Celebrating four

Though wood may be the traditional wedding anniversary gift after five years, we celebrated four years with a preview of the materials for our soon-to-be-built home and Thai food.

Happy four years, handsome.

Rain dancing

Mallory, my niece who lives in Nashville, heard of our plea for rain dancers and did one just for us. Melts my heart, this one. 

I'm sure it will rain now.

Wire winding for dummies

Six months ago we began taking down the barbed wire fencing around the property. By hand, thanks to the delayed receipt of our new fangled wire winder.

This week we continued taking down fencing but this time with the coveted wire winder. It hooks to the back of the tractor, and with the aid of the tractor's power, purports to make short work of the task.

And boy did it.

I think we're in love.
