Saturday on the River

Our sunrise drive to the river.

MrB and I loaded up our 1987 bass boat, and headed to the river yesterday morning. We packed some drinks and crackers. Where we go to put the boat in the Tennessee River is beautiful, surrounded by mountains and nature.

I brought some things to read. I’m reading a great book on simple living called “Down To Earth” by Rhonda Hetzel. I’ve been following Rhonda’s blog for a little while, and really enjoy her information.

While I was reading MrB was doing what he loves. We saw some of our friends in their boat, and talked to them a couple of different times.

As the morning went on the clouds started building, and the wind picked up. We met back up with our friends, and the guys helped each other load their boats on the trailers.

We ate leftover Mexican casserole when we got home, then wound up taking a long nap. I’m usually getting up at 6am, but we got up right about 5. I also usually get tired when I go out on the water.

I haven’t prepared the kitchen very well for our new budget. We ended up piecing together a dinner. I had a microwave meal with some asparagus. MrB had vegetarian “chicken” patties and asparagus. Later in the evening he decided he wanted something sweet, so he baked a vegan cake mix that he had gotten me back when we still ate a vegan diet. It was a chai spice cake, and it was yummy.

We spent the rest of the evening watching football, and we went to bed a little early.
