If it is too cold to dig...

Build stuff.

I don't remember how old I was when my dad first started teaching me how to build stuff.  He probably didn't even set out to teach me - he was always building stuff, and I was always following him around.  And I learned, and my brother learned, and now we can build respectable, if clearly amateur, bookshelves and other furniture based on right angles.  Chairs...not so much.

And so I continue the family tradition.



 The finished product!
