#25 - Honey, I Want a Boat!
My kayak isn't as long and sleek as my husband's much nicer kayak, but that's because we didn't want to spend the extra money on mine since I am not as motivated to go kayaking as my husband is. However, this little kayak of mine and its low budget price tag results in my kayak sometimes appearing to waddle. The tip of the kayak in rough water will swing from side to side as I paddle, but my husband's kayak cuts through the water like a warm knife cutting through butter. I waddle, he slices.
And we have fun. And we get to see incredible things, up close. Very up close.
Maybe once we move to our acreage in the country we'll be able to buy a little boat. We've never owned a boat because we'd have to pay for storage. Our house in the city has restrictions, so we can't have any recreational vehicles on our property or we are sent a hefty fine along with a nasty letter.
On our land, we'd have plenty of room to store a little boat, without storage charges! I'd be glad to head out beneath a beautiful Texas sunrise with my hubby so we can enjoy the scenery and catch our dinner. Once we get home with that ice-chest full of catfish, we can dig up some potatoes from our garden for home-made french-fries along with some harvested zucchini to put on the grill and our dinner is fresh and first-class. Better yet, we can sit on the front porch while enjoying the country breeze as we chow down - we might even eat off of our china. What could be better than this kind of life?
Again, I can't wait!
