A Preview

Hint: There was water. There was a bike. There was running.
And there was a farmer's tan.

Whirlpool of Trouble

A bit of trouble - that's what seems to happen when three bored siblings are left alone* at my house. What happened at your house when you got in trouble?A swat with a wooden spoon or belt? A bar of soap in the mouth? A night with no dinner?

Well, it's a bit different for Little Boy Blue and Johnny Cherie. You don't even want to know what they did.

Alright you two, you may come out of the dryer now.

Let that be a lesson to you.
If this behavior continues, you know what's the fluff cycle for you!

*Always a fun day at the house when there is a camera phone, and empty dryer, and three bored siblings. I may or may not have tried to get in the dryer but something about my legs being waaaaaaaay too long and awkward to fit.

My Dad

I made this at the beginning of the year.

I prepped four cork boards.
I shopped and bought material. I covered the cork boards. I sanded.
I stained.
I glued reinforcement tabs on the back.
And I finished.
Oh, I forgot to mention that P2 helped. In fact, he cut the wood and drilled all the necessary holes. (It was freezing that morning if you can't tell.) So basically I'd just have some covered cork boards and a 10 foot 2x4 without his help.
P2, I love you. Thanks for the structure and framing you give to my life.
Happy (late) Father's Day. I'm glad I have you to call Dad!
