I have absolutely nothing (to quote Vicki here,) blog- worthy to report today. It's been a busy few weeks so I haven't had much freetime. I've got a few cool things in the works (and still need to post Brina's artshow pictures, )but not much progress this week on my stuff -- so I'll wait until the end of the weekend to post pictures where you can see some interesting progress.
Brina is getting ready to go on a ski trip with her class so I think we are going to head over to the Outer Banks this weekend in the Jeep (which can drive on the sand) for a night -- we'll find a nice secluded spot (which is the entire beach at this time of year!) pitch a tent, start a bonfire, do some serious star gazing whilest listening to the roar of the winter ocean (one of my favorite activities!) It's supposed to be windy and cold, but I don't care. We've got all the gear so that won't be a problem. I do love the ocean in the winter.
Did you know that wild Spanish Mustangs roam the Outer Banks? We see them every other time we head out there -- it truly is a breathtaking sight to see these wild horses that I have read - were imported by the Spaniards, some having swam to shore off Spanish ships that sank off the Atlantic Coastline. Their bloodlines have been studied and DNA examined and while not with 100% certainty, the conclusion is that the virtually unadulterated DNA of these horses can be linked back to the Spanish livestock of the 16th Century. Amazing.
What are YOU working on or doing this weekend? Whatever it is, push the limits - and have fun!
