This weekend, my husband decided that he needed a solid fence
next to his shed. He had planned and Saturday morning
he did the post holes and the cement. He decided that today he and
the boys would go ahead and finish it.
They are building the big gate so that the cars and the lawnmower
and the tractor can get through. I am so glad because do you remember
last year when I wrote about working out there with my saw, people
would come barreling down the driveway with weird questions.
Now when I am out there by myself, no one will see me.
You know what else is really neat. All of the left over wood.
I am so excited because my husband saved all of it just for me.
I can't wait to see what I can make out of it.
The boys all drove in the nails. It is amazing how much
work 3 pretty close to grown men can get done. How fast too.
My husband's great, great grandfather had nine sons. Just think of how much work
he got accomplished.
It has needed to been done. We just never thought about it. Now I don't have to panic
when Sasha takes off running after a cat she won't be able to go in the road. When the
kids are bigger and they can go out here by themselves. Gama won't be afraid.
It was a very good day. It was sort of a men deal. Emilie and I walked out to ask
if we could help. We were told with glances that this was mens work and women
were not wanted.
It was kinda weird. I wasn't sorry though. It was nice to lay around the house. :)
Have a great week!
