Happy 6th of July! Or as I like to call it “My Wedding Anniversary”.
Yep, 13 years ago today I married that cute guy that I met at a Quail Unlimited banquet (think Ducks Unlimited, except instead of ducks, they have quail – yeah, weird, I know). We celebrated by going to Bass Pro Shops where I bought my sweetie a brand new rod and reel, and he is buying me a new comforter set for our bedroom just as soon as I decide which one I want (it won’t be coming from Bass Pro, trust me), which could take a while because I am notoriously indecisive about such things. Having our anniversary on a Monday kind of sucks because, really who wants to celebrate anything on a Monday? We might go to dinner or something – we don’t have anything big planned, but that’s okay. I’m just glad the marriage that started with a shotgun wedding has lasted this long!
So, I promised you all some pics of the garden: voila! This was the garden 3 -4 weeks ago (I can’t remember exactly)…
And here’s the garden as of last night:
Big difference, huh? Unfortunately the green peppers and carrots are having a hard time, but they are starting to show signs of life. I think some of the squash are about ready to be picked – they’re getting big!
There is a rotating sprinkler head on each corner of the garden so it all gets watered evenly. Nice, huh?
I forgot to take pictures of my knitting projects; I’ll save that for another day. I have also discovered another fun new pastime: fishing! Yes, to my husband’s delight, I have finally gotten over my fear of handling a live wriggling fish and am now able to not only catch fish, but actually take them off the hook and throw them back into the pond myself! This is a huge deal, trust me! Here’s the pond where an assortment of fish live – we have lots of perch, some crappie, a few bass, and a large 21 pounds catfish named Walter swimming around in there. I caught Walter one time about 5 years ago and have not seem him since. If we throw dog food into the water, he comes up and sucks down the food like a vacuum, but he rarely comes all the way to the top – he’s either shy or a diva, we haven’t decided which one.
Shawn is pretty good at catching the big bass in our pond. Here’s what I tend to catch:
The lure I used is almost as big as he is! That’s ambition in its purest form I tell ya!

Have a great Monday gang!
