Here’s another quick update of what’s been happening here in the North! Enjoy the pictures, as they seem to tell the story of what is happening around here best:)
Snow shoe making has been fun:
Shaping my first set, and then hanging to dry for 1 week.
After the shoes are shaped and dried I took them apart and shaved the bark off.
In the workshop.
All of the fine filling(tanned deer hide cut in thin strips) pulled between the poles to stretch and dry.
Enjoying our first major snow!
Slushes in the snow!
Mudding the joints in the new Catechism room in the church basement.
The room, from one end.
Ready for primer.
Sledding on the little hill in front of the church.
Celebrating Denise’s Birthday
Our big thaw, and freeze!
One day of rain and warm weather and all the snow is gone:(
Celebrating the Feast of Christ the King with a procession, only over to the house because of all the ice.
The beautiful sunrise, as seen from our yard
The cold weather is made bearable by these moments of beauty.
Making Soap is one of our hobbies, albeit one that we haven’t got around to doing very often. We experimented this time with some new recipes. This is our Green Tea Lemongrass soap.
We have been toying with label ideas as well, just to make it look official:)
Definitely happy with our experimental results!
And another batch!
