E's job, time is both your friend and your enemy. As of right now - it is a friend. E has not had to set foot on a boat since got here; therefore, we've had a lot of leisure time. For me it means time for cooking and baking, jaunts to Astoria with him, and a sense of peace. For E it means he's running around all day every day like a madman - trying to squeeze every ounce of enjoyment out of this down time. For days he's been getting up seriously early and going fishing on the Columbia River with our neighbor. He's been brewing beer, helping me in the garden, kayaking, and generally having a grand ol' time.
In an effort to actually see my husband while he's on land I went with him disc golfing at a newly discovered place in Skamokawa, Washington. It's called Lucky Mud. I highly recommend it if anyone is ever in the area. It's quite a place. We ended up spending all day there because they had a little trouble deciphering the order of the disc golf baskets, and even where they were half the time. Well, you can probably see why.
