Re-Outfitting and Pico

Today I spent a little time re-outfitting my canoe for this summer season. Because of Texas law I had to re-register

my canoe because I have a small trolling motor and it’s slightly longer than 16′ either reason is enough

to warrant registration/license.So after the 54.00 I spent on registration  I mounted the motor to my fly tying table and hooked it up to my

deep cycle battery it ran for 15 minutes and it  abruptly quit I attempted to recharge the battery no luck

I will have to buy a new battery……bummer.

Later we made some fresh pico- de Gallo. Simple as it gets and tasty most of the ingredients can come from the garden this time of year,,,well

someones garden anyway. Our garden is currently still transitioning from our fall garden.


Diced red onion 1/4 to 1/2 cup

3 diced tomatoes

small handful of cilantro

5 whole diced pickled jalapeno

red wine vinegar

swig of olive oil

Saturday. Samuel Adams Octoberfest. Maple Burl friction folder by Onetree. My newly planted Texas purple sage. Which interesting enough the native americans used to brew herbal teas that treated fever and chills. Mesquite grilled hamburgers accompanied by a mesquite friction folder. Made in Texas by me. Date night. #Reposting @artisanbuilt with @instagrab_pic -- We spent most of the morning back at the Seward Plantation working on project scope and pricing. You can't help but be transported back in time when you walk on the property. Not in the way a museum full of antiquities makes you feel. But in a real life honest representation of a home,outbuildings and contents that have somehow managed to survive in gritty glory since before the civil war. The beginning of my fall garden requires a matching beer. But of course. Coffee first. Saturday evening creek therapy. How many carpenters does it take to start an old land cruiser? Apparently it's more then four...... Date night. T-bones,beets,asparagus,mac and cheese and naan bread. And of course yet another gratuitous shot of one my homemade knifes.
