smart man.

lobsterman has a very good eye. we were camping in rangeley a few weeks back and stopped at a yard sale. he found this old hunk of junk camp oven that was for sale for $1. it was in rough shape. so what does he do?

turns it into a wine holder. the man is a genius!

things i forgot.

but recently realized once again.

1. Mr. Goodbars are so good and highly underrated. I think they sprinkle them with crack.

2. Walking into town without my debit card means I won't buy things. Genius!
Except when I see my favorite antique store literally tossing things out the window at insane discounted prices and I am without wallet. Dumb!

3. Wearing backpacks are comfortable.

4. Knowing how to sew a button is probably the best home ec still I could have ever held on to.

that is all.

i really need it to be friday.


lobsterman is going to be hauling traps soon - in two weeks. he will be mostly on the midcoast while i'll be busy redecorating our apartment in his absence. you know. to keep busy.

what are your summer plans thus far?

i am launching my etsy shop this weekend. hip, hip, hurray!

any guesses on what i'll be selling?

Ocean Time.

But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean.
