Sunny Sunday


We had a nice relaxing Sunday to kickoff our first full week of unemployment.  We woke up this morning and had breakfast with my parents before they headed back home.  We made our daily trip to Lowes and came back to the boat to work on some projects and organize some things.  

It turned out to be a beautiful day (after a really yucky, rainy day yesterday) and was perfect for just hanging out and socializing with our neighbors.  (One day I'm going to write about all these neighbors...they're real characters)  Andy worked on a few projects while Jake played and I organized.  Jake and I took time for a much needed paint job on his volcano.  It was looking pretty worn out and starting to fall apart.  Eventually, we took the dinghy out for an afternoon drive around the dock.  We managed to chat with our friend Amanda and give Jake a chance to show his stuff at the tiller.


We finished up the day with cocktails on the bow and a delicious, yet economical (becoming more important to us these days) meal of fried catfish and oysters with red beans and rice.  It was delicious if I do say so myself.

We've put Jake to bed and now we're settling down into a nice neat and clean boat (finally).  When it's time for bed, I will be overjoyed to skip a ritual I've done for more than 15 years....set my alarm clock.  I'm not real sure what I'm going to do with my first day off tomorrow.  Maybe I'll sew those mosquito nets I've been putting off.  Maybe I'll get our taxes done.  Maybe I'll work on Andy's website.  OR.... maybe I'll start on my tan :)
