The fence


I bet you thought I forgot about the fence, right? That I finished it long ago and just felt the humble need not to brag.

Nope.

I finally finished it over the weekend. After months and months of work (and some months of no work due to busy children who refuse to play outside), nailing and sawing and measuring and building, it's finally finished! I have my beautiful picket fence.

Down the two sides of our property I built picket by picket the fence you see. I couldn't bear cutting down the trees, shrubs and brush that line the back of our yard, and so I opted to just fill it all in instead. I installed a green temporary fence, while I wait for the bushes I planted to grow.

My little fence. We love it. There are rumours floating around that the Seniors' Centre may try to buy up the last 7 houses on our block as they expand. I don't know if I could bear to sell the house knowing they'd just tear down my beautiful fence! I feel like I just want to live here forever now!
