So I worked on the cupboard door this evening and finished up the berries. As I look it over, I see there are still some spots that need a little work. and I should sand down the entire background to remove the tool marks that nicked certain areas. After than I'll stain it up and I have not decided if It will need to be painted.
I'll carve up the seats tomorrow. Hopefully we will sell some more and I can do one entire batch. We sold another one tonight and someone ended a couple but has not paid for them. This will, of coarse, make Sunday my busy day. I'm not fond of pushing everything till Sunday, But it frees up a Saturday from time to time.
This week, even though I did not blog about it, I was able to put up my last three bat houses. I'm thrilled! And with a Little luck, they will be full this coming spring with little flying bug eaters. You see, we have a rather annoying mosquito problem here in the swampy spring time. They are unbearable! And a bat will eat 1000 of these little bloodsuckers an hour. That sounds good to me. so with no harsh one time chemicals, we can kill the bad bugs and have a fat and happy population of bats. It's too bad they get a bad rep. They are actually quite cute. And I have had the great fortune of actually having one as a pet for a few months in Minnesota. He ate all the ice fishing buddies bait and flew around my dorm room till the spring was in full thaw. I have already had a small population check out my first house. It had been there almost 4 years. I'm hoping the new ones are build to better specs and will attract them sooner, or better yet....permanent residents!
