Pictographic floors

This time I am making my paperbag floor in sections. I will add some sections with pictographs and cave paintings. The bright red comes from red tissue paper. I like the textured effect. Unfortunately I was not thinking and left the paper with colored construction paper out it the sun. Most of the brilliant reds, orange have faded in only a few hours. That was before I stained the paper.

I think they look spectacular. I wish I had time to complete the floor before the yurt comes but the yurt/ger should be here on Sunday.

Tonight I went out to water the plants when I met for the first time a young spring bunny. He just sat there and let me take his photo.

I never played blockhead or balancing games. Not a game lover but I think I would win.

Footprints in the Dust

As I looked over the edge of my platform I saw signs of visitors. The large prints belong to the cottontail. He actually ran under as I worked one day but I am not too sure who the tiny prints belong to.

Rim

Today I spent 5 hours working on the rim.measured 3 times, cut a new piece of nonstretch string, which does stretch by the way and with teeth clenched banded, screwed and anchored the rim.
When I was at the lumber yard looking for angles and screws the lady thought I was nuts.
Loudly, proclaiming
, ” You want to screw a curved wall to a flat floor! What you ate taking off the wall!” I tried to walk away saying someone else said they would help. She just looked at me huffed and harumphed shouting no one can help you.
I expressed my idea to my old helper friend who suggested short 1″ angles and a bendable metal band to hold the board ends together. It fit exactly with my thinking. Today I screwed it all into place. Exhaustion and wind had me quiting after 5 hrs.
Tomorrow I will caulk the seams then do something fun. Maybe check out Tombstone Wyatt Erup days.   After the caulking I still need to add some missing floor sections and paint.
With all the measuring and non stretch cord circumference I am not sure how that happened but  ot surprised.

Bad day at the aluminum can

Tried to work on yurt too windy to hold boards. Tried to do weed wacking broke weedwacker. Started gardening and got stabbed in the head with a yucca blood all over my face. If I had a closet I would go hide. 😥
One joint joined.
