My family awoke, early last week, to -30C with a -40C windchill. I was choked. Somebody told me that The groundhog, aka Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators, didn’t see his shadow. I thought, “This groundhog is nuts!” We should be prepping the boat and getting ready for a great spring. But noooo, now our backyard rink is covered with drifting snow, and the garage doors are frozen to the ground.
I quickly headed over to Phil's Official Site, and realized that Phil did indeed see his shadow. 6 more weeks of winter. Bleh. I shoveled off the backyard rink and got ready for some pond hockey, but then the wind really whipped up. It was just too cold to get the kids outside. Sunny, but bone numbing cold.
Well, I have to think of something to keep me and my kids from going shack wackey ! So a little shop time for all is in order.
Yesterday afternoon, we headed over to the local box store and picked up an 8 foot x 16” laminated pine shelf. While the kids watched Madagascar 2 I took some time and knocked down some pieces for some birdhouses.
Not fine woodworking, but certainly fun woodworking!
It’s been a long time since I blogged something, so I thought I’d shoot everyone a line!
We’ll see where the kids get with assembly and finishing!
