More company… I changed the oil and filter in the car. Susan cleaned it out and we got ready to do some packing for Dirttime. Our oldest son came up with a load of compost and his boat. We unloaded the compost and went fishing. Youngest daughter came up in the afternoon. The weather was intermittent rain and cold all day. The fishing was good. Lots of fish biting but not many large enough to keep. We went to Murphy Lake. They have some good sized Pike and bass in it but we only caught one bass and no Pike. Lots of perch and sunfish. Murphy is a warm water lake and takes an extra license stamp to fish in it.

Needed to go into Eureka to take care of some business then spent the day packing and taking care of the garden. We filled the water reservoir above the sink and the barrel in the house. then took the empty jugs into town to refill them on the way home. Went over list of things for youngest son to do while we were gone. Lots of concern for the garden. It’s supposed to get pretty warm and sunny and some of the new plants are at a tender stage in development. Hopefully they’ll do okay while we’re gone.
