Staying Busy Today

15 October 2008 | Annapolis
Sunny, nice
Bitter Sweet day, I already mentioned that though. The rest of the day today:

Breakfast - sausage, eggs, toast and homemade jam. Staying busy today. After breakfast and cleanup we headed for the dingy dock to cut the stainless steel tubing, then brought it back to the boat, fitted it, refitted it, adjusted the hole Wayne drilled, then headed to the hardware to replace the set screws we lost. Then it was grocery-shopping day before the powerboats take over.

Stocked up on groceries, and pop, and I thought I was going to die carrying it back to the bus stop. 3-12 packs of pop, plus all the groceries in the big bag (Steph's bag), plus Laura's bag, plus our back packs. The Navy Blue bus was irregular today, and I started worrying about my meats and milk getting warm but we managed to get back and stow stuff. Huffing and puffing. These 80 degree days are nice unless you're doing heavy lifting and working.

Finished putting the crosspiece up then dinnertime. Meatballs, salad, and hard crust rolls. Awesome meatballs...

Interesting observation. The Harbor Master is still working, but not working. We, are not working, but working... does this make sense? We're retired he's not. He's puttering around on his boat, and we are working on our boat... hmmm...

Called Aunt Joyce and checked in on her. She went to the Casino today and won :) Yay! That would have made mom happy :)

The picture is of the mooring/anchorage on Spa Creek taken from the bridge. Note the pretty Bayfield 32 & we're to the left of it.
