Yesterday returned to the cold, overcast and slightly deary kind of May day I’ve grown accustomed to in Michigan. Â We stayed home and watched The History Channel from morning until night. Â It was our typical winter weather Sunday and I was happy when the sunshine came out again and all things boating were a go. Â Last year I ruined a perfectly beautiful Memorial Day after drinking too many Sambuca shots at a friend’s birthday the night before and there was no moving my ass from the living room floor. Â Once we got out this year I assumed Matt would want to get the sails up as soon as possible. Â I was all set to start pulling and winching lines when he suggested we just rest for awhile and get the sails up later. Â Although I had gotten myself geared up for a sail I had no problem switching to lounge mode, pulling out a sport-a-seat and a magazine. Â The dodger and bimini provided a perfect amount of shade, and all I was missing was a tall handsome servant named Geoffrey serving me chilled wine while I relaxed.
As the day wore on Matt was no closer to getting the sails up and I had relaxed in the cockpit, the cabin, and had even taken a nice nap in the v-berth. Â I had gotten to the point where I had been doing nothing for too long and now I didn’t want to do anything productive. Â Matt must have been on the same page as me when I asked if he wanted to go out (just cause I’m a good wife) and he asked if I wouldn’t mind sitting at the mooring for the rest of the day. Â No problem here. Â For a few more hours we lounged around snacking, relaxing, and enjoying our home away from home. Â The only productive thing we did do is when leaving Matt had me pull out the camera while we circled the boat for a 360 degree view. Â Enjoy!!
