Things I have done on my sabbatical so far

Gotten my shellfish permit so I can go clamming.
Made a roaring fire with only one match.
Planted lots of alyssum and petunias.
Eaten many cups of clam chowder, not all at the same time.
Slept with four blankets and still been cold.
Read one Nantucket-based murder mystery which has made me scared at night.
Set-up my internet connection and downloaded 10,000 emails.

So far, so good.
