Welcome to the Sunday Sunshine Blog Hop!

🐸 🌼 ☔️ 

Spring Peepers, daffodils, rainstorms, mud, and some warm days mean that Spring is really thinking about visiting us!  We’ve had a ton of rain, so I’d be happy for that to pass right on by.

Our work many days has been figuring out how to best plane the wood for our walls, then routing the edges for shiplap.  Andrew has been doing the planing, but I tried it on Friday.  The concept is simple, but the execution was not good for me.  My boards didn’t come out looking so pretty and uniform.  I’m sure I need more practice, but space in the shop area is limited, and I found it really hard to keep the boards level as they exited the planer, so they got some grooves on the ends.  Since I’m not into wasting good lumber, I’m going to have to leave that job  with Andrew and stick to other pursuits.

Adam got the walls covered in the pantry and that looks great!  Now he’s figuring out the best way to build wall to wall shelving, and to make it sturdy.  He will figure it out.  Pinterest gives plenty of ideas, but so many don’t look like they’d withstand a bunch of full canning jars, so we have to keep that in mind.  

It’s snail’s progress sometimes, but inch by inch does get the job done!  

I’m wondering what indications you have in your area that Spring is coming?  Little peepers?  🐸 Bright new daffodils or crocuses?  Or are you like some areas of the land and still buried under snow?  

Now or later, Spring will come!  Hold on!  Bright days are on the way! Crocus and daffodil
