February In Numbers
It's time for the monthly recap in numbers - an assortment of odd tidbits and random thoughts that popped into my head when I was reflecting back on the month. Just like the previous month, February was all about boat projects and getting ready to head to the Bahamas. We can almost see the finish line and hopefully we'll be on our way soon. Fingers crossed nothing else breaks before then.
1 - Number of loaves of bread I baked. It's been ages since I've baked bread and I'm trying to get back in the swing of things considering a loaf costs nearly $6 in the Bahamas.
25 - The number of breakfast burritos Scott ate. It's his favorite breakfast. Two scrambled eggs with jalapenos, maybe some bell pepper and onion, a little bit of cheese and some salsa, all wrapped up in a tortilla.
5 - Number of packages of tortillas we have on board. Plus flour so I can make more once we run out. Packaged tortillas have a long shelf life, which is great when it comes to provisioning for an extended cruise.
2 - Number of times I made pancakes. One of my favorite breakfasts.
5 - Number of times we ate out or got takeaway.
$10 - How much we put into a pool at a Superbowl party.
$0 - How much we won.
2 - How many winches we serviced (they're the contraptions that you wrap your lines around to pull in the sails). We each did one. It involved taking them apart, cleaning the old grease out of them (they were gunky), relubricating them and putting them back together.
1 - Number of days off we had from boat projects. It was chucking down rain and we lazed about.
4 - Number of dogs I've seen running around off-leash at the marina lately. It's a topic of some debate here - should well-behaved dogs be allowed to run around off-leash? Cats do, why can't dogs? What do you think?
2 - Number of friends who just completely changed their cruising plans. We had assumed we'd see them again this year. Now we probably won't. That's the nature of cruising and RVing - you have to say goodbye to friends along the way.
In case you missed them, here are some of our favorite posts from last month:
