Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Belated Valentine's Day!
This year Jim and I decided to make our Valentine's Day gift to each other together. After a bit of thinking, we decided on a bird feeder which was a lot of fun to figure out all the plans, measurements and angles. We were a great team while working on it together.

Jim in fact did a lot of the work. He insists that we worked on it together and I adore him for it. We drew up the plans together and figured out a lot of the measurements before hand. I did get to play with the heavy machinery but only with his guidance to make sure I didn't chop off any limbs. It was truly a fun experience with him. I'm glad we worked on our gift together because after all, that's what Valentine's Day is about.

Above is the finished result of our bird feeder. We still have to sand it down, paint, add a wooden dowel for the birds to stand on and attach it to a post. I cannot wait to wake up with a cup of coffee and watch the New England birds visit our bird feeder.
