I can't believe it's already the Summer! Time has really been flying by.. Like we only have a few more months to get our fire wood for the next winter.
In fact, thats a lot of what our weekends are spent on.
This weekend we dug the foundation for our new shed, built a saw-horse and chopped our wood for next winter. We have a lot of dead wood that we need to get chopped up.
It's been a bit of a rough go on the Ruby situation.. Turns out the rebuild process of a vintage trailer takes some extra tools and parts that aren't too easily available, or are just plain expensive.
We have a few things to work with, but will need metal for C-channels, metal cutters, a rivet gun..
But I think I've got a genius idea to use some of the C-channel that came with the shed in the trailer.. and just build the shed out of wood! We were given a really old shed from the landlords. It's missing some key pieces... But I think I can replace a lot of them with wood, and use the left over metal for the Trailer.
It's been nice just having the trailer here though. Once the truck is up and running again I hope we can pick up some metal.
Until then I've just been enjoying the beautiful summer sun with the pups. We've been taking the truck up the mountains for fire wood. Now that we have a chainsaw we are able to cut out own wood. (With a permit of course.)
It really has been so beautiful out here. I've been bringing a lot of my art work outside. I've got a really nice traveling art set up that I want to show you.
Even though I haven't felt "in the studio" much... I have been creating. I've just added 4 new prints to the art shop!
I've been having a lot of fun with my watercolor pencils and crayons.
It feels really good to color and scribble in crayon and then go and paint the details in with water.
I'm off to sit on the back porch and watch the sunset while playing with my new favorite paints!
