OVERFLOW!! – February 23. 2013

What do you get when you put ten relatively inexperienced fisherwomen out on Lake Simcoe with a few auger-drilled ice holes, wooden sticks, fishing line and a bucket of minnows?

Some crazy ice fishing!

Actually, you get a good haul of perch and two good sized herrings (we had to throw them back in the lake because apparently, they’re illegal to catch and keep.)

We all did a lot of fish kissing…

..and some baby kissing too…. (Lesley, he’s one beautiful, precious baby boy!)

We had some male help along the way – Joe, the photographer and cartoon-teaching husband and last but certainly not least, wonderful Ron – my neighbour –  who patiently hung out on the ice with us for four hours and graciously prepared the fish to eat.

The sign on the fish hut was,” Our Mission is to get you fishin’..and that’s what we did!

We had a great day together, as always.

The OVERFLOW! group has been meeting for over two years now and we continue to thrive. Something special happens when older and younger women spend time together – to learn, to play, to encourage, to honor God and enjoy each other.

I am so thankful for the opportunity to regularly meet with such an awesome group of women.

OVERFLOW! has big plans for 2013!
