wow my posts are short


Worked. Walked Bodi out to the Navy Point and back. He's a bit antsy this time and not listening to me as well as last time. I think he's learned that he's actually away from the Boss right now.

And I burned pudding in pan and took lots of kitchen magic and Celia's help to scour it off the bottom. Heat, water, vinegar, baking soda. Not in that order. There was soaking. And heating. And furious scrubbing. Eventually it cleaned, but not till Thursday morning after a night's soak.


Cleaned the pan. Had bacon and eggs in another pan. Did more work. Walked Bodi more. He is totally a bit more ignoring of me. Maybe he resents being sent into my care this time. Oh well.

Got work and errands tomorrow. Then it's the weekend! I might plant a few carrots.

A year ago I was packing up to leave Santa Cruz. Has it really been eight months since my trip finished?

seals have their spot


On site! Back on site again. I photographed and we caught up and talked upcoming tasks and stuff. Moderately productive day. Got a stack of stuff to do from home over the next few days, as well as looking after Bodi!

On the way to work I got caught by the raising bridge, and in some construction, and behind a school bus for a second. Bleh.

On the way back, no biggie. Deposited my paychecks. Got some junk food. Bodi got very stoked once we started coming down the road. He played with Corbie for a bit, then we chilled out.


Up early to walk the dog. Boo, early up! Then sat out front at Celia's with her and the doggies. We were both in our pajamas looking scruffy.

I had some breakfast and waited for ma and pa to show up. Today is put the raft in the water day! The weather was nice in the morning, but quickly turned cold and rainy with a bit of wind. No good.

Ma installed some lights in the garage. Dad drove the trailer under the raft, which has been propped up during the fall and winter season, and we three and Bodi took it down to the shellfish lab to launch it. All went pretty smooth, despite the rain. I walked Bodi and he got a bit damp.

Dad towed it around to the buoy, Mom drove Bodu & I back. I put more logs on the fire and put on dry clothes. Dad showed up pretty darn quick. Everything was secured and we hauled up what needed to be hauled up. Success! I made a bowl of popcorn and we caught the end of Operation Condor on television. Celia stopped by for conversation, then Ma and Pa departed for Seabeck once again, and I was left to my devices. My devices being a gigantic cook up of pasta and sauce (enough for several days) and general do-nothing-ary.

Tomorrow is a work day.

steak and potatoes


Did a bit of work, then drove over to Suquamish to hang with Aaron, hurray! Today was April 25th, which according to Miss Congeniality is the perfect date. Dinner was rib eye steak and potatoes grilled outdoors, with a salad for greenery. Very delicious, and well cooked. Afterwards we watched Death at a Funeral and Banjo cuddled with me like a good doggy. I didn't stay over, so naturally I returned home and slept way, way in.


I was so perfectly warm and content. Morning is nice. There is so little noise.

I did some more work from home work and did some laundry and had a long breakfast and listened to podcasts. Not all in that order. Now I'm just going to finish this episode of Mad Men and tuck into bed because it's a work on site day tomorrow!
