My neighbour, Bud, is happy to buy some of Anne’s apple juice at the first Codrington Farmers’ Market of the season.

I went to a knitting circle after work today and took this photo after leaving; it was a super spring evening and I enjoyed my short bike ride after this.

G is pretty happy to have the sawmill working and he demonstrated board cutting with a basswood that he found lying in the field.

Pouring Sap

We’re still collecting sap from our two big maples and T is skilled at pouring it without putting down the bucket (not something that I attempt!).

Inside Maple

We were on a walk to our neighbours when we came across a hollow sugar maple (still alive). Those of us who could fit took turns inside of it.

Tapping Trees

It was a bright sunny day so we decided to tap our trees. This year we are trying to take it easy so we only put two taps in two large maples. We probably won’t get much syrup but are okay with that.

Fixing a Shade

leave a comment »

Years ago, a vibrating speaker fell on top of one of our lamps, damaging the paper shade (but not the fixture). I tried to find a new shade but there wasn’t one that was the right shape and I was determined not to just throw away the lamp. I used to make things with papier maché and thought that I should be able to fix the shade with flour and water and tissue paper.
For years, the shade hung around my living room as a reminder of something to be done. I looked at the shade a few months ago and decided that I need a balloon to hold it while I tried to fix it but found I had to go buy balloons first.
It was another grey day out today and I finally mixed up some flour and water and pulled out the tissue paper to fix the shade. At first it went dismally and I was really frustrated.
I found that using a ruler to rip the tissue paper worked better than attempting to free hand it (which I would have done with newsprint). Then I used a paint brush to apply the glue to one side of the tissue (while the square was on the table). I then stuck the paper to the shade gently, and then painted over the other side of the tissue with the glue and paintbrush to make sure that it would adhere. Some more photos of the process are on instagram.
It wasn’t possible to get the shade to dry evenly so now it bulges in funny places but it does work and doesn’t have a rip in it anymore. The shade will no longer squish flat (as it came packaged) but I’m still calling this a win.
