It comes as no surprise that I like diving into new interest and hobbies (much to Steve’s dismay! Although this makes it easy to buy me gifts because there’s always new materials or tools I need!). I’m always anxious to learn something new for my “tool belt” of skills. My brother shares this trait. He’s about as handy as they come and when he wanted to weld a table for their kitchen, he did some research, bought some tools and got to work. Welding is an area that I would like more experience. I took one class with Steve as part of our anniversary one year but that’s it.
While in Idaho, I had him show me the ropes of welding. Really, I was racking my brain trying to figure out what I could weld and take home with me. All my ideas were too large to fit in my car! Instead, my brother and I spent a couple hours practicing – grinding, welding joints, polishing, etc. I’m sure I sound like a broken record to Steve, but I could totally see myself getting into this! I’ve got a list of projects already that I could weld and add wood. By the time my kids are all in school I’m going to have a laundry list of interests and still no time to do them all.
