For now, it has only been desks, tables, and the likes - especially the kind you purchase from IKEA or Walmart, all the numbered pieces, and fix with the kit that comes along with it following the diagram on the manual.
When we move up to owning a house in the future, I am looking forward to many recreational activities together such as building closets, painting walls, and so on.
I believe it is essential for couples to find an activity to spend time together - especially in this day and age when we are mostly glued to watching TV, busy on our computers, and engrossed in our phones.
There are many common leisure activities for couples: going out for movies, playing board games, cooking together or going out for meals, clubbing, hiking, traveling, and so on. While Alok and I absolutely are two opposite sides of the pole with varied interests, one thing we do have in common is assembling and fixing things together.
So, ever since our journey after marriage began, I remembered to capture this memory each time we built something. (Yes, the camera is placed on self-timer, in case you were wondering.)
Men do not like to read instructions as you might be aware. So I read the manual and guide him. Men also do not like to follow directions as you might be aware. So we argue, and I win most of the times. But it surely makes some of our weekends more enjoyable.
I now want to buy some creative projects, some jigsaw puzzles, some bigger canvases, and I am looking for some more ideas to try. To build things around the house, and to build our memories.
