Wind: 1, heat pump shelter: 0.
Remember way back when we built a shelter to protect our heat pump? No? Well me neither. Had to look it up, surprised it was only in the fall of 2015. Seems like it has been there for longer.
One of our spring jobs is crossed of the old to-do list, in winter no less. We were asked by my Aunt across the lake to take down five pine trees in the spring. They stood about 40 feet tall and were located quite close to her house. After the last wind storm, lots of branches broke off making a mess on her lawn. Most living branches were about 20 or more feet up. The rest were gone. This is what we started with.
A typical winter here at our end of Nova Scotia consists of cold temperatures, enough to freeze the ground, then rain, then a dusting of snow, and back to cold temps. Every once in a while a storm gets thrown in the mix. That’s about where we stand now. The ground is frozen and then it rained.
Well hello there. Long time no see. Hope you had a great Christmas. Ours was low-key. As of Christmas eve we still had no snow and the lake was mostly open.
Starting to sound like a broken record here, but more maps headed out the door this week. All of these are the colour choices of the customers.
Hope you had a good weekend. We had just the right amount of busyness (is that even a word) and down time. We finally got our tree up and decorated. You might think that living on land that used to be a Christmas tree farm, we would have a real tree, but you would be wrong. While the trees were trimmed at one time, they haven’t been touched in several (maybe 15-20) years. They are way too big to come indoors. Sooo… artificial it is. This is one we have had for about 20 years and it will soon be time for a new one.
Happy Friday. Weather here is still holding on the warmer-than usual side. No snow yet, knock on wood. I’m sure it’s not too far off now. Plenty of rain though. I’ll take it.
We decided to try burning some of the brush from when we cleared more space behind our work yard. Everything was wet, which was a good and bad thing. Good so we wouldn’t accidentally start a forest fire, bad because well…fire and water.
This was a fun project. We have the original deed to our land from September 8th, 1952. We were looking for something else one day and came across it. We decided it should really be framed in order to better preserve it.
It was a busy weekend, what with Christmas creeping closer. It seems like there is lots of time and then all of a sudden there are only two weeks left. We clued up all the orders to get them in the mail for today. That included finishing the Nova Scotia crib board.
Between life and work we are fitting in Christmas orders. Crib boards have been popular this year, for good reason, they’re awesome.
