We had a nice time up at the cabin ... the weather was nice ~ one day.
It rained and rained, then it rained some more.
Last night it quit raining.
Then it snowed.
Our cabin: not the cutest or neatest place on earth ~ but it's the hunting shack and it sure does serve it's purpose as a place to get away from it all.
A beaver pond ~ this gets Slim's adrenaline pumping ... the big trapper. I was just hoping to see a moose walk out ... that gets my adrenaline pumping.
Our friend, Porky, with a BIG beaver chewing of a birch tree. When the Big Slim sees signs of beaver like this by a pond you'd think he was going to have "the big one!"

Some pics of the different kinds of fir trees ~
blue spruce & balsam (round needled)
balsam (flat needled) the kind preferred for wreaths by the factories because they don't crush in shipping
Spruce have beautiful needles; but they won't stay on long enough for a wreath ~ and they are very prickly to handle... plus despite their beauty... they stink. Balsam has a very nice scent to it. I like making wreaths with round needles because they make a very full looking wreath.
Tamarack has very soft needles; but they turn yellow and then fall off the trees in the winter months.
notice the snow!!!
What a difference a day makes.

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
