Hi hi,

After a good nights sleep, I woke with a smile.
Breakfast and out with the trash, while going there I looked at the top paper and it was the shipping paper from the bookseller, I noticed something I did not see before the book was billed to a person in Sacramento, the name I did not know so I checked on Google and look what came up…

I laughed big time… But perhaps… We never know a wood working dog!
Naaaaaaa, I think it must be a cover for a elf, this elf is smart I see.

So now I will just go through the 30.550 members on LJ to see if I can find some one in Sacramento, see you in a month…

I start to wonder if elfs do whittle…

Dan, I love my little garden, it is really small 10×20 feet, but even so I managed to make it a little part of paradise as I usually say. When I moved in four years ago it was just some gravel and a few spots of grass, now I feel like sitting in a little clearing in the woods, yes I do love my little green spot, I feel blessed here.
I enjoy the circle LJ makes, to make a sketch, make a project, document it, share it and perhaps even inspire, and then at the end get all the feed back, and yes all the wonderful words and kindness, this is worth so much to me and makes me feel rich in live – what more can we ask for. (Except some old tools to restore – laugh).

TechRedneck, so here was the answer, the inspiration, it is so rewarding. I’m glad you got the bug it is a wonderful bug, yes he do eat his way into our budget, and yes he do keep us awake once in a while, but to be able to shell the fresh wood, see the shavings of a well tuned hand plane and even create as we go, that sure is a gift.

Fabrice, now I follow, thank you, I will set out some milk now. I was just at a wonderful museeum the other day, and finally I got my self a fire steel, so I have been in the forrest to find a tinder and so on, soon I will have reaced the step of evolution where I make fire… So I guess the saucepan with milk fits right into my middle age life here.

Ian, a big smile from me to you.

By the way and in balance with the middleage theme, the bench is my fresh made shaving horse without the top, I will post this soon.

Best thoughts to all of you, and especially my elf,
