Building Fences

We are spending the holiday weekend in Brenham with family.  It’s nice to spend some quality time after being away for awhile.  For us, quality time means swimming, walking, exploring, a lot of cooking and eating, and this time, working on the land.  Last Thursday and Friday, Brenham got about 24″ of rain and there was a lot of damage done to the land.  There was a lot of anxiety and worry about work already done around here and what this meant for the future.

We came up with some solutions, including a temporary fence so the neighboring cows wouldn’t invade the garden and house.  We all helped – even the kids – and got it done in this lovely Texas heat.  It is good to remind ourselves that it could have been worse. We were unharmed.  The house was unharmed, and after a few clean-up days, the property will be back to a new normal.
