You had fun though right?

I've been getting in calligraphy.

I need something to slow me down and improve my handwriting. So far, frustrating, but I'm learning.

I'm currently restoring a Winchester shotgun. Evenings are spent cleaning and polishing the bolt and each piece of the fire control group. The stock and forend are getting their third coat of Tru-Oil today, and will probably have eight coats by the time the barrel arrives. I'll have about $215 into a $400 shotgun, then into the safe it goes.

I've been gardening since 8 years old. Natural science has always intregued me and horticulture can be done at home. Spring is busy with lots of physical activity working the gardens. Cycling has to take the back seat. Only 4.5 miles on an errand today.

I finished taking out two trees in my back yard today, and my neighbor dug one out while we were at the store. I now have a mostly flat yard, and about double the garden space I used to have. Also moved about a ton of brick and stone, and built my fire pit. And to think they're jealous that I took a whole week off work.

We have a fire pit but it has ended up more utilitarian than for pleasure. I love the fall out back by the fire pit.

I had all this stone that was ringing the trees, and didn't know what else to do with it. We have a small, portable fire pit in the front yard, for s'mores with our neighbors, but this is out back, so we can enjoy adult beverages in peace.
