Breakfast & Battles, Scrapbooking and Broncos
Ellie went to a Superbowl party with Kohlton and his father, Mark. That meant that Larr and I had a quiet day together. We spent part of the day enjoying the beautiful day while sunning on the couch like a couple of cats. I also had a chance to work on a bit of scrapbooking. I really should have been cleaning the craft room, but my sewing machine is in need of repair, so it would have been a bit sad to work in there since I designs for a new table runner for the table in the big room.
Ethan called this evening to give us an update. He is incredibly tired, but also very happy. He has blisters on his hands; I imagine that it is pretty typical for a brand new sailor.
He tells me that they are awoken in the morning by Rosie the cook singing a nice song so that they can wake up quietly. Rose is a good cook, Ethan tells me. For breakfast this morning she made homemade blueberry muffins and a nice eggs dish. Lunch was homemade pizza. I think it is pretty impressive that Rose can make such wonderful food in a galley kitchen. I'm glad to know that Rose will be feeding my boy well.
This afternoon they took part in another battle. I thought that it was a mock battle, but I am wrong. The ship use real gun powder to shoot the cannons. This sends a blast of air and sound that has a specific tone, depending on what part of the ship that is hit. Today they won. I am sure a rematch is already scheduled.
