Our friend Matt is in town, and he brought his wood-burning tool with him. So I thought I'd try my hand at it. (No pun intended.) It was harder than I thought it would be, but I did manage not to burn myself.
The difference between making stuff on my day off and making stuff the rest the week is that I keep the day-off stuff (or give it away), as opposed to selling it.
My beautiful cousin Abby and her equally beautiful (and very silly) little one Lucy are in town too. Lucy, who is almost 5, showed up bedecked in her finest princess attire and headed straight to the treadmill. It was rather surreal watching this tiny, sparkly, pink person walking in place for a good half hour. Then it was off to the hot tub, followed by a bath (did I mention she's a water bug?). When sleep was finally given in to, it was grown-up time! We all sat around the fire listening to Abby sing her beautiful songs and enjoying each other's company until sleep was finally given in to by all.
This morning, my dad is taking us girls out in his boat.
It's an old boat.
An old, small, rather neglected boat.
Wish us luck.
If I survive, I'll post pictures.
