I am not inspired by the brown world out there, none of the brownness excites me to take photographs.
I wore my red plastic boots outside and played in the mud with Chance. I took him over to a snowy area to get cleaned off. We lost a couple of balls. We watched the birds and listened for sounds of spring.
We still have our usual year round birds. Nuthatches, Chickadees and Woodpeckers.
The snow stick stands at about 10 inches.
Far Guy and one of his friends went woodcarving yesterday to a shop in Moorhead Minnesota. They wanted to visit and see what was happening at Larry’s. Thursdays is open carving there. Several Retired Air Guard guys are carving there so Far Guy had a good visit.
Chance and I spent the day doing odd ball stuff that never shows and playing in the mud. Chance was certain that Far Guy was never coming back…he is so pathetic sometimes.
See how sad he looks?
March 1st I made some goals for the month.
I hope to work out the kinks in a new Christmas ornament design…and then decide if it is possible to do 65 of them. R & D is complete, it is possible. I have purchased the paint and the string to use for hangers and Far Guy is cutting out the rough shapes and we have begun carving them. Each ornament has six pieces so it is no easy project. We are starting early enough that we should be able to complete them in plenty of time and perhaps even sell a few…in my humble opinion they are beautiful and will be hard to top next year.
Finish the afghan I started as a 2013 Christmas Gift for Jen. In progress but not yet done.
Have the annual snow stick contest on the blog. The carvings are done. Just waiting for the snow to melt at the snow stick!
Work on Far Guy Military Scrapbook…it has been on my desk since New Years. It is still on my desk.
In other news:
The Income Taxes have been completed and electronically filed. The refund we get back will be spent all in one place…doesn’t take long to spend nine dollars.
I am still working on transcribing Far Guys Grandparent’s Farm Diaries it is slow going.
We had one exciting night out at the neighbors playing cards! It was good to look at a different four walls.
