Today was one of those overcast days. The temperature stayed around 84 degrees and the sun kept fighting to get through the clouds. It was beautiful enough outside to start cutting back the over grown trees in the garden area and at the side of the house.
It was also one of those days where you stripped down the beds and washed all the linens and towels in the house. When I was bringing two of the clean blankets back into the house from the garage, I ended up not lifting my foot high enough to clear the step and fell hard into the door frame nearly breaking my arm. I gave myself a very nice bruise.
Bulldog Man created a fishing rod holder to place on the wall above our furnace in the garage. The fishing poles will be out of the way and available for easy access. We looked at several fishing rod holders in town and the price varied from $20 - $40 dollars. We both thought this was a bit ridiculous for something extremely simple to make. Bulldog Man decided to make the rod holder himself costing him a whole 80 cents to create, 30 minutes of actual work time and overnight drying time for the glue.
Talk about fish, yes…..I baked salmon from Nova Scotia tonight with fresh citrus, cooked up sweet potatoes and cut up fresh pineapple for dinner. Dinner was delicious and nice and light for the evening J
