Spring has come.

Jon and I have been very busy as you all know on the boat and at the house. We are hoping that in the next month we are “so busy” that we won’t know what we’re doing or where we’re going….more on that later.
We managed to get the holding tank, both water tanks and the engine up and running. I have running “hot” water again. Jon spent a little extra time rerouting the new hoses to the tanks and head but I think he will still be playing with them on Sunday. The propane locker looks great, he only needs to secure the tanks down and that project will be finished. The wenches are back on the boat and ready. Jon did most of the bonding on Sunday and as usual just ran out of parts so will finish that up next time. All insulating except overhead in main cabin is done. I will wait till this summer to do it when Wally the woodworker comes to do the new bookshelves. We cut a new section out in the aft cabin for storage. It was always there but things seemed to get lost in that deep dark spot that you could just barely get your arm in and try to guess what you had in you hand. We also put a coat of varnish on hatches, wheel and cowl boxes which is a cleaner job undercover. We added new LED lights to the Nav. station and put a nice Fluorescent in the aft cabin so when Jon is in the engine compartment he can see what he is working on. We just bought LED dome lights for the V berth and Main cabin, but will have Fluorescents for the Galley and Head, I need some bright lights in some of the boat so I can see what I’m doing.
This coming weekend is Jeremy’s graduation so we will be up at SU on Saturday. We flow Amy in from Texas to see her hubby graduate but it will be a quick visit because they will both be leaving on Sunday to go home. We have had their dog Maya here since our visit to Mississippi but she will be flying home with them also. I will certainly miss her being here because she is still young and seems to get Sara and Blue up and playing more. She is the same breed as Sara a Scottipoo, they are great all around dogs. PS I will miss Jeremy too………
