|A set of candlesticks|
|Oh look! It's a candlestick made from |
oak. I actually quite like this one. I also
thought that Ian could do some wooden
beads for me. I bought an e-book
Wee Felt Folk that uses wooden beads for heads of the wee folk. Perfect!
|Leaking into the walls above the window, it then trickled|
along the window top and down both sides of the window.
A bit worrying when the weather gets so cold. We need to
make sure the water is out of the walls before we let the
apartment cool down
|This was the worse part that kept|
dripping all day. There is a hole
that the pipe obscures that Ian
made to make it easier to drain
|Yes! You've guessed it! Another|
candlestick, this time made from alder. Mind you I think this is
|The sun beginning to rise|
|A frosty scene|
|A recipe from one of my friends. Equal|
parts of grated ginger, lemon cut up
small and honey. Add to tea!
Makes a nice warming cup of tea,
great for beating off the colds this time
of year. Not that I get many of those!
"You deserve a cuddle... then a few more years and he will be ready to work the land with the rest of you!!!"Obviously the arrival of babies sets our minds to the future and we were wondering what our grandchildren's reaction would be to coming to see us. Will it be oh great we are going to see grandma and pops, because there are animals to feed, land to kick around on, loads of insects to observe and fight off, a pond to study, a forest to walk in, a chance to eat fresh eggs , animal tracks to look at and in winter a chance to ski as often as you like, or snowboard down an old Soviet ski hill for free and ride a sleigh with a neighbour's horse? Or will it be, oh no do we have to go there, there is nothing to do? It's miles from anywhere? No decent shops? We would love to think that maybe one day a grandson would come and share with us working on the land, but neither would we want that to be an expectation on such a young one. A child of reconciliation though would be good out here.
|Not a candlestick! Are you shocked? This is for the pull on|
a blind and is made from Aspen.
Updated labels to the post - in other words I forgot to add them first time around
