You know, signs can be deceiving so when I put up the “Gone Fishin'” webcam shot, I’m sure many thought it was just another of my many witty retorts (stop laughing at me!). But, no, I actually went fishing today for the first time in a long while.
I haven’t been fishing in years. The reasons why really don’t matter, but I just hadn’t been. My father and I made a trek down near League City and caught…well, a sunburn. Nary a significant nibble.
Part of the problem, no doubt, was the wind. I commented sarcastically that I should have brought a boogie board to surf some of the white caps in the brackish water.
But, it was a fun outing nevertheless. My dad and I just chatted away and grilled some veggies and potatoes for late lunch. It was nice to just sit outside and enjoy good company and doing a whole lot of nothing. This was my first REAL day off in over a year. I haven’t had a vacation in over 5 years!!! That’s what happens when you start up a business. But, this year I have resolved to take more time for myself.
Maybe next time, I’ll catch something other than a farmer tan.
