The Husband and I finished and installed a fun project on Friday. Some of you may remember I talked about the work-in-progress fence project last Sunday.
Amazingly it only took us six days from creating the first fence panel to the installation of seven panels weaved with branches from the backyard trees. That's a short time, considering who we are. It was lots of fun working with the Husband on it. He agreed.
We love the final result. We don't know about the neighbors, who I hope simply think of us as those old hippies doing their thing. Hmmm. Maybe that's not a good idea. The Daddy warned me not to end up being a hippie, which to this day I have no idea what he considered made up a hippie. I can only hope I did not disappoint him. lol
This morning the Husband showed me how to tie Boy Scout knots. One knot reminded me of the stitch the Mama taught me for hemming. Another knot had me thinking of knitting, and still another of crochet. I didn't do so well remembering the looping sequences he showed me but whatever I did worked. "That's what counts," said he.
"I have our next fun project," I said. "You have to say 'yes' without knowing what it is."
"I won't agree with anything when I don't know what it is."
"Do you have faith in me that you'll like doing the project."
Begrudgingly the Husband said, "All right."
Holding up the stick on which I was practicing knots, I said, "Wind chimes made with keys."
The Husband smiled a thumbs up.
By the way we discovered our theme song today, which marks our 22nd trip together around the sun as a married couple. Whooo-hooo! "Together (Wherever We Go)" sung by the snazzy, snappy, sophisticated Eydie Gorme and Steve Lawrence.
