Yesterday turned out to be a good fall day. I had the south facing doors open for a while in the afternoon. With the sunlight and lack of wind the shop stayed comfortably warm even though the outside temps were cool. But this is what we look like today. The forecast is for a high of 25°F and tonight it is predicted to hit 9°F. The wind is blowing pretty good too. I am definitely not ready for this. Dang. Take me somewhere that I can leave the shop doors open and the dogs ...
Barb was all excited this morning, when she saw our first snow . So she went out with her little camera. Enjoy! Some of this mornings beauty.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The snow tried to extinguish this Flaming Bush. Half of our backyard. The other half. Our Bird feeder. Petunias, & Snow trying to compete. Let’s sit down, & enjoy the Morning.
A Northern Version of YardWork And so up here in the land of snow, I was in need of doing some yardwork here recently and then more of….sometimes daily. So I thought I would post my version, of what that means for one such as I, who live’s in the north country come winter. So if you have your boots on and if you will please grab a shovel, then let us proceed for this mornings clean-up…. ....digging out my path to the shop has become a daily thing for me as I shovel...
The Best of Holiday Greetings, from Our House to Yours Living in northern Minnesota all of our lives, snow gets to be something you miss when it’s not here. It’s kind of nice to have pictures to remind you of what you’re missing, so we’d like to share a few with you. Our front yard2005 Our backyard2005 An evening of beauty2005
Surrounded by Wood and Snow ....and so once again the gods said; ”let there be snow” and on the second day of the new year there was…. Up here in New England I sometimes wonder if I’m being ‘snowed in’ or ‘snowed out’? I don’t have a lot of extra time this morning as I’m soon out the door, after some breakfast….to get this place opened up. Now some may wonder what’s the difference to being ‘snowed in’...
It seems that every year we get a cold snap here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I always like to take that opportunity do do something that I do not often get to do: complain about the weather!
Still Surrounded by Wood…. ....even after some multiple snows. And so life is good, living and working out in the elements of all seasons, while giving back to the wild of the land, some thoughts on imaging that have of recent days come my way. I had stated in my last blog story that the time of green picture images had come to an end, as I was being shifted now to a time of posting over the coming months, pictures of white granular icy snow. Snow falls following the downward pull...
I havent seen snow that stuck to the ground here in The Lowcountry in SC since 1989 right after Hurricane Hugo. But this evening we got about 4-6inches on the ground. Pretty Awesome if I must say. One story from tonight my 3yr old wanted to build a snow man. So I tried to throw something together and she said “Daddy, that looks like a snow turtle, and I was like I’m sorry I dont built these often”.
Well, winter finally arrived a couple of days ago…..6 inches of snow and -2 degrees F. Not so bad, but I was getting used to the idea of skipping winter this year. On a more pleasant note; I just celebrated my 1st year with LJ. I have enjoyed being a part of this great group of men and women, craftsmen and artists, with a common, yet diversified interest in things wooden. I have “met” so many great people in the past year and have even managed to meet a couple in person.Th...
When I awoke yesterday morning, I thought I was dreaming. It sounded like rain drops on our roof. Sure enough, it was raining like crazy. That was at 6 AM. About 2 hours later it started snowing, & we ended up with a little over 4”. This morning our back yard looked like a fairyland. Here is one of the images. HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE !!!
