Thursday, 7/4/2019 – Sunday, 7/7/2019 – Since the 4th of July fell on a Thursday this week, we decided to take Friday off and spend a long, holiday weekend at the boat and we are really happy we did! We got a TON of boat projects checked off our to do list and enjoyed some hearty doses of rest and relaxation, too! If you’re interested, you can check out what we got accomplished over here – https://smalllivingbiglife.home.blog/maintenance-log/ – on the page we’ve started to keep track of all of our maintenance and improvements. Here’s some snapshots of our holiday weekend…
Wednesday, 7/10/2019 – After some lengthy tinkering with the dinghy motor didn’t solve the “it keeps stalling out” problem, we figured it was time to spend some money replacing some key components that may be the culprits. Dinghy motor parts were delivered today and Josh disappeared to the garage to fix the damn dinghy motor, once for all.
Saturday, 7/13/2019 – Sunday, 7/14/2019 – Back to the boat for another round of projects toting a few tubes of Dow 795, a sewing machine and some laundry detergent.
Friday, 7/19/2019 – Sunday, 7/21/2019 – They’re calling for a 100°+ heat wave this weekend? Great, let’s go tent camp with no electricity at Dutch Springs!
We actually had a pretty good justification for sweating our asses off camping at Dutch Springs for the weekend. Saturday was Women’s Dive Day and both Josh and I had volunteered to help. Despite the blistering heat, it was a great day. Josh got to get some more boxes checked off on his divemaster checklist, too.
Monday, 7/22/2019 – I was given yet another stark reminder of why we have decided to sell our stuff, quit our jobs and go live our lives as fully as we possibly can…Tomorrow isn’t promised to any of us and life certainly isn’t going to wait until it’s “convenient” to experience adventures.
Saturday, 7/27/2019 – Sunday, 7/28/2019 – We spent the weekend on the boat with Josh’s brothers. And, I’m pretty happy to report that I did not take one single picture all weekend long. Actually, I nearly forgot about my phone all weekend long. It was a perfect weekend of swimming, eating and a whole lot of laughing! Let’s do it again, soon, guys!
