a rainy sunday

DD and DH are on the boat for the weekend.... I came home a bit early to finish some painting chores. Unfortunately... most of these are outdoor painting chores and of course there is a thunderstorm right now. I was able to drag a few items into the barn to paint; but the deck and back step... I cannot move - perhaps another time. Fortunately though, I was able to paint a bench and hang up new bird boxes as well as tidy and sort the back deck and front porch:

A Faerie Garden

We love going for meandering walks in the forest.. in the hopes of finding some evidence of Faeries... I am also hoping to encourage faeries to live closer to home.. so we are trying to make our own garden a little more 'faerie-friendly'...

Skiing season is over for another year - sigh! But A rocked it. Putting away the ski equipment until next winter - but here's hoping we have more snow for the 2012-2013 season!

New Winter Sport

Last week... I took a day to work from home and kept DD home with me -- she needed a quiet day to catch up on rest (yes... we are wayyy too busy) and I needed a quiet office to catch up on work.

Grandma came over to look after DD for a bit in the afternoon; and the two devised a great outdoor game - Ice Bowling! Seeing as there is NO snow - which means no tobogganing or skiing or snowshoeing or footprint tracking... a new game was in order!

Ice Bowling offered a great way to utilize our abundance of fire wood with our over abundance of ice and voila -- an afternoon of fun and games!
