I was in Colorado this weekend, on a mission.
My daughter, Allison, is getting married in June and she wanted me to cut 150 little tiny slices of trees from her grandpa's land to use as place holders.
Here's a box of the almost finished product. We still have to make little slots in the tops for the cards. I'm not sure the easiest way to do it, so if you have any suggestions, please comment below!
I went to Home Depot to rent a saw for this and had no idea what kind would work best. The guy there told me a miter saw would do it and he was right! It was easy and even fun to do! And seriously, doesn't fresh-cut wood smell the best?
But before I could slice the wood into little pieces, I had to go out and find some skinny young trees to cut down with a hand-saw. It was dark on Friday night and snowing and I found a little grove of trees that was perfect. As I was cutting them down, this guy was watching me. I went over to him and he ran away, but he kept coming back to watch.
Between the snow, fog, dark, quiet, what the project was all about and the horse, it was a very surreal, almost spiritual experience.
You might have heard me talking about my attempt last weekend to make pancakes for Carson and his buddy. They turned out awful. I've made pancakes a million times so I don't know why!
Weather Girl Jenny's mom heard the story and sent me her recipe for buttermilk pancakes. I made them Saturday morning and they were awesome! Thanks Jenny's mom!
And finally, birdfeeders.
Falen and Steve make fun of me for having birdfeeders, and rightfully so. But it's so interesting and relaxing to watch, kind of like having an aquarium. I picked these up at Walmart and of course, the first visitor was a fat squirrel who figured out how to climb it.
I hope you had a great weekend and got to soak up some sunshine!
Have a good week and thanks for looking at my blog!
