Life is full. It’s still so important that we remember to play. In this case play with my food. And, play with one beautiful old board pulled from my son Charlie’s reclaimed wood pile. Ah, that playful idea of wanting to make a serving board? That does take a little longer than pulling food from the refrigerator and white plates from the cupboard. Good play sessions require that you remove all clocks from view. We did. That favorite man of mine has driven down the hill to do some ice fishing(play time) on Big Stone Lake with his friend Mike from Green Bay, WI. A few delightful hours stolen and here’s a glimpse of what my grown-up-country-girl play looks like at the RedBarn. Hope it inspires you to act on an idea that has been hanging around in your head …….. begging to become a winter project!
