Lilly & Beau spent evenings last week working with needle and thread.
I offered to draw a design for them to follow, but they chose to free-hand stitch.
Beau eventually had me turn his creation into a small pillow.
Mitch shoveled the roof today.
Many large buildings have been collapsing across our region, due to heavy snow loads this winter. We haven't had days warm enough to cause the snow to slide off as it normally would.
He said there was 4 ft. of snow on parts of our roof. Now there's an impressive mountain of it on the ground below.
I think we've seen the last of our -40° wind chills, boy has it been grizzly outside!
It continued to snow today while I worked on business bookwork & annual reports for tax prep. My most procrastinated task of the year, I'm glad to have finally conquered it.
A load of oak lumber has been delivered to a kiln to dry. Some will be made into flooring & some will be used as trim & finishing touches on our addition & transition areas.
'Til then, I'm thankful for warm fires, good books, and busy kids!
