My latest knitting project. I saw the pattern online & bought the yarn for it, then was too intimidated to start for months. Might be the biggest thing I’ve made - over 700g of yarn in the finished skirt. Good thing I live in a cold place.

Was about to mount ski box topper and was reminded of hole suffered last season

I'll see if it lasts. Need to put a second application of epoxy but hoping it holds.

90 sq mts of exposed aggregate concrete driveway ripped out, reshaped and relaid.
Along with some new stormwater drains being replaced.
I now realise one of the main reasons why I retired out of the building trade a few years ago !!
Geeez It was hard on the body.
Anyhow. Now I’ve done it I can go to Canada on Sunday for a few weeks for a rest ??!!

good job, can you come to my place and give me a hand with a pin oak and invasive Norwegian maple? Pin Oak must fall between neighbors shed and my house with precision so as not to hit either which is why I won't do it, or climber has to take it down to the top crown so it can drop short of the shed. Maple only needs 1/2 of a large limb removed so the tree will not be a threat to the house if it falls in a storm but I'm not opposed to taking the entire tree down

A great day of flying radio-controlled model gliders at Peterson Butte (Lebanon Oregon). Rain showers ended at 0800 and winds were 12MPH from the SSW -- a perfect day.

I flew these 4 gliders. The eagle glider actually had a few flights right next to a real eagle.

One of the guys had a 3D printed plastic glider. It was a bit heavy.

Just huck that glider right off of the cliff into the wind, it will go up.

I can't believe how many glider pilots can take off on a Tuesday. There were 6 of us (I'm not in photo -- photographer). And there were 5 paraglider pilots and one hang glider. Doesn't anybody have a job?
