I took a video using a GoPro Hero3+Black this morning, plenty of fog on the lake, looks like its going to be a humid day. Also captured the hummingbirds with the feeding pretty much empty from overnight. This video is best watched in Full Screen mode.
(Updated Aug 04 2015) A wood map of PEI is next on my project list. Yesterday I chose the boards to make the island map about 32 inches long. Lots of twists and turns in the outline, so it should be interesting to cut. If its anything like cutting out the Nova Scotia wood map, I’ll be sure to cut a few spiral blades.
This year we’ve taken to refilling the feeder once a day, first thing in the morning. A 3 cup fill typically lasts all day and is bone dry by sunset. When the feeder is dry for a while we observe the hummingbirds are little more co-operative once its refilled.
Gina had asked for a map of Nova Scotia cut out from boards and she wanted to make it from pallet boards. Easy? Well, yes and no. Yes, I have plenty of pallet boards in a stack out behind the workshop. No, I have never cut out a map of Nova Scotia before, or any other province for that matter. One way to know for sure is to try it and see what happens. Once she was done with the dry brushing technique, it was my turn.
A couple times a year there seems to be a couple different helicopters that buzz up and down the lake. So it was a surprise to the SAR helicopter here today. It buzzed over a couple times before finally taking off. For a few seconds there I thought it was in trouble.
We did half of this slow cooker recipe with 2 chicken breasts, only change was to use just one clove garlic. Slow cooked on low for 4 hrs. It sat in the unplugged cooker for about 20 min by the time we got the other dishes together. A little dry for my liking, no fault of the recipe as it could of cooked for less time. The missus liked it and that’s all that matters. (click the image for a larger picture)
