Busy around the house, now the construction is “done”, doing some garden, yard, landscape, and kura/naya jobs… the glorious mundanity of the tiny things which make all the difference. Be prepared, nothing *shocking* or exciting, just the usual days.
Hemp cloth wrapped on shelves made from wedding dais / under the dust cover is 1982ish Yamaha GT-2000 turntable & analog amp plus TEAC cassette/CD/usb/1/4” deck. Thats not *all the records* but a solid batch.
Another string of lights *and* Palau static montage… legit handcrafted speargun etc etc
Wood splitter, borrowed from forester Ukan and parents split up this rack / its loud & ornery but does the job
All hardwood – mostly oak and maple, odd bits of others (arborist wife often bringing home big chunks) This was all F&M-in-law. Epic. I’ll fire it up though (i just encourage)
Breaking rocks in the hot sun… (Ryoko has made a time-lapse of this rather intensive, long project…)
Ume Chronicles continue (catching up from April 16, 2021)
Last year June, we harvested a load of Ume (Japanese small sour plums of a sort) from the neighbour’s tree and made several items while coincidentally waiting for our little baby to arrive (as you can see from my *sophisticated labeling system*, was started June 16) Oh and the baby arrived a few days later on June 23rd).
