How is your spring going?
We have been busy with cattle for the last couple of months but have found time for a couple of other projects.
The carpet in our bedroom has needed replacing for some time now. We decided to do a hardwood floor to match most of the rest of the house. And Les managed to fit it into his already crazy schedule. Sanding is dusty business!
I have been working on building a few garden boxes and laying out the vegetable garden in a way that will decrease the amount of time spent weeding. Or at least the amount of time we should have been weeding. I confess, we haven’t been very good at it over the last few years! We also want to finish up the treehouse you see in the background.
I have completed a few paintings. This is a sample.
I currently have a landscape for my daughter in the works but I have got to a point where I am a little intimidated. So it sits until I gather up some courage to complete it!
I have also been taking a few online art courses when I can fit them in. If I remember correctly, I told you about the yearlong Wanderlust art journaling course I am doing for 2021. This is part of one of those projects. With a theme of recycling, I was able to include a piece of paper I found in one of my parents’ sheds. It is my dad’s handwriting with his mix for grass seed. I love that it is safely tucked into a journal.
We have lots of plans for this year’s spring and summer season, including building a shop. Which will take up a good portion of Les’ time. And I always have an idea or two I am working on. I’m looking forward to being outside and enjoying the fresh air!
