togetherness

Me "so what do you want to do now?" Hubby "it doesnt matter...i just want to hang out with you" Now, if that doesnt just melt your heart, I dont know what will. We spent the better part of today working side by side. together. we went into town to have a late lunch/early dinner at Texas Roadhouse. Roadhouse is a treat as we dont normall dine there. We promised ourselves when we got our tax money back, we would splurge and go on a date to Roadhouse. It didnt dissapoint. We continued on to Lowes and finally Tractor Supply. We added yet even more veggies to our garden, curtesy of Lowes. We walked out of TSC with goat fencing and Chicken Coop Building for Dummies. We continued our afternoon working in the garden and raised beds. We mixed in rabbit compost with our garden soil and planted our newly bought veggies. On the side of the house Hubby added blackberries. We already have a "hedge row" started of raspberries and blueberries. We are trying to make the backyard more private, and figured a berry hedge would do just that. Tomorrow we will plant our new plum tree. It will join the peaches, apples, and pear trees already established. Together, we added the entire roll of fencing to the ever enlarging goat pen. Currently the goats are confined in a large chain link enclosure, just waiting for hubby and i to finish their ultimate pen. We need one more roll of fencing and then it will be done. We had to quit working outside when it got too dark. I have to say I like this togetherness. We hauled trees together out of the goat pen. We planted jalepeno peppers together. We fed the goats together. We dined together. We laughed together. We had a great day, together.
