Forty Second Anniversary

Yes, we got married in kindergarten. Not really. We were both 21 years old and as naive as they come. But, here we are, beating the odds. After a 45 minute traffic stoppage (due to a travel trailer crashing across both lanes), we had a lovely late lunch at Macaroni Grill and I had the small piece of chocolate cake with chocolate sauce and extra whip cream. I am treating the dessert like a joint anniversary and birthday cake. I'm not buying a special bakery buttercream fudge cake this year. No I'm not.

After lunch I went and looked to see if TJ Maxx had anything I wanted. They did not. Then we visited Whole Foods and I got two bottles of G's favorite German Reisling, some aged Gouda from Holland, Buzz Free Coffee and some multi grain rolls. I also got red sweet potatoes and beets. There was a lovely vegetable saute in the prepared food section at WF and it was yellow squash, zucchini, baby asparagus, red onion, broccoli and red and yellow peppers. I want to make some of that and eat it every day. I'll add some of my freshly harvested pole beans to my saute.

Now we are home and G is continuing to clean out the garage. He found all this stuff that he wanted to take to the dump (and pay a fee) and I calmly informed him that all those items can be recycled in the free Town recycle containers. I wonder about his thought processes.

I have books to read and cozy pajamas to change into. I finally found my Insurance Waiver papers after looking all over for them and thinking I had shredded them yesterday. Survivor is on tonight (Wednesday and not Thursday). Work tomorrow.

Riley stepped on a bee today on his morning walk. Another sore paw. One more to go; three's the charm.

Congratulations on your 42nd anniversary. I wish you many, many happy returns of this day. I'm glad your celebration was nice.

Poor Riley! There must be something in the air (no pun intended) as both my dogs were stung by bees today.

Best wishes again. Sounds like it was a good day!
