Tools Tools Tools and more tools. It seems growing up that the most valued Father’s Day gift was a tool. I remember giving dad, socks, ties, games and yeah, he appreciated all of it, but nothing made his eyes light up like a tool or hunting gear. Yeah, this post is about tools but I have to be honest, hunting gear was always a favorite too!
There is something universal in the tactile sensation for a man in building something, or tackling a home project by themselves. My husband even took up the hobby of building things at home. My favorite creation he made was a picture frame to frame one of my paintings. Once upon a time, I painted as a hobby. That was pre-kids, pre-blog, pre-life. I thought he was pretty crafty, but projects take time and with kids he didn’t have time to do any home projects anymore. Neither of us did. Plus, we’re not about to do any home repairs ourselves. I have CRAZY home repair stories to tell you, they all have to do with pipes and water. Water everywhere! Let’s just say, pipes and us do not get along.
