I was sitting and looking out the window today.
I loved the shape of this pumpkin. It just looks
so fallish sitting outside. My chickens love eating
raw pumpkin as much as they like cantaloupe and
tomatoes. I have been cutting them open and letting
them have them. Our weather has been so all over
the place I think they might have colds. This is supposed
to help them. My young hens seem okay, it is the older
ones. I have two hens that were from my daughters
flock from when she was a teenager so they are old
I made these crows just to see if I could. After I got
them cut out of wood, I sat and and tried and tried
to figure out what to do with them. So I tried this.
It looks okay.
I made this bunch too. Primitive you think??
I do love my husbands tools. One thing I love about
him is he never complains that I leave sawdust everywhere.
I change the drill bits in the drill press. I fool around in
his tool box and I know I don't put every thing back
where it goes. He never complains, I am sure I would
complain about me.
I made this one with a candy corn. It looks okay too.
I can never figure out what is my favorite part, the cutting out
or the sanding or the painting. I like it all, but the really fun
part is hanging it up or giving it away.
So that is what I did on Friday. When I first started working
with wood I did it because I was home schooling boys. I needed
to do something with them. It was easy to teach the girls to cook
and to sew. The boys needed something too so when I first got my
saw, I was scared to death. I didn't like getting my hands dirty and
I did not like getting greasy. I kept at it and it became one of the
things I loved going out in the garage with the boys and cutting out
guns from wood or what ever they thought up.
I know that if I had never had kids, I might not have tried all of the
things I have.
I hope you have a lovely Saturday morning. It is supposed to be a bit
cooler. This weekend and into next week. I have to remember my kids
went without shoes until Halloween. Then when they would dress up
and we would go trick or treating it would be finally cold. I don't know
why I keep trying to rush it.
