Teach a man to fish ....

... and he'll spend most of his time out in a boat and out of your way.

That's not cynical, it's the truth. I have so little free time, between my job and the usual household routine, that I value it greatly when I get it. I'm totally wrapped up in my current book project, and there are times when I wish my DH was one of those fishermen who loved to get away for the weekend.

He doesn't rely on me for entertainment, but I do sometimes get nudged into doing things I really have little interest in. Not often, but sometimes.

I remind myself that a long holiday is coming up and I'll have all the time in the world.

But sometimes fishing isn't such a bad thing.
