January 6, 2020

Our current weather can be explained in just one word…mud. The temperatures have been mostly warm (40’s F), but very unseasonable. We get frequent rain showers instead of our usual winter snows. Some folks are happily saying, ” at least we don’t have to shovel rain.” As for me, I am ready for colder temps and frozen ground.

We work horses when we can doing odd jobs and monkey business. It helps make the doldrums of the dreary days pass. On other days, I have been working in the forge shop. I get enjoyment in creating things. I am working on a set of shelf brackets in the photo.

I have a few other projects ready to go. The steel has been cut to length and my crude drawings litter my workbench. I enjoy this hobby very much. It is nice to have a place to work on these winter days. After all, who doesn’t like sitting around a fire?
