Mr. Beaver

Whilst walking the other day, Ramona and I happened upon this busy fellow getting his home prepared for the spring.

We saw him last year as well, when he shared his disapproval of our swimming along the rocky shore near his home. He didn't seem thrilled to have his photo taken either, I have a sneaking suspicion that he doesn't care too much for me and my dog at all!

Miniature Living

I made everything in this little room and that makes me really happy. - click on the picture for a larger view on flickr.

(By "tomorrow," I obviously meant "day after tomorrow"... oh well.)

Tools and Such

What could this mess be about? Its been spread out over the dining room table for the past three days, and I am having so much fun!

I'll show the results tomorrow...

(or you can have a look on flickr, I just couldn't wait!)

A Flash of Spring

This past weekend, Spring popped in for a visit. Though I sorely wish it would have stuck around, at least it served as a reminder that eventually warm weather, mud, rain, and most of all warmth will return to the North.

Of course, we all know that Spring will come eventually. At least we can be reasonably certain, as it has a pretty good track record thus far. Still, at this time of year - when the winter boots have started leaking just a little and the winter jacket could really use a good launder, when closed-window radiator-heated air has turned skin into sandpaper, fingernails into flimsy shells and hair into a frazzled frizzy mess best kept under a hat, when waking up in the morning to fresh snow is so depressing the only option is to crawl back into bed - I begin to, not doubt exactly, but feel a desperate urgency bordering on mania, for the end of winter.

Perhaps a warmer climate would be a healthy choice.

Home Improvements


recently became this:


(and floor)

And to celebrate I made these:

Even better? There is more Home Improvement on the way! (That pink ceiling is high on my list, and the buzzing fluorescent light - I swear, those cupcakes were not at all green in real life...)
