This summer is going by way to fast for us, how about you all? 3 day weekends are always appreciated, which is what this 4th has done for us.  The company that Emery (Bud) works for gave them Friday off for the holiday, so did Mt. Ascutney Hospital. Some companies, I’m sure, chose Monday instead. Did you get a 3 day weekend?

Today (Sunday) started off quite nicely – sunshine and blue sky all around. Great for enjoying the pool and getting things done outside.

Let it Snow?

Let it Snow? How about “Make it Stop”? Coming into the end of February and headed for March, I’m personally ready for the snow to stop. It’s pretty and fun and white and all of that but bring on Spring!

Shoveling off roofs may need to happen today – again. The ice build up around the gutters isn’t safe and can’t be left alone. Unless the sun comes out…

Is that the sun?

Yeah – Sun!! Come on girl, you can do it, melt as much ice as you can!!

In the meantime, between the snow removal and all the other things, Bud has been gearing up for this seasons Craft Fairs and Artisan Events – More walnut has been purchased from Atlantic Plywood which will balance nicely with the maple wood we still have.  The contrasting designs still seem to be the hottest sellers.

I am still a fan of the natural wood grains and how they can vary so much, what are your thoughts?

Ok, back to the sun, which is melting the snow quite nicely at this point. Happy for this warmer day, I think we all needed it.  Cheers to the Daytona 500 and cheers to the Oscars tonight – enjoy!!
