I planned to garden, read, embroider and crochet but then on the shelf as I walked by to enter the back yard was a old chocolate box containing my woodworking hand tools. I remembered the large stick with a crook in it that I brought home from my evening walk yesterday. I grabbed the stick, surveyed its knots and curves and started to whittle. Before I realized what was happening I had whittled a good deal of the afternoon away. It was so relaxing and I forgot how much I enjoyed working with wood.
I now have a well shaped walking stick, shepherd's staff or the largest crochet hook on the planet. All I need are some goats or sheep :)
Now I am off to work with a busy day ahead of me. Good news though we are expecting rain later today.
