I know some of you have seen these etchings before, done with a wood burner. I'm showing them again in an attempt to ease my own desire to be at the cabin.
I did these free-hand, many years ago, rather quickly, before the generator quit. There wasn't much gas left in it and I wanted to do something to these crude window frames, so it was a ' full-speed- ahead-project. Each window took no more than 10-15 minutes.
I think the moose is one of my favorites with his knobby knees wrapped around the framework's edge. There is a buck, a bear,
a moose, chipmunk, and
my favorite friendly perching bird, the Black-Capped Chickadee.
Tho, I've been longing to spend some time at the cabin, now is not the time. Soon, I keep saying, but now, I will wait until the hunters have thoroughly cleaned and gone. If I go now, I would be tempted to clean up after the guys. I will wait.
Maybe then, I can stay before the snow flies. I have no interest in strapping on the snowshoes just yet. I will have to wait a long time before another hike in the woods. Until then,
patience. Not something I'm good at lately, but I will practice.
Have a grateful Thanksgiving Week with your families.
