There's nothing like traveling on the water in the wintertime. More than likely it's only your group you see. So many folks miss some great boating because they won't go out in the wintertime. They don't know what they are missing.
We spent the weekend at Garlic Brothers. Friday we had lots of trouble getting our power hooked up on the dock. It's cold and you need a heater to stay warm. Well there was a guy there in a great big 48 Sea Ray aft cabin wearing a Tommy Bahama shirt (I call them bowling shirts), and he came to let us know that he didn't have any power and that the boat plugged into the same line as his needed to hook somewhere else. There wasn't anywhere else for this boat. His comment? I'm a permanent bearther here. Translation? I'm more important than you and I have a much better boat. Oh this attitude is very prevalent in many parts, and more often than not it's attached to the Sea Ray club. We have a Sea Ray, but we refused to join the Sea Ray Club. Snooty isn't even close for many of them. Bless their hearts.
The sun is a wonderful thing. It's a bright sunny day here even though it's cold. The sun is a great way to recharge your batteries. We live in fog country and there have been years that all of January and February we are socked in with fog. I've had to drive up past the fog line to get some needed sun. Didn't have to worry about that this past weekend.
I won three books at a book giveaway at Jody's Book Reviews. They are: Dearly Depotted, Mums the Word and Slay It with Flowers. I finished reading the last of the three and I'm going to pass them along to Sandy of Lil' Maddies Meemaw. Getting them in the mail and on their way to Sandy is on my to do list this week.
I've also eaten pretty much whatever I have wanted this past weekend. I had baked garlic with toasted bread on Friday afternoon, sausage and eggs with hash browns and sourdough toast on Saturday morning and a great tri-tip, salad and chicken and pasta dish for dinner. Then on Sunday morning we had burgers at Bob's at the Marina. Tuesday morning I will step on the scales to see the damage. I don't feel guilty one bit.
Have a terrific day, and a great week everyone.
