Back to work.

We’ve survived the flu!   We were supping on Tamiflu for two in the week since Christmas.   Not what I had imagined for the end of my vacation, but…. it is what it is.  And we are all better now!   Just in time to get back to work.  :/

Temps have been dipping low again in the 20s overnight.   We are keeping warm with hot cocoa, and a dose of mini marshmallows, of course.  It makes the work day go by faster.

Goin’ fishin’.

Hot cocoa.

Today we headed out to the lake to spend the afternoon on the boat.  It’s been a long time since I have been out there.  I’m happy to report that our dock is still attached to land.  It has rained several times since the beginning of November (thankfully), so the lake has risen several inches, and at least has not dropped, so they are holding off on moving us offshore.

I made a steaming hot batch of cocoa for the thermos, so that we could fend off the cold, and packed the peppermint schnapps and mini marshmallows.

We picked up Joe on B-dock and motored out into the cove armed with Joe’s fishfinder and several poles to see what we could catch.   I caught a small catfish.  Monte got a small bass.  Mostly we just listened to Christmas carols on the iPod and watched the blobs go by on the fish finder.

It was a nice way to spend a Sunday.
