  • Still winter where I am

    Some oy you will probably consider me nuts, but I really enjoy staying up in the mountains at the cabin at this time of the year. The attached pictures shows the guests I had on Sunday. The two first frames where shot through the window, while the last one was taken in a hurry before they ran away when seeing me on the stairs.. - Sorry, Santa was not around!

    Better you than me. Looks like a beautiful place. Love to see pix of the area in all seasons if you have some.

        I'll take that over the blazing heat any day. I must be part eskimo as I do prefer the cold.

          Great pictures.
          I sure don't like it when gets in the mid 90's, but I don't like it when it's in the teens.

            Hi Ivar - I guess that beats having bears nuzzling around at your back door! Nice guests ...

            88F (31C) here today at home and boy am I glad we live at altitude and there's little or no humidity.

              Ivar, that sure looks pretty. I spent years in the cold weather, but it is nice to only wear shorts and Crocs all day long.

                Ivar, I like your visitors. It is great to watch all of the wildlife, wherever you may be. Oh, by the way, my grandad came from Norway & settled in the midwest state of Iowa. I spent most of my life there, looking at wildlife there. Now, I spend the warm winters in Arizona. The problem is, the summers. Today it was 95 degrees F. Enjoy your cabin & the life around it. Take Care

                  I enjoy being inside toasty and warm while looking at the snow outside. Being out in it is a different story. By the looks of it, you live in a beautiful location. Nice pictures.

                    Something up in a tree

                    Thanks for nice comments!

                    I don't know, but maybe they caused the visitor having his breakfast of birch buds this morning. Would have been nice with a better lense.. They were actually two, but his fellow was in an impossible position for a shot from the window. When I went outside they both left before I got my camera up. - Just to keep you from wondering: Blackcock (Tetrao tetrix).

                      This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

                      Cute Pattern.
                      I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                      This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                      No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
