Near

in the generous life

My husband and I have been working on a hoop house for the vegetable garden. While he was measuring and pounding some nails, I was pulling weeds (a never ending chore) and then we glued up some cross bars. We’re just about done.  :)

Even when we haven’t been working together on the hoop house, we’ve both been working in the yard on various activities. We’ve been near enough that we can talk and point. We’ve been there to lend a hand when needed.

I encourage y’all to spend time around your spouse even if you are not working on the same projects. There are bits of couple time to be had and you get to share about what you are doing. And, honestly, guys just seem to handle conversation better when they are doing something.

Take advantage of “near” time.

My hubby is gone away for his job. I won’t see him until the 24th of this month. It kills me to not be near him. I love just having him around and I REALLY love working on projects together. One of my favorite times was when he decided to make a reproduction 17th century wheeled sedan chair just for a lark. I drew up the plans and he built it with me assisting when needed. It was so much fun! We never did anything with it and it sits in our backyard right now, but that time together was fun and precious. I miss stuff like that.

This is a great point. I enjoy working together, or side by side, on projects, especially outdoor projects. Showed my husband the hoop house picture, and now he wants to build one over our garden!
