are you sick of turtles yet?

Honestly, I’m on the second to last turtle – so surely I can finish it up this weekend. Cheer me on, would you please? Also please allow me to introduce my friend, Red. (He’s a bit shy so only a little corner of him is showing in my picture) This little Honda generator has allowed us to top up the batteries so that our lifestyle here doesn’t take us back to Pioneer days. I like using a washing machine instead of scrubbing our clothes on a rock down by the water. Lots of our neighbours up here take their laundry back to the mainland and are quite envious of our machine. It’s been hazy in the mornings here for the last week, so Red has topped up the batteries enough so that I could get the clothes out in time to dry before late afternoon. John has been helping a neighbour replace some older solar panels and in exchange this very nice man is letting us have the old panels. We (obviously the Royal We – I won’t be up on the roof…) will add these panels to what we already have to bolster our supply and hopefully won’t need to use the generator quite as much next year. Have a wonderful weekend, I hope you find time to relax and enjoy something that you love.

    That looks soooooo good! What are you going to do with your stack ‘o turtles when it’s completed?

    LOL- The Royal We comes in handy when talking about those laborious chores. I hope that “We” will get the shrubs trimmed this weekend. 😉

      Ha!! I’m not 100% sure yet about the finish – probably make it into a bell pull with some simple dowels and floss hanger. Nothing too complicated, or it will sit in my “to be finish finished” pile for years…..

    What do you mean you won’t be up on the roof?!

    The turtles are fantastic, but that view is simply stunning.

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, has never met Red.

    No! I love your turtles! You’re inspiring me to get mine out and start on them! I saw a post on Facebook from Ink Circles about bell pull hardware with turtles on it — too cute!

    Looks DIVINE!!! [Both the turtles and the view!] Lovely to get some cast-off solar panels, too, I imagine!

    Will we see you @ LCO on Tuesday night?

    I’ll have music for you – for Jane’s memorial recital on Sept. 20th… (2 pm. – it was going to be 3, but Jane’s granddaughter must be home to Guelph – and IN BED by 7 p.m.)
