You know I often say that I really want to make or try something and sometimes I get to try it right off and at other times it may be years before I actually get to do it, but it is always in the back of my mind. I can show you a web page I printed up six years ago on how to weave a straw broom, I haven't gotten a chance to try it yet but it is a project that is still waiting for that 'someday'. Today was a 'someday' it was spoon day. Phil had gotten me some wood craving knives for Christmas because I had told him that I really did want to try making a spoon. Then yesterday he brought me home a couple pieces of wood. One looked like a spoon to me.
Michelle had been coming in with her comments about how rough it looks. I asked her how many people she knew who could make a wooden spoon. She decided it looked pretty good. Let's see, her accomplishments today were to play her new video game. Mine were 8 quarts of potatoes canned, 5 1/2 pints of apple jelly (ok, it is probably syrup but I tried ), a new wooden spoon, and several different herb seeds planted (on the windowsill ) besides the usual chores.
