More home improvements

Well, DH was pretty busy this fall with replacing part of the fence in our backyard.  Between finding the time and waiting for the weather to cooperate, he managed to to stain all the wood, dig the post holes, pour the concrete, build the fence, build and mount the gate and install a new magnetic latch (with some help from his brother, BIL, and a little bit of help from me).      And while this picture looks extremely crooked (a side effect of the panoramic camera setting), the fence is actually very straight.

In other news, we decided it was time to replace the refrigerator.  It has been leaking cold air from the freezer ever since we moved in, but other than that it has worked fine.  Until the light fixture broke.   We thought about just fixing the light, but decided to bite the bullet and get a new one, instead of throwing a few hundred dollars into a leaky fridge that could bite the dust at any time.  I think I'll be really happy with the one we picked out.  But before it comes next week, DH will have to move a light switch, run a water line, and remove the wine rack from the kitchen wall.   I hope it doesn't look too big in our kitchen, but I know I'll enjoy the 26 cubic feet after using our current 18 cubic foot one.
