In The Shed

I have another great story from my youth to share with you. You may remember my post about my Grandma's garden and how much I loved it. Her husband had one of those outdoor storage sheds that he kept his lawnmower and tools in. One day, I was helping him with some yard work and we went into the shed to get something, I don't remember exactly what it was but I saw something slither. I took off running and screaming, arms flailing, sure that the snake was going to attach itself to me and never let go. Of course, my mom comes flying out of the house and when she hears that I was in close contact with a snake, she literally shivered. Needless to say, I didn't offer to help him do anything in the shed again. Lucky for me, I grew out of the fear of snakes phase soon after that incident.

When my husband and I finally decide where we want to move to, I would like to have one of those Metal Sheds to keep his tools safe. Plus, that gives him a little area where he can get away and be alone. I guess that's not completely true because I'm the type of girl who likes to learn how to fix things. I'll change that to, now he will have a place to teach me different things, like using certain tools. Some people seem shocked when they find out that I know how to change a tire and can do it all by myself. Plus, I know how to change oil. My husband and Corey have been talking about buying an old car from the 50's or 60's and fixing it up. I told them that was fine with me as long as I can help. I've always wanted an old Mustang!

If you ask me, the lawn can make a huge difference in the appearance of the entire house. That's why I think it's a good idea to keep all of your gardening tools in one safe place. One of the Vinyl Sheds would be nice too, especially if it matches your house. Do you think having a shed is important?

  1. I know that my fiance wants a shed and a green house. It is nice to have especially since otherwise the tools come in and out of the house and you end up with trails of dirt or you could accidentally bring bugs inside. So yes. I think a shed is a always a great idea if you have enough tools to need one. Especially if you have gardening tools you use often or tools that may get grease on them!

    Great post!
