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.
Wonder is the cause of delight, because it carries the hope of discovery. -Thomas Aquinas 1225-1274

Dragonflies are symbols of significant meaning in many cultures. On the ancient Nile they were used to represent life. In some Native American tribes they represent swiftness and activity, and for the Navajo they symbolize pure water. It is said in some Native American beliefs that dragonflies are a symbol of renewal after a time of great hardship. In Japan dragonflies are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness, and they often appear in art and literature, especially haiku. In ancient mythology, Japan was known as Akitsushima, which means "Land of the Dragonflies". In Vietnam the dragonfly is used as a barometer for the weather. In other cultures the dragonfly represents a wild and free spirit.
