Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

No day at The Port is more treasured than The Sabbath.

God knows I couldn't survive this task without a Day of Rest and Reflection each week.

May you be as blessed as I am to know Him.

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

A light, cool breeze just after sundown was the most pleasant setting for rest last evening. Satisfaction from another full day of construction fed my appetite and I ate an extra portion of chicken and wild rice soup. I switched the bedding from winter to summer cloth and was vastly more comfortable...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Home once again. Rumors of "Civil War" moved the Crew to pitch in and purchase a Brass Cannon, Balls, and Powder for the Tower overlooking the Harbor before returning. A Cadre was selected to review security measures for The Port and make changes wherever necessary. We also got rid of all our paper ...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Hard labor must be reinforced with proper rest and recreation. We set sail for The Mainland and took Liberty in Phoenix for the Independence Day Celebration. Met and broke bread with other Pirates and are taking an extra day to laze about before we return to Home Port. This trip was also needed to r...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Arrrr... ow! I feel good about the amount of work completed in the last two days but my fingers hurt again. My Father had arthritis and I fear I may follow in his footsteps. Thank God for aspirin. That and a Day of Rest that I look forward to more and more each week. Lord knows the value of The Sabb...

Field Nutrition & Supplements

Iodides are important. So important it is added into most table salts. I do not salt my foods and do not get anywhere near enough fresh greens until our crops begin to come in. I purchased some and use it daily - along with other items to 'supplement' my diet in order to fill in the blanks (of which...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Finally - a day with little to no wind. With 30% chance of rain Thursday & Friday and no wind to deter me I think I will refurbish the roof. I had two leaks last time and want to address them. I also have the plywood & lumber needed to put a cover between the residence and storage, giving me another...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

A short 1 hour run across to a neighboring tree-laden island gained us the lumber needed to finish Storage - plus some slats that look to be perfect for stairs leading to the Observation Post. Also scored some fresh meat and dinner will be a feast tonight!

Always a plate here for you,

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Wind is blustery enough it makes it difficult to work with plywood today. Quitting that project early as I need some more 2x4s anyway to frame the Storage Building Back Door. I have receipts to search for and other assorted inside duties I can occupy my time with and don't feel like digging rocks ou...
