I spent half my morning shoveling – not snow, but a pile of rocks (pea stone for the garden beds/paths), and then did some raking.
C’mon it’s the middle of January people! I should have been shoveling a foot of snow, and then had a nice warm bowl of soup, I shouldn’t be outside without a jacket and hat!...
Perhaps the powers that be heard that I like Fall the best, and are prolonging the season for my pleasure! If so, I’d like to request a mild and brief winter, a pleasant spring (as dry as possible without ecological consequenses. and a perfect, slightly mild summer, temperatures as close to 72 as possible, and a nice long growing season! That or make fall last all year, with a little snow on Christmas morning.
Cleaning the house, looking for things to keep or toss (in an attempt to get through my ridiculous project backlog), i found a couple more to add to the woodworking list (Will it ever end! Will I ever learn?)
I came across a box of short stool legs, I suppose I was going to make my daughter a small table and chair – suppose I’d better get to that before she’s too big for such things – if she isn’t already – or perhaps I’ll make some nice footstools?
I also found a few pieces of Ipe I bought off eBay. Was going to make a birdhouse or feeder. At least that project has no mandatory completion date!
So, I guess theres two more logs onto the projects pile! at least I have the materials, so they’re essntially “Free”. As I head up to the attic to clear out some more stuff to take to the dump, who knows what else I’ll find!
Modified resolution: Everything I’ve previously started, will get finished this year, or will “go away” I will have a blank slate (or rather only a “to do”, not a “when will you ever get this done” list!
