the end of a storage unit

I’ve finally buckled down and started going to town on my storage unit. Good news: it’s finally empty! Bad news: there’s crap everywhere. I feel like I have located about 75% of my life. 25% is still missing, and 50% can be sold or gotten rid of. I have a feeling I know where the 25% might be hiding, but I need to move a butt load of things to get to that space.

On the boat I have one box, in my car there is another box, and at work there’s another box and small suitcase under my desk. Some is ready to sell/donate, and some still needs to be gone through. As annoying and cluttered as everything has been, I’ve made significant progress and it feels great!

I’ve had to forgo cooking and brushing the dogs and cleaning in general, but there’s a quote I read recently that made me really want to kick into gear.

“Do what you need today, to do what you want tomorrow” (or something like that)

It’s not fun spending rainy Friday nights throwing crap away and trying to rearrange space, but, the better I do today will make it so much easier for tomorrow. Of the many hats I have worn in my life, I found my favorite one so far tonight! My Auntie gave me for my birthday just days before I moved aboard.



Holy crap, it’s cold!

It’s dark when I wake up. The sun is rising as I take off for work. It’s getting dark earlier in the night. I even had to turn my heater on last night.

It’s time to buckle up, this is going to be one of the last weekends I might have before pulling out the tarp! I better make sure all of the leaks are sealed and all my projects requiring a dry anything are completed!


a makeshift galley!!!!!!

I broke down and ordered a manual food processor to open up my world of cooking. I also happened to meet a woman who had received a small convection oven the size of a microwave as a gift, a gift she did not have room for.

This is so exciting!!! I got the food processor a little over a week ago and have already made a fennel salad, cauliflower mashed potatoes, pesto, zucchini noodles, and carrot salad. I love this thing! I had a space that was perfect for the Braville convection oven, I now just need a short extension cord to be able to plug it in and use it. Since I have moved my plug in cooler out of the way, I am hoping to be able to legitimately have people over for dinner now. YESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
