Okay…. this past weekend I posted about Steveio cutting down a big rotting tree. Seems Mr. Woodpecker wasn’t too happy about Steve removing his favorite pecking tree…. so he came to check out our suet block on the back deck!
This guy is just HUGE! He takes up almost half the height of our deck railing to the ground. They are normally a very shy bird according to my bird book, and rarely come to a feeder or around houses. So I managed just a few shots before he flew off. Guess the suet block isn’t as good as the tree full of bugs!
Let’s see… next item
The table loom that Steveio was restoring for me, now it’s all warped up, tensioned off and ready to weave!
(winding on the warp) (ready to weave)
Some weaving folks don’t like the whole process that is necessary to get the loom ready to weave.. but I do. Each time I touch the fibers, measure the strings, plan the project, it is all a labor of love for me. The FUN part is the weaving… but the warping is the WORK. Let’s just say: “I enjoy going to work” LOL
Last night Steveio left for his union meeting about 5:30pm it was snowing lightly when he left. WOWZER by the time he came home at 9pm, it was about 10-12 inches of fresh new snow! I kept the lights on out on the deck just to watch the snow coming down.
I snapped these last night about half way through the storm
Now this morning, it’s starting to blow around… the winds are picking up and making a real mess of what Steveio already snowblowed outta the driveway and sidewalk. I snapped these shots before the winds blew it around too much… The poor birds are digging around in the snow trying to find the seeds underneath!
Today my little Chelsea princess will be here, and perhaps I will weave a bit during her naps. I think its bread baking day too (in the bread machine) Life is good!
