July: onward

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

WHEW. I am so glad to be done with all the extra stuff going on in June, personally and at work. Slowly getting back on track with tracking and doing better now that I have a little more time. I started this with the intention of catching up, but what I need to catch up on the most is sleep. Off to bed.

More on 40 years

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

What are key ingredients of a successful 40 year marriage as I see it?

emoticon 1. Sense of commitment to carry us through the tough times
emoticon 2. Our faith
emoticon 3. Mutual respect for our differences
emoticon 4. Support when one of us is having a hard time
emoticon 5. Sense of humor is a must.

Classic example of what makes us tick in the following incident...
Setting: Husband and I are walking by the bay around sunset. We notice flock of birds.
Husband's comment: "Look; one's going the wrong way."
My instant response: "No, that one had a better idea."

40th anniversary

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Saturday was our 40th anniversary. We had a pleasant laid back day, having done our big celebrating last year with a cruise. We ate seafood at a small restaurant by the bay, visited the new Trader Joe's, and finished up with dessert from Schocolad, my very favorite chocolate shoppe.

Unexpected!

Saturday, May 24, 2014

Woohoo! We are celebrating our 40th anniversary, actually May 31, but it was Memorial Day 40 years ago. What a nice surprise we had Thurs night when our daughter called to ask if we could pick her up at the airport on Saturday! Yes, yes, yes! We didn't expect to see her until August. Tomorrow we'll be able to celebrate other daughter's birthday together as a family.

Sharing the kitchen

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

After a late dr appointment and grocery shopping for tonight's dinner with mom and boyfriend, it was pretty late when I got home and ate dinner, leftovers thanks be.
emoticon Sweetie husband, whose skills are NOT geared toward the kitchen, gave me a hand with making WeightWatchers carrot cake, carrot squash casserole, and fresh corn salad. He needs specific directions, like find this bowl, stir that, dump this in there, etc, but it was helpful because I could work on one thing while he did something else. He is so sweet. Comment: "This is fun to do together." We celebrate our 40th this month, and he is still a keeper!
