What are you up to?

Recommended Posts

It has been awfully quite around here this winter. So what have you ladies been up to? I am trying to get some horse show clothes sewn but I was having a hard time staying inside today since the sun was actually shining. I went for my first outdoor walk today - sure is better than the treadmill!

HI Phyl,

It was a great day here also I went out and did a little raking. I have lots of Tulips coming up. I just hope the weather doesn't turn bad and freeze them out.

Yes it has been very quite here over the winter. I just been keeping myself busy and waiting for warm weather to come.

Took a drive up to the camper last Sunday to make sure it wintered ok. That just made my Spring Fever even worse then it already is. If the weather stays nice enough we are going to start going up to the camper a lot earlier this year.

I spent most of the winter crocheting. I even made a wall hanging for the camper with 2 fish and a heart in the middle. LOL!

Take Care <><Mary><>

I saw my first robins today when I was out walking. Hope they brought their sweaters with them just in case!

Mary do you or anyone else know where a person could buy leather hides for sewing with? Our Tandy closed here and no one in Fargo carries leather.

Hi Del!
Actually I am looking for lambskins to sew on shirts as a decoration. But I know someone that might be interested in the deer skins if you know what you want for them I can check for you.

Sorry Phyl I have No idea.
del, I seen your post and I'm being as patient as I can be. I think the lakes are going to open up soon with this nice weather we have been having. I'm sure the rain and thunderstorms we had today will help also.

Hi Ladies,
I'm a newcomer to this HSOforum. I'm also a newcomer to fishing. I caught my first bass this summer which was really exciting and just the other day we went out on Lake Waconia and couldn't pull out the fish fast enough! The second our line hit the water we either had a crappie or bass hooked! It was amazing...and what a beautiful day too! I'm looking foward to rest of the season!

Hey Mattsgal welcome to the site!!! Sorry I have not been on here much but have been way too busy! My daughter is moving and I have now become a painter, carpet layer, vinyl floor layer, babysitter, curtain maker and garbage hauler. We still are not done with her house and I am way too far behind on my own house. I just realized the other day that opener was getting close. We have hay stacked where the boat goes so I have to get the guys busy moving hay and putting up the shelter for the boat before we can pick it up. But then with our crazy cold weather I guess I am not in a hurry. I don't care if the fish don't bite - just give me a 75+ day with sun and I am ready to head out.

Hope you stick around here - we need all the gals we can get.

Thanks for the nice welcome! I don't get out fishing everyday like my boyfriend...actually don't care to go that much, but I've already had my fair share of fishing action this year. Went ice fishing for the first time this winter and have already been out numerous times with Matt on Lake Waconia. I really enjoy it...there is an almost peace with it...also gives you a great time to think, relax, and enjoy the weather....AND spend time with your significant other. smile.gif

Hope you all enjoy this weeks weather....looks like it's only going to get better!! Hope to chat again soon.

Phyl~

I notice you are from Hawley...not that this has much to do with it, but I went to Concordia College in Moorhead with a lot of people from Hawley. smile.gif Are you familiar with the college? Know anyone personally who went there?

Sure I know about Concordia. I was raised in Fargo. I do not know anyone that has gone there though.

That's cool because not a lot of people down here in the Metro know about it. Just curious...do you know the Curriers (Dave & Kay)?

    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
    • Heres a pic of those relays. People out riding the trail out here and my sled is in the shop.
