2 weeks off

We had a wonderful 2 weeks off, and it will all be over when Hubby goes to work on Tuesday. It actually is a great schedule. We get so much time together, especially since I’m not working. But then, it really sucks when he’s away.
We had dinner at Couchon in New Orleans. It was just ok, nothing to go tellin’ the neighbors about or anything. And I was still hungry when we left. We ordered a good variety of stuff to get a real taste of what they had to offer.

I finally made our door look inviting. Now people aren’t scared to knock, not sure that’s a good thing LOL.

If you look closely you can see my dog, Roux, at the bottom of the door looking out.

I love being home.  It seems like we are always go, go, go visiting family and friends or camping.  I love nights at home cooking in my own kitchen.  I just wish we had a bigger family to cook for.  It’s actually kinda hard cooking for 2.

 The only bad thing about cooking at home is cleaning up.

My mom had children for this exact purpose, to clean the house.  I was her little maid.

She is so upset that I moved out that she begs me to stay with them while hubby’s at work.

Look at this lovely view from our dining room table.  It’s going to be hard to move.  Isn’t that a beautiful sight?

Not many people can say they have a bayou in the backyard.

This egret is thankful our boat is in the shop right now, fish love to hangout below that boat slip.

We made time for a fishing trip. It was such a beautiful day. We towed the boat down to the Breton Sound Marina about an hour away from our house, in Hopedale, LA.

We caught a few fish but only 2 keepers, 1 redfish and 1 speckled trout.

He doesn’t like to wear sunscreen so he covers up as much as possible.  I wasn’t feeling the fishing vibe, so I made a nice shade spot to chill.

We were having trouble with the motor so we couldn’t go out too far.

Dinner that night was so good. We grilled up the fish and had a side of wild rice and grilled corn and a salad. Yum Yum that’s good eatin’!

God, I love living in an area where we have access to fresh fish whenever we want it.

Update on my Real Estate stuff:  I finished the month long course in 6 days.  I’ve passed all the practice tests, by cheating since I had the information in front of me while taking the tests.  Now I’m going back to make notes of all the information I think is really valuable.  It’s a TON of information by the way!  Seriously A Lot!  Then I’ll go back to take all the practice test again without help this time.

I’m not in a rush, but I would like to take the National and State Licensing Exam at the end of this month.

I’m so excited to get started with this new career, I can’t wait!

So off to studying I go!
