Where are you guys, where have you been, we are getting worried.
It is Christmas eve. Chuck and I have spent almost the whole day together which is rare these days. As I write Chuck is putting the finishing touches on our Christmas video which will upload this evening or Christmas morning for some.
My afternoon was blissfully spent drifting around town using my camera for the first time in a long while. No video, no video.
For the where. We are in Petersburg, still, spending another memorable Christmas, enjoying the hospitality and friendship the town has to offer. The longer we stay the more friends we make and Julebukking has once again been the highlight of Petersburg's Christmas tradition.
Where have you guys been. My position at Waterways Veterinary Clinic has become a full time position as clinic/retail manager and assistant. All my personal friends will understand how much I am thoroughly enjoying myself by combining my love of animals, boating and retail. I am in doggy heaven. Chuck has been spending his afternoons editing video, writing, practicing the coronet and playing Island Music to local residents on KFSK radio.
Winter is here and Spring fast approaches. In January we fly to Seattle for the boat show. To complete Lealea's refit we need a new sink, a new cook stove, foam cushions for the main cabin and a few other bits and pieces. The real work begins again in March when Andy Cowan, our carpenter, says he will have time for the project.
Now, I must run. My sourdough rolls (made from 100 year old starter) are coming out of the oven. Chuck has just started baking the Christmas video and we are ready to sit down and begin our Christmas Eve tradition of binge watching our favorite video(s), "Horatio Hornblower".
To all our friends and family, don't worry. We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and we will see you soon
Chuck and Laura
