Yesterday the weather was so nice! It was in a high of 70s and sunny! My husband and I took advantage of the beautiful day to go fishing. We caught so many bass! Actually my husband was catching most of them, maybe 30? We didn’t keep count because we were catching them left and right and having so much fun! I love that you can dupe the fish with artificial lures and jigs and catch them. Once the fish is on, the fight begins!
We don’t always keep all the fish that we catch. We release them back and keep a few that are within the quantity and size limit to keep. My family and friends love to eat fish and they always ask us about it. We want to be a blessing and share with those who loves eating fish, in the meantime, be considerate of the bass population and sport. Also not poisoning our family and friends with too much mercury and selenium too.
I gave in and shared my photo on FB via Instagram. The other week my mom asked why I haven’t posted any fishing pictures lately. I told her that FB is evil, lol. She insisted that I can still share fishing photos with family and friends. I guess I can and just detach myself from the negative things on there.
Work is slow. 😦 I worked one day last week and this week I’m working none, unless I get a call that they need me. I like being a PRN nurse but the hours aren’t usually guaranteed. I’d like to work a minimum of 3 days/24 hrs per week if I can, but right now doctors’ schedules are very light.
My husband told me not to worry and enjoy my time off while I can. I’m trying to stay positive although that can be challenging. I’m used to working ever since I was 14, and I come from a hard working family. It’s been ingrained in me. It’s like I can’t stop thinking about work and everyone else is working, but I’m not, and I’m quite healthy now so why can’t I do full time anymore? I can’t have this discussion with my husband, otherwise we’ll get into an argument and his last words are always that he doesn’t want me to end up in the hospital again. So I usually leave it as it is.
God has been good to us and I wish I can elaborate of all the things that He’s done. He’s taken care of us and given us time to spend together. Even though I don’t work often, but I’m thankful that I get to see my husband, cook and make lunch and dinner for him. I’m glad too that he works from home, and sometimes on a nice day he sets his work aside and takes me fishing. And you know, I’m never going to turn that down.
this is absolutely stunning music! i wish i was good at my violin to play this! but for now this is on replay
Happy New Year 2017! Last year went by too fast! To be honest, last year was a good year, except for my sister’s problem. It was such a headache. I just hope this year will be better for her and more positive things.
I just came back from my annual nephrologist visit. Everything is good with my kidneys– negative glucose, negative protein, 2++ blood seen in microscopic view in urine, however that’s going to take a long time to heal or may not, creatinine and BUN are WNL. Overall my exam is normal. Thanks God!
This year …
I want to focus on having a more positive outlook in life. My husband has been good at helping me to see the good in almost everything.
I want to draw closer to God, pray more and read my bible more. More devotion time wth my husband.
Worry less, be humble and give more without asking for anything in return.
Fish more and teach others to fish.
Be a good wife, although my husband tells me all the time that I’m a good wife.
Stay healthy, exercise and eat more healthy foods.
Be less of me and more of Him.
I deactivated my FB today. I wanted to do it a long time ago, but I never managed to go through it.
Today I did it. I just feel FB changes my mood and the things that people post are not relevant and not always positive or encouraging. I wanted to use my FB to draw people to Christ, to encourage and inspire, and to share my fishing photos. But it seemed like negative draws more attention. So here I am back to blogging. It feels good to write regardless who reads it or not, and a place where I can write about my faith, my life, and my love for fishing.
Sometimes it’s not just about fishing, but quiet time with God and being in His creation.
