The first two weeks wrap-up

Well it has been two weeks since we began our little adventure.  There have been some highs and some lows but we are still enjoying it.  The weather has improved---glad we missed another snowstorm in  Kansas.   Yesterday was a nice sunny day and we tried day two of attempting to catch a is the result---my first fish, a flounder.

A ugly fish but you can see that he is 16 inches long.  We had already made plans to have Thai food with my sister in Corpus last night so he will get grilled tonight---yum!  Hopefully we can catch another one today.  We are also going to try crabbing today.  Hmmmm---flounder stuffed with crab!

I have still been running but having some issues with my left knee so I am not going to run the half marathon next Sunday, but will do the 5K.  It is a surf to turf so over half of it is on the sand  which seems to use some different muscles.  I checked last years records and there were no runners in my age group...I wonder if that should be telling me something.

I have still been is an update of my rug.

Well today I got the camp list for my students for a workshop in Newton, Iowa.  If any of you are checking out my blog today---welcome to my class.  I will be contacting you by e-mail today to get the communications rolling.  I am looking forward to working with all of you.

Have a great day!


  1. Congratulations on the fish!! But I love the rug!
    We have nine inches of snow. Enjoy the south!

  2. That fish almost looks like a hooked rug! We are also going crabbin today - for snow crab! ha ha It's a winter wonderland here - enjoy your warmth.

  3. Hi,
    I'm just joining your blog. I am a new blogger--not even a week old. I love the pattern of your rug. Is it your own design? The border is interesting with the little designs peeking through. I look forward to following your adventures and learning from your good rug experience.

  4. Love your rug....and am jealous of your location.
    I full time RV with the Hubby and we love the Aransas, Rockport area. I am also hungering for your flounder.
