Imagine MY surprise when Alexa told me it was December 1st. SAY WHAAAA?!?!?
So, yes the monthly giveaway is a few hours late. Seriously, this retirement thing means I have lost all sense of time.
Here is my monthly update. Deck FINISHED!!! All the way!! All the way to the stain even!! Even more exciting is that the BBQ is finally out of my kitchen!!!!!!!!! I was so tired of that big eye sore sitting there since May.
Barn. UP done. HUGE!! (there is a shadow on the barn so look UP!) Tractor and 4×4 safely nestled inside. This thing is monstrous!! The Husband even has a workshop area! Course until the stove get’s installed it’s a tad on the chilly side in there. Like 1°. Truthfully, he’s been good enough to stay inside lately. (insert evil laugh here! AND a snicker)
We’ve been cleaning up the yard too. Seem that contractors are a messy bunch. So, lots and LOTS of scraps of wood, a million pounds of nails. Yup, that was a whine. Since there has been constant construction around here I have done zip-zero-nadda in yard work so the weeds are knee high. So we’ve worked on that too. Had to clean up branches that fell due to our 60mph winds last week. The yard looks way better. Surprisingly, still no snow. *except a small amount in October, which is completely gone. It is, however, cold enough to make ice molds! If you’re asking yourself why ice molds? Ummmm cause they are cool?
I have made another friend up here in Sandpoint. A KNITTER!! Can I get a whoot whoot!! I learned to knit. I made my first project an infinity scarf. I have to admit Marilee asked repeatedly if I was sure I wanted that many stitches on my needle. OF COURSE I do. Ummmmm soooooo basically an experienced knitter knows what she’s talking about!! This scarf is GINORMOUS!! Like I can pull it down around my shoulders, truthfully, it’s a round blanket. But when the wind chill gets to the negative I won’t be crying. (however there WILL be whining!!) I started a throw for The Husband with the softest, fluffiest yard! I’m totally enjoying this hobby.
Mostly, I’ve been holed up in my amazing craft-room. I tried my hand at felting. I made a blue bird. Now, mind you this is my VERY first ever attempt. However, not too bad. It was fun and one of those things that you can just zone out and do. I attempted a Christmas ornament too.
Now I’m working on a t-shirt for Alice with an iridescent vinyl in the shape of a snowman…. cause y’know every California kid needs a snowman. It’s so shiny!!!! BTW…… that kid! Taking ARCHERY!! Doing Mud Runs. I really hate that I am missing this! I requested a nice picture of Selena and Zac from Thanksgiving. My kids…………. they DO crack me UP!!! So sarcastic……. must get it from their Dad.
