The kids wanted to make him a cake.
We decided to decorate it....a cake decorator I am not!!
We should have listened to Zoe who suggested making the blade gray and the handle orange :) We had fun!
I ordered pizza (a salad for me) for dinner. Cake and ice cream for dessert after Ellen came home from work. I will join him at 63 in March....how the heck have we gotten so old??!
Today is our 43rd anniversary.
One of those benches (maybe you would call them pews) is sitting in my basement living room. I'm thrilled to have it because I tend to be very nostalgic....but let me tell you, they were probably the most uncomfortable church benches ever!!
The man that did the flowers for our wedding was later (much later) a resident at the nursing home where I was the Activity Director. I loved telling him how my mother and I came to his shop and how he listened to my ideas. He knew just how to make our flowers look Christmas-ey and beautiful! He would lean forward and smile as I told him my story. Not sure he ever got it that I was talking about him and that's just fine. It obviously brought great pleasure to us both.
Today I decided to just take it easy. I've had a sore throat for two days now and a cough that just isn't going away. My energy level is at 0. Today it seemed especially so. I'm snuggled in a cover on the day bed in our living room....I'm snoozing and watching HGTV and Food Network.....something I never do during the day. Hope I can kick this to the curb soon!!
Hope you are well and enjoying the day. If not, pull out a cover, relax and take a snooze ;-)
