Anna and I canned some jams made from fresh picked wineberries. She also whipped up some pickled onions. I cut a lot of firewood from downed trees and branches. We got a new chain saw and it works so much better than the tiny one I was using before. The right tool makes all the difference. Kind of like having a nice fresh rotary cutting blade. Kurt built me a new rack to hold the stacked logs after I filled up the two that we had.
We had been planning to visit Carowinds on the way home. You may have seen the broken roller coaster in the news. It was one of the kids favorites, Since it will be closed for a while, we all posed for a photo instead. Right there where are fingers are pointing is the temporary weld that is covering the big old crack in the support beam.
There were plenty of other roller coasters though. We let the kids enjoy the rides, age has made us less resilient than we used to be, so we spectated and took photos instead.
It is always nice to be home again. I said that I would go in to work a bit this week, but then it will be back into vacation and sewing mode again. I polished off a bunch of hexies in the car. No photo of those, but I will try to get them all up on the design wall soon to take stock. How are your reds coming along?
