is when you come home with nothing to clean." So ... maybe not quite that. I could really use a silver salmon on my hook, but I really could stand there forever.

Much later, while Jari & Chad were hanging out at the campfire, Becca and I found a spot about where they're standing. She had one on. I think I caught the Loch Ness Monster. It was big and it wasn't coming in. Tree stump? Nah. I don't think so.

David and Jolene were out fishing with us as well. Love her chair. I could probably sit there for hours as well ... even without my book.

Gotta love the little guys. Vance was quite determined. I don't know that he could see where he was headed, but the water was quite a magnet for him.

This is only my second trip to Jim's Creek. You can see the Knik Glacier in the back. It is absolutely beautiful!

So now that I've skittered away about 90 minutes of a morning ... it's time to hit the job list.
  • sort laundry
  • wash laundry
  • fold laundry
  • put laundry away (makes the list checking off a wee bit faster)
  • shred paper for compost
  • rabbit cage needs cleaning
  • dusting needs doing ... and I can't find my favorite dust cloth things at WalMart
  • hit a garage sale or two?
  • pick the last of the carrots
  • sing to the tomatoes
  • rig up a heater in the greenhouse ... my feet are cold this morning and they're INSIDE the house
  • trip to the music store for to fix Tia's flute
  • see if there is anything other than bills at the post office
  • pick up oven cleaner at the same time ... it is seriously nasty
  • listen to the rest of one of the books on cd while I try put some order into the basement
  • library to renew and return
  • scrub the shower and bathtubs

Can I just hang out on the internet instead?
