Maybe it was all the rain we’ve had recently, or my current state of exhaustion, or the changing seasons and the colder temperatures, but whatever caused it – I’ve been afflicted with a head cold for the last couple of days.
This is very unfortunate, because I’ve had to call in sick to my job these last couple of days. (My current job is working every waking hour to get the boat ready to cruise in less than a month – and I love it!) I’m trying to do things that don’t require me to be outside in the cold, rain and wind, so the engine has been getting my attention recently. Hopefully I’ll be reassembling it shortly, we’re getting hauled out next Monday or Tuesday and I want to run it before we’re out of the water.
On the bright side, drier weather is moving into the area. This is great news and should allow me to get some fiberglass work done on the deck.
We’re in the home stretch, all we need is some dry weather, some parts to arrive, and plenty of time to reassemble things. Perhaps the wonders of modern medicine and over-the-counter drugs can help us meet our departure date?
