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.
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.
I love Saturdays for some reason. I guess its because it feels like it is the beginning of two days of freedom to do what ever we choose. Although this time of year we always end up doing some office work to get ahead of Monday.
Besides that we managed a few other things, like a much needed power wash of the skidsteer. We didn’t want to leave the mud on it and have that freeze in place.
It has been raining off and on since Sunday so no work on outdoor projects, but it is a good time to get caught up on our indoor projects.
We’ve been working on a few Nova Scotia maps this week. One is on order and since we were doing one we decided now would be a good time to do the second one for a Christmas present. That will make one name crossed off the old Christmas list.
We had a little fun this weekend creating new Maritime themed projects.
No big projects on the go these days, but lots going on in the workshop.
