Today was my opening day, but I only fished for about an hour because my back was bothering me. After catching a under-sized largemouth bass, I settled on a bench overlooking the pond and basked in the sun for a good portion of the afternoon.
This evening I feel terrific, and I think it's because of being outdoors so much. Even in the coldest weather, I spend time outdoors, and we've had some mild days which I took advantage of by working in the yard. Today, however, was the first day this year I've just sat looking at the pond and enjoying the sun and fresh air. Windy and a little chilly when the sun went behind a cloud, but not enough to diminish my pleasure.
