I did five loads of laundry, which included the sheets and comforter covers off of two bunks.
That in inself is work, because I have to hang the sheets and covers on the lifelines to dry and in the process try not to drag the sheets across the deck, as there is always some dust somewhere...
Then make the two bunks, one being a v-berth in the starboard hull and the other our queen in the port hull.
That is real "work"...
Because! You have to crawl on top of the sheets as you are making the bunks!
Remember it's been 90-95 degrees inside the boat with humidity lately...
For you boaters, you will understand this.
For you landers, try making your bed next time while always being on top of the bed.
No cheating by walking around the bed.
Pretend there are walls around all sides of your bed except one, which is pretty high off of the floor.
Then I converted one comforter cover from a king size to a queen size ~ measured, sewed and cut off the excess.
Then I sewed up the fronts of a bunch (maybe 15?) of shirts that needed some altering.
This would have been easy, but when we were cleaning out our storage in Alta California, I found a huge supply of different colors of thread.
Mostly silk and mostly ancient...
So it was kind of disentegrating on me after a few stitches and making for a half hour job on each shirt instead of a three minute job.
Oh so many different colors ~ so many times to fill the bobbin!
Whose thread was this anyway? Mom's? Grandma's? Sarah's?
I also washed some dishes, put two small pre-marinated chickens in the crockpot, cleaned the floor, put towels on the settee (sweating too much ~ need to protect the cushions).
Took a shower.
Jim cleaned up.
Jim bought coffee beans.
Doinked around on the internet watching tropical weather.
Watched a little "Explora" on Joost about native dress on people in Zimbabwe.
And some about tigers in India.
Went to bed and sweated.
The nights have changed... not so cool anymore...
So Glad I Went to the Doctor!
