Fall is upon us and of course that makes it an iffy thing to plan outdoor work around here.
Like this week when we were planning to rent a tractor and get some serious diggin' done, then witnessed a two day long deluge of rain. Happy news for the firefighters around the state, but sad news for our plans. In the meanwhile I am going around winterizing and repairing what I can.
I have a few old books that I have picked up at estate sales and thrift stores that I enjoy for the sheer wonderfulness of their contents of lost knowledge and also, as an artist, for the endearing illustrations.
|It's always nice when you can have the Alien next door model for your drawing.|
Where does one turn in these moments of despair? No, Not to Google, come on, there are other ways of finding these things out!
It is the ancient art, nearly lost in time, of looking it up in a book. Silly.
Or how to build a Fire Proof Floor.
I am of course looking better than I ever have in my perky hairdo and my Betty Crocker apron.
