Pure Joy

Hubby and I spent most of last Saturday with 3 other couples.  We had the most splendid day.
Want to take a guess what we did?

Shopping, you say?  Ah, NOPE!

Snowshoeing? Umm...I wish! But nope, not that either.

Give up?

Okay, I'll tell you!

This....this is what we made!

Bird feeders!  We built bird feeders!
It really was great fun.  The guys cut the wood and the girls watched!

Okay, that's sort- of true!

They really did cut the wood.  It was like watching 4 little boys.  They couldn't get enough of the power tools and the nail gun! Even the girls got a chance to use the nail gun. We were surprised we got the chance! (Supervised, of course!)

What do you think of the sign?  Us girls just had to piece the letters together. Easy!

The weather outside may have been frightful, but we were cozy inside the shop! Amazing what you can do when you work together! Oh, there was food involved too.  Lots of it! We didn't starve! The birds won't now either!

Once the feeders were put together, it was the guys turn to sit. We were up---time to stain! We all picked red!

I'd say they turned out pretty well. The birds at our feeder are getting their fill.

We liked doing the project together so much, we all said, "Let's do it again!"

What about you...making any new projects lately?
