I haven't been counting yard days toward my goal because I thought they felt too similiar to work.  This past weekend convinced me that sometimes they're not.  Right now Dobbs and I are working on quality of living improvements on our 1966 Columbia 31: Encouraging the composting process of the head and fixing long-standing leaks that let in rainwater.  A difference between working on our own boat versus clients' boats is that we can work at a relaxed pace if we want to.  If, like on Saturday morning, I want to spend an hour practicing baseball stitch, and then ultimately use a different stitch to sew leather chafe guards on the dock lines, I can!  It feels good to let my brain and hands explore the process.  I sat in the cockpit, working in the sun, even though the day was cool and windy.
