Expanded my vegetable garden:
|Kid's sandbox so they can play nearby while I tend the garden.|
|The two expansions for this year.|
|Shep watering his beans after soccer practice.|
Built a deck:
|Bradleyboy scraping things level.|
|Raking 10 yards of limestone makes for sore stomach muscles.|
|Limestone levelled (Duster in the background).|
|Day one of the build (Yes, Shep has pants on in the window).|
|Day two of the build (stairs are a real pain in the ass to make).|
|Two monkeys enjoying the barn-beam step to the kitchen.|
|Day three of the build.|
|Live edge railing/drink bar.|
|Kind of done. Table I fixed with old barn wood.|
|Another live-edged railing.|
|The smoker we bought. Yum.|
Buried my dog that died:
|Sweet Lucy's last day lounging in the sun.|
|Lucy's special spot in our garden.|
Went to a music festival with my family:
|Stage design by my wife Rachel. BoneDevil live.|
Shep rocking to The Charming Ruins.
Shep punching himself in the head. So punk.
Made a crazy Subaru commercial:
Please share this video with everyone you know.
It’s all about the number of Youtube views these days!
So that’s what I’ve been up to. I see many of my birding friends, the older retired ones and the younger ones without twins are birding like mad. I’m insanely jealous. Jeremy and Mark have blown past my big year number easily. Josh is likely going to beat the Ontario record this year. I’m sure he is looking at that Magnificent Frigatebird that just showed up as I type this. Maybe next year I can get out birding more. If my plans (yes, secret plans) come to fruition, there’ll be much more birding next year.
I leave you with this message.
