Later in the day a friend called to say he was coming out for a visit. When he asked if he could bring anything I jumped at the chance to ask for a bottle of wine. Met him at the dock and he handed me a bag of milk. "I know you've quit drinking, so brought you milk, instead of wine."
He didn't fool me for long, though. I can recognize a bottle of wine stuffed inside a bag.
We did a fair bit of clearing around the cabin yesterday and enjoyed a nice fire in the evening. Smoke was still rising from the ashes this morning as we watched out the window while polishing off steak, eggs, hash browns and apple pie for breakfast.
