No rest for the wicked at Casa de Tantumblogo July 20, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, blogfoolery, Domestic Church, family, fun, General Catholic, non squitur.
Bit of a non sequitur personal post. You may wonder what I do on weekends. Lately, I build things for my kids. In addition to a chicken coop and rabbit hutch, I’ve been working on this fort for the last 6 weeks or so:
For the statisticians – 6′ wide x 6.5′ long x 12.5′ tall. All pressure treated pine construction. Frame of 4x4s and 2x6s. Made from scratch, no plans. Decided against a swingset, for reasons I can’t recall. It’s mostly done now save for closing in the open ends on each side and a few other details. The kids seem to like it. They plan on turning it into a private clubhouse. They may even sleep out there when it stops being 100 degrees.
No TV can be a boon to productivity. We had a birthday party Saturday and it was a hit with the 4-10 year old boy crowd.
That made me pretty happy.
