Here are a few photos that I took at Evergreen Cemetery. It has been my happy place this autumn. I’ll go there on mornings for a long walk, catch some Pokemon, and snap some photos with my phone. Maybe I’m just noticing, but the foliage seemed particularly bright and beautiful this year. Enjoy.
Yesterday we visited Fort Williams park to check out the stormy seas delivered by Hurricane Hermine. The storm did not come directly to Maine, but it breezed by a few miles off the coastline. We were surprised to see how many brave ( or stupid ) people were getting close to the edge of the cliffs to enjoy the sea spray. Enjoy the photos and videos.
Today I finished a home-made medicine cabinet / picture frame for our bathroom. Teaching myself basic carpentry skills, and owning a home in general has made me appreciate all the work that goes into building and maintaining our dwellings and infrastructure. Thank you all for working so hard. Enjoy the photos!
The artwork is a print we purchased in Scotland on our honeymoon a few years back. It was lovingly created by Griddle Bone Gallery. We’ve named him Magnus.
This weekend I completed my first furniture design project. Instead of buying the tools for traditional wood joinery I opted to use pocket holes. It is less expensive, and requires less time and patience. I was able to build two nightstands in a week. I haven’t been this excited since I was gifted my first pack of Legos. Pocket hole joinery is like building stuff with wooden Legos that you design! Here’s what I learned.
