While my writing should be legible, my photography... Well, I hope it is okay...
In other blogging:
I have FINALLY planted my garden, pics up soon, (Husband deserves an award this year, the stuff was a grassy mess, and while we were out there, he churned up a six inch square iron plate! (We have found lots of odd stuff, in fact, the previous owner gave us a "welcome" gift of two bottles that I have sitting on my kitchen window sill, that HE found while gardening.)
The bees in the aforementioned blog are doing nicely, so says our friend, they have built up comb and are starting to make honey. (Yay!)
I took time off last week, it was Husband and my 20th anniversary. We decided to have some "us" time. He told the people he worked for that he was going "on vacation" and wouldn't be available to work, I told my volunteer groups that I wasn't going to be there, and found subs where I needed to, and...
We just stayed home! We even sort of curtailed computer use (hence not a lot o' blogging). We read books, we did chores around the house with and for each other, we worked on setting up the garden... And Husband decided we needed new bookshelves. I truly believe this was self defense. I have a lot of books. Let me rephrase that. I have a big, honking, huge pile of books that really needed someplace to be other than the side of the hall, stacked like an avalanche hazard... So he bought 2 new bookshelves, which he said were "mine", and he claimed the old one as "his".
Of course, you realize this meant I had to remove all of my books and load them up on the new shelves, and getting them in some semblance of order. And Husband wanted all the "nice" books closest to the front room, where people could see them. (Meaning all my paperbacks were relegated to the second bookshelf, hidden away from general viewing...)
Okay, there are some movies and DVD's too, but that's only like ONE shelf... Well, and he wanted to have the Polish vase, and a red glass float, and this... picture of me... Everyone likes this picture... EXCEPT me... on the shelves, but it still held all my books, with a smidgen of space left. I have to start reading faster!!!
But, we had a quiet dinner out for our anniversary, and we read, I knit, Husband worked on the boat, I gardened, we walked, we chatted, I cooked, we cleaned stuff...
In short, we decided to just be together for awhile, without distractions.
It was sooo cool! We might just have to do it again!!
(And on another note, I think that I will be able to comment on other's blogs, and respond on my own blog now, I have tested it a couple times, it seems
