Windjamming Days on the J&E Riggin
The house is organized.
The garden has been weeded…mostly…and watered.
My bags are packed.
AND I AM OFF TO THE J&E RIGGIN windjammer later this afternoon for six days of doing nothing but what I absolutely want to do. Hot weather, Jon Finger’s quiet friendship, Annie’s fun conversations and fabulous food, being with their daughters Chloe and Ella, sights to see, a clean wind to feel, the swish of the boat flying through the water, books to read, a book downloaded from the Maine State Library system, sewing to enjoy, naps to take, former travelers to see again, and an abundance of laughter and fun.
Last night, this…
…turned into this…
…as I tried to use up my veggies from Hope’s Edge CSA last Tuesday.
I froze half for the night I come home.
I also processed some kale and washed some sweet peas in the shell to eat with my picnic supper aboard tonight. I weeded heavily this morning–HEAVILY–and treated myself to lunch out and a coffee from Zoots. So I want a lighter supper tonight.
I finished two more quilt-lets in the past week at night:
I made up a few more to do on the boat, but mostly I’ll work on the lavender sachets. I’m now thinking of green ones (balsam), rose ones (rose geranium or roses), and yellow ones (lemon verbena???).
Did you know that if you squeeze a lavender ball when it no longer smells that you will release renewed smell?
Hugs to all of YOU!
