After many months of procrastinating, I have renewed my work on building the fence on my property border. The main reason for starting now is that I want to get my chickens into their chicken house, and I need to fence off the area to protect them from any predators. I was going to work with my neighbor on building this, but I want to get the chickens a little more space that the room I have them in currently.
I spent a few hours on Friday sourcing the missing pieces of wood that I required to work on the fence. I walked down to the local Hardware store and arranged the delivery of a few 6 meter long rails, and Kitty and I went for a drive to another hardware store in Huonville to buy the pickets we would be using (we needed to do a little grocery shopping too).
Saturday morning, early rise, and out to work. I had Kitty and my eldest son to help me, which made the work a lot easier and enjoyable. We had time to talk and work, and even had a laugh or two. My dog Morleigh was there too to lend her support.
I only managed to complete around 6 meters of the fence, as I only had enough money to buy a small amount of materials. I hope to buy enough to finish another 6 meters next weekend, so… within a couple of months, this project should be finished.
Afterwards, I enjoyed a couple of my newly brewed Auburn Ales… and they went down a treat! I thought that they were good, yet when I shared some with some close friends they told me that the beer was so good, they would buy it if it were ever sold. One of my friends who is a wine drinker tried some, and he told me that it was so good he would drink it instead of wine. High praise indeed!
