Tuesday, December 6th

Today was a melancholy day.  We moved the boat to it’s new home at Port la Robine….another indicator that our time here is ending.

Craig spent the morning prepping the boat for winter.  He came up to the cottage to get some bleach for the water tanks and returned looking like this……

Oh, well, guess I know what he needs for Christmas.

Dinner was Austrian Tafelspitz (beef simmered with root vegetables) served with applesauce, horseradish and egg noodles.  Not only did this diminish our reserve of applesauce, horseradish and egg noodles, we used the leftovers as a base for Italian Minestrone…..helping to empty the cupboard of stewed tomatoes, kidney beans and penne pasta.  It was truly a United Nations evening.  

Too bad the cottage reeked of bleach.

“Humor has a way of bringing people together. It unites people. In fact, I’m rather serious when I suggest that someone should plant a few whoopee cushions in the United Nations.” ~ Ron Dentinger
