Back last summer I said I would only post if there is something interesting to say. Apparently, there has not been anything interesting in the last eight weeks—or else, maybe I’ve just been too busy?
So here is a quick summary:
We have both received the Moderna vaccine. We had a rough day after the second dose, but are fine now and edging back into normalcy. As you shall see . . .*
I’ve been weaving a rug now for a number of weeks. It is a new experience for me and I’ve been taking my time with it. Trying to enjoy the process.
Roger has been way busy with building a kiln to burn wood into biochar with the heat produced used to help heat the house.
It snowed in February and that snow stuck around for a week. I think it pushed Spring back a bit here at Thornbush but we are way in it now.
Our grandson Corbin got to come here for a sleepover on his 9th birthday. We rode the ferries back and forth to pick him up and deliver him. *First time in over a year.
People have been asking about the cottage.* So here is a little of what we’ve been doing all winter:
- Take a log from a pile of them in the woods and mill it into boards and battens.
- Cut the lumber into the correct length and finesse it a bit with the table saw.
Put as much of it as we have on the cottage addition that same day
Look at Pinterest a lot to see tile ideas for when we get done with the outside. The shower parts are there but not installed. The tile guy is coming over this week to check it out. We have hot water and a sink and a toilet. Mostly but not completely insulated.
Ventured on to the mainland yesterday to pick up a yellow plastic kayak from a friend. Then got to visit with kids and grandkids and take the twins out to a real restaurant for their fifteenth birthday.*
