Talk Till Dawn – 32

Creative Cain Cabin's Talk Till Dawn Series

I’m excited to share with you a new series I’m starting called, “Talk Till Dawn”, I want this to be about my everyday life, the things I’m reading, eating, my everyday ups and down, along with photos that I’ve taken over the week.

My life and home is far from perfect even though I always share with you pretty home decor picture. Now from time to time I’ll give you a look at how things can get out of control like everyone else’s life.

Dirt Country Road, Wooded Forest

I’m not sure I’ve done anything exciting this month; like most months but here’s a recap. The older I get the less I like to leave the house, and drive. I have such a hard time driving when it’s dusk or in early morning before the sun is completely up.

Hubby and I made a trip out of state this week for him to have a medical procedure and I noticed even while ridding I get terribly dizzy when it’s not fully day light. We left the house a few hours before the sun was up and I had a rough ride; trying to avoid the queasiness from being dizzy.

I think I’ll talk to my health and wellness doc and see what he thinks it may be. I think since menopause several issues occur and maybe they can be helped with a supplement or two.

Silver Flatware, Vintage, Rustic

Now on to the photo above. I decided to drag out the family silver and see what was there. It’s all been kept in a bag for years and I started thinking maybe I should do something with it (I have over 100 pieces by the way). The only thing that comes to mind is using them as wind chimes (not my thing) or garden marks (which I already have). So if you have any great ideas, leave them in the comments below. I thought it I may add it to my winter list of things to do.

Fishing Boat At Sunset

Hubby and I have been back out fishing again; we’ve had about a three week break from it due to nothing biting. Our lake waters are so warm the fish stay at the bottom and don’t feed so there was no sense spending hours drowning worms for no reason.

Yesterday we decided to give it a go again and I’m happy to report we are catching again. Here in Michigan we have chains of lakes all connected and we love to explore them and fish as we explore.

Yesterday was quite the adventure. It was cold on the lake; 65 with 20 MPH winds, and white caps. Let’s just say we spent more time trying to control the boat than we did fish. Waves were coming over the boat, I was getting wet, my fishing hat wouldn’t stay on so I resorted to using the chin strap (just saying it’s not a good look; it accentuates the double chin, lol).

Fishing Rough Waters

We had torrential rains the night before and the lakes were up; well we were clipping along on a lake we weren’t familiar with and ended up on a sand bar under under the water that’s normally visible.

Hubby had to take off his shoes, socks, and roll his pants up above his knees, jump overboard, and dislodge us from the sand bar all while I tried to put the trolling motor down at just the right time to get us back into open waters.

I say it’s never a dull moment fishing with us, lol and by us I mean ME. I’m a klutz and always having accidents. I didn’t even tell you all what I did to my hubby while fishing last month. I was too embarrassed to confess; but here it goes.

Fishing Pole and Lure

I hooked my hubby, yep while casting I sent my fishing hook right through his neck between his chin and adams apple. I have a pic, but he would kill me if I posted it. See what I mean by fishing with me is always an adventure?

Of course it was the kind of hook with a barb on it meaning it couldn’t be taken out the way it went in; he tried. We were still out on the boat so I called my son and DIL, both with medical backgrounds, to meet us at the house and perform a little surgery.

We also had to dock the boat and load it on the trailer all wile trying to fight off a Cotton Mouth snake trying to get us. I kept trying to get hubby to go to the hospital but he said no way; not with the virus protocol. All I could think was how am I going to explain hooking him through the throat and him being bit by a snake all at the same time. It all seems funny now but not at the time.

Cotton Mouth Snake

We made it home, without any further incidents and my son and DIL removed the hook. After it was over I chuckled and asked if they though about saving my favorite bait. Once I knew he was fine I could joke about it but at the time I was a nervous wreck.

Just to let you know if you need medical attention don’t come to me, I freak out and am NOT helpful at all.

Corn On The Cob

Hubby and I spent this morning processing sweet corn for the freezer. It’s so much faster than canning if you have the freezer space, and we do. I also prefer the tasted of frozen over canned; but both ways are garden fresh for the winter.

Thank you all for taking the time to Talk Till Dawn today. I always enjoy reading your comments and your wise insight. Have a wonderful week and God Bless!

  1. Holy wow….what a trip!! So, I guess a tetanus shot is in order for hubby?

    1. Lisa, Nah we just removed the hook and let him be. Now that you mention it I never thought of a tetanus shot, I’ll have to ask him if he’s current on that….I’m guessing his is.

  2. LOL. Well! I learned a few things from Talk Til Dawn… First, you lied. You most certainly had an interesting month. Second, the silverware? Make napkin rings out of them… well, not a hundred, but a dozen or so would be nice. Third, do y’all know you can buy really good fish at the market? It’s already skinned and gutted, nicely packed for the freezer, and it’s much safer for everyone involved. There’s a book called “Deadly Doses” that describes how to kill someone. Probably much easier way to get rid of your hubby if that’s your intention. Of course, you could always tie him up and leave him for the cottonmouths, but then you’d need to find a place to hide the body. Oh honey, y’all need to move!

    1. Linda, Love the idea of napkin rings (you’re so smart and creative) LOL my hubby would appreciate the market fish and not have to endure being hooked to have fish in the freezer. Girl you are cracking me up with the book recommendation, I’m in tears over here. LOL LOL LOL

    A few things I’ve seen old silverware used for….flatten them out & use them to spell words. Mount them on a board &/or frame them. Pantry or Eat would be pretty. I’ve also seen them bent into hooks to store things on in a pantry or mud room.

    1. Jenny, I love the idea of making hooks from the. I think I will find a place that needs a little storage and try that. Thank you!

  4. Hi Dawn, My gosh, I’ve been in cyber hell. My hard drive crashed. But I’m back baby! I spent the morning in a vortex watching your DIY videos. Drank a pot of tea while doing so and my hubby had to scrape me off the ceiling after all that caffeine. But I love your ideas and you’ve become my favorite blog.My sister of the heart, Maxine, and I recently began a creative lifestyle blog. I’ve been writing a monthly newsletter for about 15 years and the new blog stuff is convoluted to this luddite. But we’re getting there.Every time I think of you hooking your hubs with that fish hook I cringe… then I start laughing. Keep up the good work. You inspire me.
