13 years after I saw the post on Not Martha about how to make marble magnets, I made a marble magnet!

Not bad for my first one, I suppose – though I need clearer marbles, and I also need to get better about spreading the glue (or using more, since it didn’t spread all the way to the edge.)

Maybe in another 13 years I’ll try again.


Random back yard pictures from back when it was sunny and warm and not cold and dreary. WOE.

Frankie and Khal, studiously not looking at me.

Archie looks like he’s ready to start something.

Frankie, Jake and Khal.

Jake is loonified, Newt is waiting for him to move, and Khal is just keeping an eye on things.

I think I’m ready for spring.

  1. Love your pics this morning. You said you did not like Shady Cove. Looking at these I think you should pick something with Terrace in it, like Terrace Hill, Stone Terrace Trace etc., were you to change the name of your home. Or – wait for it – Robyns Nest taadaaa Have a good week.

  2. Aw, hi Walter! I know you’ll find your home soon, handsome boy!

    Love Newt’s attempt at teaching yoga in the last photo. Doesn’t look like the other guys are feeling particularly zen about it though.

  3. I think your marble magnet is great for a first try! It would probably take me 50 tries to get something that looked that good.
