The Mill here (State Park)--is sorta dormant, good harvest has already been made, wimter-but I fully expect--etc. Guess it's time for a Documentary--Our last visit--the Ironworks,log cabins --done uo right, quilting, woodwork--fellow gave me a blueprint of a woodworkers bench,--the next a Psaltery---

Sorry Ski: Got busy yesterday and didnt get back on. Did you get any snow?

We got 2-3" powdery, kids enjoyed the sledding behind the tractor. I dont have any good hills anywhere close so pull them behind the John Deere.

Misty morning, about 40F--only supposed to go to 50's next week--tough weather--chuckle.
Daughter is rather pre-occupied with Sweets for Christmas this year--she got the Sweets from the 'Missus.Kolachi and others, coming up!
Elected for ham this year the Thansgiving Turkey was enough for now--it was a Tom and a bit tough.

Ajla, you have my curiosity up now, are you making the cards?--if so what a prize--nothing like hand made--means more than bought.

Speaking of making stuff--may seem off the wall but snowflakes can be preserved:and attached.

Glass microscope slides, Crazy glue, tweezers, all cold.

Have to work in the cold--let snowflakes settle on slide, a drop of crazy glue--put in refrig for 24hrs, the crazy glue makes an exact copy of the flake.

Adult supervision--don't want the little one's gluing their fingers together--

Todays Bit 'O Useless Knowledge--but interesting.:)

My dad always used to make his own, and I've kept the tradition going.
On Thursday I'm going to take that train...............

Oh, Boy! I just had a chill--thats at least a 3 ft drift--how does one get out? thru the window?--really like the pic the architecture, and color combinations--very pleasing.
When do you board the train?--While you are there maybe you can go play eine Alpfenhorn--Nicht Wahr--;):)

Take care Ajla, and have a very good trip--Prosite!

Didn't recognize gluewein so I looked it up--mulled wine!-

As I recall--metal mugs, with the ingrediants, a red hot metal rod thrust into the mix at serving.(medieval)

Ran across Glogg--once--most fortifying--and tasty.

Morning Ax still need to find some sumatra around here. Another cold one but no wind at least.

Ajla: I really enjoyed that picture. Looks like someone needs to crawl out the window and shovel.

Or as they do some places like North Dakota where they get ungodly amounts of snow every winter make at least one outside door open in. Have even seen a few second floor doors.

As long as the wind "Stays at it Lays"--I'm Good.

The Second Story Window---and in to the drifts--just yell--"Airborne"--one's Will and matters will be taken care of--By the Way, how is the John Deere frontloader?--Series Alaska Gold--all Family trying to get me to go up there,--chuckle--"It would be good for you"--Hmmm--Might take them up on that--;)

John Deere frontloader, dont know what I would do without it Ax. Good in summer for hauling arounf mulch, topsoil, rock, fencing supplies you name it. In winter handy for moving snow and firewood. Havent had enough to have to use it on snow this year but it has hauled a few loads of wood the last couple of weeks from the woods to the splitting pile.

Tractor tills the gardens every spring, cuts the back field and brush with bush-hog, grades the driveway, yanks out shrubs etc. All in all I get a lot of use out of it, want to get a grading blade for the rear three-point hitch would speed up grading and snow removal jobs considerably.
