This is a story about my sweet Dear Husband. Several years
ago, he started building a swing for us in the back yard. He
built the frame so the chain would be long for a gentle swing.
But life and other projects took priority so the swing stayed
unfinished awhile until DH could finish it just like he wanted.
Years ago he finished the roof. He used cedar shingles that
would weather just so!
And he gave the squirrels a place to sit, but alas, no swing...
like it really belonged. Here is my son walking away.
No one ever sat on the bench.
Then Dear Husband found a craftsman who made beautiful
cedar swings. Time to finish the covered swing!
Of course, Dear Husband had to make an extra trip to the
hardware store to get... extra hardware ...
Finally, it is finished and it is wonderful! I know I will
enjoy many an evening to come in my swing. I thought
about it, and from start to finish took about nine years.
But so what! It was well worth the wait!
Thanks for listening to my story today! Come swing awhile!
