I love days like today. First of all, the weather was great for working outdoors, which all 3 of us did. James was planting in the garden for several hours. I'm not sure what he planted, but I'm sure it will be on our plates this summer. His spring garden is doing really well.
When he was done in the garden he glazed windows.
A large portion of one of our sugar maples fell during one of our recent windy days, so Adam spent the day cutting it up, a job neither James nor I would want to do, nor have the strength for (at least I don't).
I spent my time building a grate for a fire pit. It's made from parts of an old gate, a wood stove, and other random pieces found here and there. Don't look closely at the welds. They're not pretty, but they're strong and once it blackens from a fire you'll never notice my amateur welding job.
I plan to make more grates for a project I'll tell you about in a future blog. They'll all be made out of scraps we already have. Can you say, "cheap"?
Maia and Baxter did their part by protecting us from the groundhog that lives under the barn. They're obsessed with it and determined to catch it.
All-in-all, it was a very productive day. Now we're beat.
