the eric update - day 1877: staining the sauna!

"just" five months after raising the snowdeal sauna we're finally getting around to staining it. we decided to go with a traditional "barn red" which is certainly appropriate for the area ( see "why are barns red" if you're wondering about the history of the color. ).

it's on days like this that i'm so thankful that odin absolutely loves, loves, loves to help us with projects. it's so much fun to "work" and play at that the same time. as long as not too much stain gets spilled :-)

and how is it possible that i've never taken a photo of the finished structure after a year of collecting sauna stones, felling cedar trees, breaking ground, framing the site, prepping for cement, pouring cement, putting out hands in the concrete, raising the sauna, enjoying an inaugural sauna complete with throwing of the steam and odin's inaugural sauna?

fixed that error.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
