And on another challenge I've set for myself. I'm not, um, lazy, exactly, but I will take any excuse avoid doing something unpleasant. I'm lazy about doing stuff that doesn't seem like fun. What do you call that? Lazy? Anyway, I realize that this is a big liability and even more so as a cruiser where self-sufficiency counts for a lot and often entails unpleasant jobs. So I'm working on plowing through the impulse to avoid them and do what needs to be done and today was a big victory on that front.
April's friend Elsa lent us a copy of her brother-in-law's (Mike Litzow, of thelifegalactic.blogspot.com) book, South From Alaska, which I think is only distributed in Australia. We started reading that this afternoon and we're really enjoying it. It's very nicely written, about a very identifiable couple, and very encouraging that this can in fact be done.
April made delicious grilled salmon with garlic, lemon and pepper for dinner. I might just become a seafood lover yet.
