Old habits die hard

The title is a reflection of what I consider the current state of the fishery to be. It doesn’t take much to see how devastating the blows have been on workers and harvesters alike with so many closures, but it is so much the way of life for people around here, it will not soon be  forgotten, nor should it be.

This album will be similar to what you have seen two posts ago, except it was a much prettier day today. The following photos are from ‘Fox Harbour Slip,’ the dry dock that everyone in town uses for their boats, big and small.

Easter rocks

A little project that Aaron and I completed last night. Again, using beach rocks. There’s so many things you could make by just reusing materials that you can find outdoors. They’re cute, they would make a nice gift, and they help you bond with the person you’re making them with.

Materials required:

Beach stones, rounded/egg shaped, best if white or light grey

Paint, crafter’s paint from the dollar store works best, and it’s cheap!

Paint brushes, pretty much any kind would do! but you can get some decent ones at the dollar store

Dead grass, hey, it’s what the best nests are made of!

Fake birds, (optional!), I got them from the dollar store, two on a card

Decorative bowl, any old bowl will do. I just got a cheap dollar store bowl with fancy patterns on the side

Imagination! that’s free! or you can probably find some inspiration from Google Images by typing in “Easter Eggs”

A friend 🙂 everything’s better with company.

Have fun making something with your friends this Easter. The best gift is the gift of love & sharing.
