(for the boat geeks, I have been rebuilding as needed and cleaning and maintaining our winches. Two of them were completely seized and I was told by a rigger and an old salt that it couldn't be fixed. Especially by a woman. Ha! They spin like a top and purr like a kitten now thank you very little.)
But I feel like this the the calm before the birthday/ visiting friends/ visiting relatives/ camp/ camping/ packing for adventures near and far storm. It's a good storm, these are all things we want to do and are so looking forward to, however it will be a whirlwind one way or another. We'll just adjust our metaphorical sails and move forward with the warm winds.
