My hubby has trout fever.

He has gone trout fishing a lot this winter....
even when the lakes were frozen....
and cut holes in the ice to fish.
The ice is gone now...
hopefully it won't be back.

Today he caught his limit.
The photos above show one he brought home today.
Isn't that a pretty golden trout!!

Now I'm beginning to feel the fever.
As soon as it warms up some,
I'll be out there with him.

 Thanks for your participation.
I thought it was a rather easy quiz.
Doesn't Shayna have a real gift!
That's my granddaughter!

Shayna's talent.

Look closely.

Do you know who it is?

I know you will get it right....
because Shayna is so good!

I'm just a proud ma ma.

Can you guess what that is?
I'll give you a's not a hot tub.
With all the is a cold tub....
bathtub, that is....
sitting in our back yard.

The garden tub in the master bath
was just taken up space for a long time,
and was used as a catch all.
It was rarely used for the purpose
of taking a bath.....
except the grandkids liked to bathe and
play in it when they were younger.
So, we decided to put the space to good use....
since I had just recently purchased
a recumbent exercise bike,
and found that I could not fit it in my bedroom.
My dh came up with the idea to remove that
big tub to make room for both the bike
and my treadmill......
he was determined to find a space....
even if he had to make one.
he wanted to help me get in the
habit of using them and hopefully
take off a lot of extra weight that
I've been carrying around for a long time,
and causing me to have health problems.

It was a lot of work on his part....
I am really blessed to have such a
good handyman.

The photo below shows the completed project.
All I need to make it complete is a small TV
up in the corner so I can play my exercise videos
and watch TV while I walk.
I usually read while I ride the bike.
I also have a yoga mat in there and hand weights.

Now, I just have to get in the habit of using
these and exercising on a daily basis.

Since I'm headed for Myrtle Beach in July,
I want to be able to do a lot of walking
without getting all out of breath.
It will be my first time to visit a beach....
can you believe that! It's true.
I will only be wading in the water.
For me, the trip will be for sight seeing
and enjoying seeing the ocean,
and spending time with my two daughters
and three granddaughters.
I'm asking all of my praying friends
to keep me in your prayers....
this is going to be a hard task for me
to lose weight and get better fit.
