jambaloney here.. miss me? ;-)
i know most of you have been suffering this winter - in truth we haven't had it THAT bad as, being canadian, we are accustomed to severe/cold weather, still, we are getting sick of this (pretty tho' it may be)
so what to do? how about attending an ice fishing derby yesterday - a window of nice weather sandwiched between storms...
after a couple of hours a beer is in order ;-)
kymber and our friend c came for a visit - it wasn't as exciting as they might have thought ;-) here they are, hiding in front of our friend d's ice fishing tent.
here i am using the 5-hook rig that our friend wildflower sent us - i only caught 4 smelt as the sun went down, but there was only other guy who caught any fish - the rest got SKUNKED! i learned a LOT of valuable info and had a great time - next up - DOZENS OF SMELT FOR KYMBER!!!!!!
back at the ranch this afternoon, wind is a brewing... we had rain this AM and a massive rainstorm friday - most of the snow has melted again and you can see where work halted dec 6 - been iced in place since - i am NOT very proud of the chaos, but hey, blogging is all about sharing, right?? (greenhouse is mint though ;-)
yep, carnage - that is overturned furniture on the berm.
and 1/2 finished shelves behind vandura
honestly, i pack better than this but i thought i had all of dec to tidy the yard before spring...
lost the bbq cover friday, no clue how far in the woods it went..
my lumber yard cover is finally ripping apart..
some free stuff from the fire hall buried in snow..
more rubber hose - woot!
today was another episode of what i call "the curse of the plastic porch repair". after a couple of years, the sun has taken is toll and the plastic gets brittle and the wind does it's thing and rips it, i have been patching piecemeal - this spring a full replacement... EVERY time i go out to fix it, the wind picks up and it starts raining - today was no exception... the instant i walked out with plastic wind went form 20 to 60 km/hr and it started snowing...
today's addition - uuuuuugleee isn't it?
hey a bonus form lobsterrus - they we ditching some old pvc - free for the taking - it will make nice hoop-house support!!!
wind is gusting to 80 now... brrrr!
every one is different!
pictures of leaves..
and art deco fractal patterns!
these look like ferns!!
the whole interior was a temporary art gallery
i leave you with a tease of the ongoing work - nasty stuff... back to the crawlspace!!!
cheers all !!!!
btw - kymber has fired up the good eats again, here is her latest and MAN was it divine - i am a lucky man ;-))))
