I have always been of the opinion that the low slanted light of an October afternoon is the most spell-binding light on Earth, but look at the early morning light coming into my space from the East. This is going to sound awful but I must say that i’m glad I’m alone to enjoy this. In just a few moments, the airspace around me is going to be filled with inquires about today’s weather and the state of the dog’s food bowl and whatever else must be spoken out loud right this very minute. Gawd, I love that man but he sure likes to talk about nothing.
From our Department of Wintertime Productivity: I made biscotti and Sami made a pole for a birdfeeder. They both came out pretty good.
I don’t know what possessed me to make something chocolate. The recipe sounded good, I guess. When I look at the finished product, I get excited because it looks like little pumpernickel slices to me and when I pick it up and get a whiff of it, it’s a big let down.
Anyway, Squirrel Buster Plus bird feeder. Homemade pole fashioned from electrical conduit, Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti, Cranberry-Pistachio Biscotti.
Bonus photo! Just in case you were thinking that my life is all slanted light, home baked goods and organization, let me disabuse you of that notion right now. This is the corner of Sami’s desk in the American West Meets Craftsman Style with Pine Cones And A Big Clock room. I’m thinking of buying an old wooden box from rifle ammunition or horse shoe nails to cover this tangle up. A few ventilation holes drilled into the back, a small curved cutout for the wires on the sides and we should be good. And in theme.
