Lessons in How to Save a 'Boat Marriage'

Eric and I have been living on the boat ... Eric more than myself, but pretty much full time now on the weekends. It's a great life in the open air but with a 20-minute row first thing in the morning and then a 15-minute walk to Dunkin Donuts for coffee, we were both, how shall I say, extremely grumpy.

But then, the Little Cod arrived. What a beautiful thing this stove has turned out to be. Hot coffee in the morning, pasta with pesto later on in the day, and then a little lemon cake and hot tea for a Mother's Day celebration this afternoon. It makes the lack of a real shower a whole lot more bearable.

I think I am in love.

If I'd known that all it would take to get you to fall in love is to get hot enough to make a teakettle whistle, I could have saved myself a lotta trouble darlin.

Sounds very cosy! and BTW, the quickest way to the heart, sometimes for women too, is through the stomach.
