This guy was a pleasant site.
He ate 10 pieces of my fruit.
This guy was truly a wonder
Looks like a hybrid between a bee and a fly. Also saw another spider like the yellow except it was white, but couldnt get a shot. Could they be chameleonic?
Caught this yellow arachnid tethered to a wild rose stem as the flower-bud prepares for bloom
Anither interesting specimen…
Caught this little incognito greeny dangling from a branch…..zoom in and check out his stokemetrr!!!! Its otc.
Back at the cabin and it looks like the beaver is setting up shop out front, and a ticked out moose ran into the alleyway and looked at me all ghostlike looking like a pale horse. Got the rats done and worked my bear with ashes to soak up some of the fat. Loons tookContinue reading “Wild life”
Made it out to the line and it is a wonderful feeling. Saw so many new ducks closeup and aboutb24 rats, but i only shotb8. One had a huge cist and it blew up all over me when i was skinnin it. Chilly night in the cabin but it survivee the winter …probly check myContinue reading “Rattn”
This is some more decorative work…
After work today I raked the grass and made this lighthouse lawn ornament. The frost is out in places that have been uncovered for more than a week, but anything with snow cover is still hard 6 inches in.
Last night I made this beauty of a ring….not as useful as my Frontier blade, but I sling it on my heavy chain around my neck and it provides a nice jingle! There is light at the end of the tunnel….not sure how I am going to make my interest payment at the end ofContinue reading “Most recent project”
All the seeds are in the ground for the most part, but I just realized that I may not be here to reap the harvests of all my hard work since I just had an interview to teach English in the Middle East and will possibly be moving there in 2 months once my VisaContinue reading “Day 50”
As the spring melt comes on, the water has creeped into the area where I chopped wood all winter making the dyes from the willow blend to create this colorful walkway.
Got the potatoes in the ground last night and just waiting for the snow to melt so I dont have to walk in and out each time I want to go somewhere. Drinkin some water made from cutting a drinking jugs bottom off and flipping it upside down and jamming a brita water filter inContinue reading “Pressure? What Pressure?”
The garden clearing is by far the most laborious as you have to clear the snow, wait for the ground to thaw, rip the topgrowth and rocks and roots out, then break the soil so things can grow. Luckily, my cold storage house is in need of more coverage since the moose hides I wasContinue reading “Cold storage halfling house and garden clearing continued….”
Blademaking is one of my specialty crafts….This one was made with tempered steel from an old chainsaw bar.
Do you thing seasons and stars have spirits? Why did many of the ancient civilizations believe these deities to have life-like qualities? Are we being too naieve in our present day and age due to a dumbed-down cultural and social mentality to even consider these questions? How does this relate to the stack of dishesContinue reading “A re-awakening or just plain crap?”
Realizzing I am shortstocked on garden space, I am using some foresight to get this area clear of snow so I can start breaking new ground.
After putting miles and miles in the deep snow, and finding a couple spent carcasses, it was my turn to harvest….and it was bountiful! Totalling 7 Snowshoe Hares, it topped my previous best by 4. This was also after letting a few go in the morning cuz I wasnt planning on hunting, but if IContinue reading “Best rabbit count yet”
Even the predators get the good Lord’s blessing as illustrated by the savagery that comes from a struggle to survive the harsh northern winters. This piece offers a juxtaposed chill to the seemingly endless beauty the landscape otherwise exudes.
Sitting and working on the crossword when, lo and behold, my globe was illuminating the room!
An eerie ray of sunshine litup my room when it reflected back off my globe while I was working on the crossword.
Cleared the snow out of the way so the ground can get a headstart on the thaw. The igloo to the right is going to be my cold storage in the summer….lets see how long itll hold up…aby guesses???
Out here on the farm it is almost calving season and i have three sprouts coming up in my flower planter, but that doesnt stop the envy for warmer climes. The wknd was a ball of sunshine and full moon fast approaching so it has been well lit to say the least. My leads areContinue reading “Grabbn the bull by the horns”
A nice little jag of wood to keep the cabin warm!
What a bore. Here I am with all the gusto in my bellows like it was a Friday! Do you know why? Because tomorrow is Spring! Oh Spring, where you go and when you come back I never know, but soon K? My seedlings are in a tub and a recent sprout took a chargingContinue reading “Crish crash splish splash, Only Tuesday?”
Writing has always been elitist for many reasons…..scholars were often noble or assigned to document noble causes, and so developed a practice of communicating thoughts and ideas via an alternate mode. Today, after everything ive learned and discerned from academic literature for over a decade, i am still baffled by the question of why didContinue reading “The written quest”
After a solid session of hurdling im feelin pretty good. Still gonna take a couple weeks in the deep freeze until things warm up a nimrod more……kinda like a bear hibernating. More philosophical questions remain as i look at the newspaper still rolling cigarettes sitting by this fireplace doing math to see if things addContinue reading “Hurdle hopping”

What are we to make of this world we are in with all its splendid beauty and misfortune? What grand design lends its eloquence to the heartbeat of imperfection? Gaiea, have our machines disrupted your natural cadence? What truths lie in desk drawers never to be revealed? Wither and thither if my home be notContinue reading “2013 so far so good so what?”

This week was a bust at work. The family day holiday in Canada put everyone off-kilter with the USA office teams and our strategy was comparable to the Sober Drunk analogy outlined the following video.

Most All-Nighter’s I’ve pulled in the past were more meaningful than tonight’s little escapade inthe YQR — a somewhat pleasant airport — and free internet — and pretty quiet so its not too bad. On the poo-side, I should be in a rental car driving to my destination to visit my client whom I haveContinue reading “All-Nighter Here We Come!”
