This Tuesday morning I brought the boat in for a long overdue checkup. It will be in the shop for at least a week. I tried to plan this for the start of fluke season which is on the 18th. That means about 7-10 days without a boat. That could mean my fishing will be affected or it could mean I will get creative in finding another way to catch fish or get some other food. So instead of looking at this as a disaster, I will look at it as an opportunity.
I had a small piece of striped bass (only one more small piece left now) for breakfast along with two delicious fried eggs. As I was cleaning up to go to work, I saw a burnt end piece of raisin toast in the garbage. I contemplated leaving it be but what a waste - I grabbed it and ate it and it was awesome! I have no regrets and don't feel like I cheated by doing this - it was more like scavenging. It was either me, or the landfill.
I have left the garden alone for a few day and when I went out there this morning there were asparagus abound. I actually had to harvest several of them so that they don't begin to flower. That will make for a tasty lunch today at work - broiled asparagus in butter. Looking forward to that.
I am still exhausted today after my strenuous fire making attempts last night. Later tonight I will try again while I smoke some bluefish pieces.
I'm off from work tomorrow - looks like rain in the forecast. I have many things to try tomorrow - should be interesting.
Hey folks - I actually gained some weight this morning! That means my body is starting to regulate. I am about 187 right now and my end of diet goal is about 170-174ish.
