always begins with a small step (even if it does take all day on a balmy 60-degree spring day):
Today, dh and I began work on a tree house for the kiddoes ... these two 2x8x12s are the start for a platform that will elevate the kids about 10' up ... with rope ladder, rope bridge to another platform (anchored by a nearby oak) and generally a place to hide-out/sleep-out. For now, the large beams are holding up a swing ... and they are loving it!
More to come as this particular project progresses here at Hilltop!
This is the one we made for St. Bernadette's feast (Friday, April 16th) ... mixed berries and slivered almonds, since I had to use almond extract as I ran out of vanilla extract (who runs out of vanilla extract!!!!!)
I spend whatever free-time I have (I homeschool my three youngest) designing hand-knits, free-lance writing and keeping up with blogs and other online activities....all in order to stay out of trouble!
