In other news, Bertie is back! Sporting a shiny new ROPS, she's ready for logging! Well, we're still waiting on the wood winch, and hopefully it will arrive before spring thaw. That is also exciting because not only will I be able to gather some of those amazing logs left behind by the logging company, but the wood winch company also offers an assortment of colours to match Bertie. So, my winch won't be the standard red and black of the company, but rather will be orange and black to match the Kubbie.
Thirdly, and not leastly (I made that word up), I got almost five yards of oilskin cotton duck from a local canvas guy for $9.00!!! This stuff normally runs at least $9 per yard, and that's a pre-shipping price! Ok, it's yellow, but who cares! That's a great colour for the woods - hunters shouldn't be shooting at a yellow thing moving through the trees! I'm going to modify my pattern and make a canvas anorak for the boy. I'll have tons left over (and Laur has refused yellow), so I'll make another one for myself! WOO! NINE DOLLARS!!!
Even the crows are feeling more forgiving these days - they've gone from being a little cranky that we were tramping about their territory, to realizing that we put delicious things in the compost. The other day Boy and I followed walking-crow tracks all over the front yard and back to the compost pile.
