Listening to the sick jams that my brother recently highlighted on his Monthly Arts Scene Television Show.
Not only is my brother absolutely adorable (watching him dance at the end is almost the best part) but he has excellent taste in music.
Learning all about processing meat. Maple and myself – with a bunch of awesome help from Mina (of Bunchberry Farms bloggins), her Darlin’ Man, and her father – skinned, quartered and butchered the caribou I shot Sunday morning on Sunday evening. All that was left to do on Monday was grind and package all the meat. Luckily Maple, along with two other friends, bought a super-nice grinder from Cabela’s several years ago. This wonderful (and heavy) machine cut many, many hours out of the grinding process.
Loving incredibly generous, spontaneous and unexpected gifts. The partner of a good friend of Maple’s (the same lovely artist who made my anniversary bracelet) gave us a blanket with great sentimental value. The blanket is made from flour sacks from the 1930’s and is all hand-stitched. This blanket is such a beautiful, precious gift with a long and varied history (it even survived a house fire) and I am incredibly proud to display it on my bed.
Cheers and Love,
Maple and Me
