It might not be a beautiful sight to anyone but me,
but the fence is finished!!!
My husband replaced all the rotted and missing pickets...
put up fencing where none had existed before...
My poor, sweet, chippy, peely-paint cottage!
Cannot wait until we start painting sometime next year (paint party at our place!).
And yeah, I also feel a fence painting party coming on, too.
Tom Sawyer, anyone?
The Mister, being a teacher and on Christmas break,
has spent the better part of the weekend at the new casa
getting one of the barns cleaned out and ready for the two pups.
It's gonna be the Husky Hilton by the time he gets finished!!
Speaking of Christmas break....
Mr. Twig will be headed up to Portland, Oregon early Tuesday morning
and will be spending a week there with his parents and a few of his six siblings.
No, it's not ideal being apart this time of year, but it's really, really important
for him to be there for his folks, this year more than ever.
Some things have happened in recent months, which have made us both
realize just how precious these people we call parents really are in our lives...
we need to treasure them while we are still lucky enough to have them.
And besides, I'll be working lots and lots (and LOTS) at the hospital, so I'll be keeping busy.
My sweet mom will be spending the week with me, as will my goofball cat, so don't feel too sorry for me!
It's all good. :-)
Off to fix some dinner now.
I'll be back tomorrow to announce the winner of my giveaway,
have a wonderful evening!
