I was going to say Welcome December but I’ve realized I’m not ready. Where has 2016 gone! I can relate now to the old folks that sit around and say “Where does the time go?”
No snow yet but we can see it on the forecast…. Maybe Monday. We sure have ice already. Forming in any container left outside and in between the wrinkles of tarps leaving the neatest formations! This time of year is a mix between things slowing down and speeding up. The weather makes us all slow down a bit but the holidays move quickly. It’s important to find time to just enjoy the season. My brother, Sam, came back to visit for Thanksgiving and when I noticed a bald eagle eating down by the White Salmon River below the highway we had to stop! We ended up seeing 6 or 7 eagles! They were well aware of us and left their kill but hung out in the near by firs. Such awesome creatures!
As for boat progress, a lot of material ordering and runs into Portland at the moment. We’ve ordered fiberglass cloth and cold-weather epoxy resin to glass the deck. Also, today we ordered, caulking irons and ruffly 840 ft of caulking cotton to start. Can’t break the bank all at once. Still working out interior layouts and therefore have not completed the cabin roofs. Cleaning and other small tasks always can be done…. even though it doesn’t feel like progress we have to remember that it is 🙂
