Painting the Picket Fence

My generous family are here this weekend, and aside from the meals and cups of coffee we'll share with some delightful conversation........ we are spending our time together repainting our picket fence! It's Saturday morning and everyone (bar me, I'm on child duty...) is thick into it again. We started yesterday at around 2pm and will probably continue for most of today and tomorrow morning as well.

It's looking GREAT already!!! Here are some photos I took yesterday afternoon.....

....... nailing in the loose boards..........

.......... Nanna and Grandpa hard at work..........

I feel so blessed right now. My parents coming all this way and putting in hours of work to help us with this project; healthy, happy children; school holidays and a husband who is home with us; beautiful warm and breezy spring weather; and a God who has blessed us with all this!!!

"The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy". Psalm 126:3

Mmmmmmm - that will look so nice and fresh Min. And what an achievement for you all - good old fashioned hard work out in the sunshine. Much love to all (give Ros a big hug for me!!)
