A Productive WeekendI barely knit a stitch this weekend, but it was a wonderfully productive weekend nonetheless.
On Saturday, we started the day by giving Abby a bit of a haircut. She will NOT tolerate the electric clippers so we have to do our best with a pair of scissors. We trimmed the extra-long fur around her neck in an attempt to keep her a little cooler as the temperatures push into the 80s.
The next project for Saturday was building a fence. I helped with the drilling, screwing, measuring, and fetching-and-carrying.
Shawn did all of that stuff too, plus he pounded in the fence post stakes with a really heavy sledgehammer. I tried to hit the stake a few times, and I could barely lift the sledgehammer above my head.
The rest of the work-crew left a lot to be desired, however.
But the end result is SO worth it! It'll probably take us another couple of weekends to finish, but I'm so happy with how it's looking so far. We're still debating whether we want to paint it white eventually.
On Sunday, we packed Abby into the car and drove north to Philadelphia to visit S' friends from grad school. After a lovely lunch, we headed over to Valley Forge and exposed Abby to some culture...
... she seemed more impressed by the moles in the fields than the giant memorial arch.
