Some slow and steady progress on my goals:
6. Make a cane: I continued work on the cane I am making from a piece of ash. I am doing this completely by had. I have roughed out the shape of the cane and it is a bit thicker that I would like, so I have decided to carve an ivy and floral pattern into it. I have also tapered one end to accept the cane tip and have began forming the tenon for the handle.
20. Read 10 of the unread books on my bookshelves: I am making progress on my history of libraries and am now about half way through. I am also reading an e-book by Kathy Reichs called Spider Bones. I'm beginning to find her books tiresome and am not sure I'll bother reading any more. One aspect of her books that really bothers me as an anglophone from the Montreal area is her gratuitous use of French in ways that anglos never do. Downtown Montreal is downtown, not the centreville she uses. Salle 4 is Room 4. Rue Ste. Catherine is Ste. Catherine Street or just plain old Ste. Catherine. Anyway, I've nearly put that one to bed.
That's it for week 3.
