You will never guess what I learned to do!!!

 Most of you know I have THE MOST AMAZING HUSBAND in the whole wide world! He is so amazing that when I asked him to teach me how to WELD, He did not laugh at me. He was happy to teach me and I must say he is a really good teacher. He is patient and very encouraging. So yesterday while we had not a lot to do and we were spending a really lazy laid back day together. He suggested we go out and weld. I was more than happy to join him in the garage for my first lesson. What were we going to weld you ask? My tomato cages. You might laugh, and ask why would we weld something that costs a whole 3 dollars at the nearest hardware store? I'll tell you why, They are junk and every year when we buy another set and put them in the ground they always break. I am just so sick of paying for junky products. So I decided that we would make our own and we will probably never need to buy any more.
I am happy with the way they turned out! one of them is a bit wonky but I think it will work just fine.

What a cool thing to learn, and what a patient hubby! I wish I could weld and drill and things like that. I think it would add so much to my hobbies. I am proud of you! Did you win the party contest? I hope so. I know you are a winner to your kiddos!

How very cool! I'm impressed - I've heard that welding is difficult to get right. I think it would be cool just to wear the helmet thing and play with the fire! You Go Girl!

I never thought of asking my hubby to teach me to weld. He is such a perfectionist with it he would probably loose his patience. But I might look into what I would like to make. You have given me quite a few things to think about.

What a great guy! And I'm also impressed that you wanted to learn! No way Jay would even think about attempting to teach me something like that... I'm not the best at following directions... :)
