Thursday May 15 2014 Boonville CA.
I arrived at my friend Marty’s cabin just after noon on Tuesday. I stopped to open the gate to enter the road to the property and then just cruised on down to the cabin area. I found Marty relaxed in a chair sitting in front of his cabin. There was a cool breeze blowing which made for a real nice day.
I asked him what we needed to do today and he replied that the first day up at the cabin was a do nothing day. Ok, I can handle that, so we just sat around in our chairs shooting the bull for the rest of the day enjoying.
Van camp site
The next day, we got up and got going slowly. Eventually, I watched Marty hang a new piece of metal gutter over his stairs. I helped a bit once or twice, but mostly just supervised the job sitting in my chair keeping out of the way.
A little walk for exercise
That job didn’t take too long or wear me out much, but we took a break for awhile anyway before going up the hill for a little walk.
We drove his van up the hill above his cabin and parked the van, then started our walk down the hill back to his cabin.
That little hike wore us both out.We rested up a bit in the cabin before taking my van back up the hill to get his van. The rest of the day we sat around and just enjoyed the day again as the breeze was blowing very nicely.
Thursday, we got up late and eventually Marty got back up on the roof again to do some repairs. I mostly sat in my chair and supervised some more and I also played safety inspector warning him to be careful and not to fall off the roof.
The sun warmed the metal roof up too much and Marty quit until later in the day. We had lunch and took it easy until the sun started to go down a bit behind the trees then we resumed the work on the roof, with me supervising again.
Marty made short work of that, so he came down and gathered all his tools up and declared the rest of the day a no work day.
Made some noodles
It was my turn to cook. I decided on chicken noodle soup with home made noodles, so I made some dough, rolled it out and cut it into noodles.
I cooked up the noodles and some chicken and onions and eggs and combined everything for an old fashioned chicken noodle soup type thing.
That sure tasted good.
I decided to go back to my van to get something together so I can post a blog tomorrow when I go on up to Fort Bragg, CA. to kayak the Noyo River. I’ll try to find a place to post this in the town of Mendocino or Fort Bragg before I go kayaking if I can.
I’m at McDonalds in Fort Bragg posting this post. I’m headed over to do an evening kayak on the Noyo river.
Next post either tonight or tomorrow?
