The Tree Hunt - after going to one tree farm where they cone-cut every tree, no matter what species it was, we went to a farm that only grew Fraser Fir- and did not shape them.
The tree farm had a collection of many old bird nests that had been found in their trees.
Back in Quincy, everyone had put up lights. It is a well lit city during the holidays. These decorations are a vintage example from a house in the neigborhood...only a few of the many.
The tree went right up and just barely fit!
The lights are flicker free LEDs.

Tim has begun building a boat. It's a kit boat and is shipped in various puzzle pieces that get glued together (with a very strong epoxy). One day it will be a Northeaster Dory like the one we tried out at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival:
and here she is in parts....
Our garage is a wee bit small for a car- it was built in 1900 along with the house. We are planning to dig up part of the driveway anyway, so the garage is really a storage shed and a bike garage. It's a sweet little building with many windows. We cleaned it up to make it a little more usable a couple of weekends ago.
