Gone Some Where?

Have you been on vacation? Done something fun? Are you dead?

Nope, not really.

I don't have any particularly great reason for not blogging anything last week. Plenty has been going on. Enough to keep me busy and exhausted, but nothing too interesting, I suppose.

Last week we had intended to go out of town to visit my folks, but since our workmen were working, we stayed home to supervise and work on our fence. Some of you may remember that we're building one. Most of you probably forgot a long time ago. But we are building a fence and it is a huge project. The yard is 100 feet wide and about 275 feet long. Our neighbors built a fence down one side, but we are fencing the back, down the other side and then across the middle of the house to enclose the back yard. We've now almost finished 160 or so feet and we have about 70 feet left to go on the side fence, before we can start on the fence that will go across the yard on either side of the house.

It's hot, sweaty work, but I got to use a reciprocating saw for the first time and that was pretty fun.

Anyway, other than fence building, we went to a small town on the Fourth (after working on the fence in the morning) to visit my sister-in-law and let the cousins all play together. We saw fireworks and stayed up way too late. Then we worked on the fence some more the next few days. On Saturday, we worked on the fence a little and bought cheap mulch from the city and I finally started mulching my flower beds.

And that's life as I know it.


Fence building is hard work, but it is so satisfying.

I'm tired just THINKING about it.

It's a tiring time of year here in the south! I'm sure you're making very good progress and will be able to claim your new old house for your own soon!
