What a busy day!
So much has happened that I should have blogged twice or even three times today! First: In case you missed it, last night was a meteor shower. And I saw the most amazing falling start ever! Picture if you will a flaming piece of white phosphorus falling from the sky! The leaves are all down so our backyard was a perfect place to see them. Second: I got to go to the mecca of woodworking....Woodcraft! I was so befuddled that I could not even answer the simplest of questions the associates asked me. Take a look at the chisel selection! When it was all said and done, I went slightly over my budget. I bought some rifters, a sanding belt, and a short bend chisel. Then it was home to the tree carving. I made some progress tonight on the face. And the cat, making it look a little more like a cat and less like a bear. The face still needs some work, and I'm trying to make her smile without looking creepy. But...it's late now and dark and cold, so I'm calling it for the night. the meteor shower should still be going on tonight. I saw most of them facing east. But that may be different in your area. If you do...be sure to make a wish!
