Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting? I did! I hunted all weekend, and I think it’s exciting!
When I got up Saturday morning (at 4:45), I had every intention of going hunting with Jeremy. It was opening day of rifle season and I was excited! But, when I started getting ready, I was so sleepy because we had stayed up till midnight, I decided to go back to bed! It was really windy so I didn’t think the deer would be moving anyways. So I slept for a few more hours and then went for a run. It turned out to be more of a walk and some jogging, because I was so tired, but I did it! The wind was blowing hard and it was cold!
I have been kinda down all week. I’ve had a lot going on and it has really been weighing on me this week. So, I treated myself to some retail therapy! And it helped!! I found this cute dress on the clearance rack for $5!
Then we ate a sandwich for lunch and got ready to go back to the woods.
A cold front came through Friday night so we had to bundle up! I had on 3 layers of clothes. I feel like a giant marshmallow and can’t move when I have on that many clothes, but they kept me warm.
We went home and watched the OU and OSU games. I also did a little Christmas shopping online and bought my first present! I fixed us some frozen hot wings that we found at Aldi. They were huge, and I forgot to take a picture of them. They probably would have been good, but I accidentally cooked them to long (the smoke alarm went off LOL), so they were extra crunchy! They didn’t burn, so we did eat them.
When the alarm rang Sunday morning at 4:45 I debated sleeping in. But, I knew the weather was going to be perfect! It was supposed to be cold, clear, and no wind. So I went. It was freezing, literally!!
The ground was covered in frost and I could see my breath. If it wasn’t for my Big Buddy heater, I would have been miserable! It kept me pretty warm until we ran out of propane!
We were really surprised because we only saw a few does. When we were ready to leave, the 4 wheeler would not start. Jeremy tried and tried to start it, but it just wouldn’t. So we pushed it out of the trees and I walked all the way back to get the truck. It was probably about a mile, but it felt like 5 because of all of my layers of clothes and my big boots! By the time I got back with the truck, Jeremy had finally gotten it running. So, we loaded it up and headed to our cousins land to check their feeders and cameras for them.
It had warmed up a lot, so I didn’t have to wear so many layers.
When we got in the blind and I got still, the sleepiness set in! I literally could not keep my eyes open. I really thought about laying on the ground! I took a little nap until the feeder went off. We sat there for several hours and didn’t see one deer! Jeremy had decided that he was going to shoot them with his slingshot!
Just kidding! We had a random dog come running through a few times. So he shot some bb’s at it so it would leave and quit scaring the deer away.
We think we didn’t see any deer because the man who has the land that joins ours kept driving up and down the fence! He does it every year during rifle season and it is so annoying! He thinks he owns all of the deer!
We stayed until the sun was setting. So, I saw the sunrise and sunset from a deer blind on Sunday!
After hunting, we went home and watched the AMA’s and ate some scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast for dinner, and we were in bed by 10!
What did you do this weekend?
