had the opportunity to relax with some of my hobbies a bit more.
I thoroughly enjoy working with my hands and working with things

is one of my favorites, but unfortunately I don't have a lot of
time to spend on it. Here are some pieces I've done in the past

I am working on. I found this small piece of wood in the forest

a couple of things from it, but the wood wouldn't let me. It told
me it wished to be a canoe... so here it is.
