Yarn and a niddy noddy.

When I bought my drop spindle a few weeks ago I knew exactly what I was going to do. I wanted to make yarn and I wanted to incorporate the fur from our beautiful dog Jake. He was the most amazing Siberian husky and I loved him very much.

Jake beca...

Metal on metal action

On day 71 I wanted to do something that wasn't terribly physical. My tree chopping adventure on day 70 was exhausting. Today I needed to use more brain and less braun. 

What did I choose?


You might be surprised that a person who enjoys bl...

Day 70

One dead tree and a few sharp axes.

Today's adventure was not without a tiny bit of excitement. I've never chopped down a tree before and I'll be honest when I say I'd still be out there if I didn't have a bit of muscle helping me swing those axes.

Kama Sutra

Ha! Did I get your attention?

Day 69 did not include the Indian Hindu book of love but it did involve twisting, spinning and winding around and around. Today I turned a big pile of wool and fur into yarn.

We visited a local dealership and walked th...

I survived black Friday shopping by spending time with my kids again.

They are masters of so many things and I can't imagine where they got that from.

Today I got to add some pretty cool features to my miniature killing machines. In my head I was just finishing up an exp...

Thanksgiving 2017 and it's the 65th day of this adventure. Our family of four is back in the same house and I've got a sense of gratitude, also I hear the sounds of grown men behaving like children and it's music to my ears. 

My youngest man-child is home from trav...

Mini painting

I've waited quite a few years to paint miniature wargame figures. My kids have gamed for a while now and it's fair to say that I've avoided this on purpose.

Why? I just don't enjoy miniature war gaming. 

What I do enjoy is spending time with my kids and...

Today, for the first time in the history of me, I cut and set my own bullnose tile. 

I've been looking forward to this for so very long. I know at 49 I should have had this experience by now but I've been super busy and needed an actual project to tile. 

For the...
