Patty painted and freehand lettered the donation box.

It’s been a gray, windy, and wet day here on Seguin that started with us sleeping in a little and generally taking it easy all day long. We’ve been here just over a week and have been going pretty much non-stop since we arrived so we don’t feel too bad about getting just a few things done and otherwise taking the day to relax.

After breakfast, Patty whipped up some homemade pizza sauce for dinner later. We got the lettering on one of the donation boxes painted and ready to put back up – the rest of the box needs to be painted in place because we can’t back out the screws securing it to the kiosk. It was nice to have the door off though because it was easier to paint on a workbench than in place. Patty took everything out of the kitchen cabinets and drawers to thoroughly clean and organize them for our use.

Hanging the wet flags in our hallway at the end of the day.

In the late afternoon, we heard a Coast Guard alert (the first one we’ve heard) about a cabin cruiser taking on water at the mouth of the Sheepscot River. I went up in the tower to take a look and see if I could see anything with binoculars but I couldn’t. I think the visibility was good enough to see into the Sheepscot Bay but maybe not all the way up to the river or maybe it’s not even visible on a good day?

I also took care of getting our data plan updated since we used up all of our data accidentally in the first week. I also figured out how to set our connected in Windows to “metered” which supposedly will limit some of the background bandwidth usage like Windows updates. We’ll see… I hope so. After I got that squared away, I updated the FOSILS website with several blog posts to get it caught up.

For the rest of the afternoon, we listened to the Red Sox game, read, and just took it easy.

For dinner, Patty made a homemade pizza (except for the store bought crust) with sauce, mozzarella, cheddar, and Parmesan cheeses, and mushrooms. The day ended just as it began with gusting winds and generally damp conditions. We sat in the living room with the heater on and read until we called it an early night.
