L is for...

Lovin' Husband...

This is the guy that I married.  He puts up with my moods.  (That right there says a lot...)  He knows that gifts for me are probably not the 'typical' girlie-girl stuff.  He bought me a bunch of fencing and fence staples one year.  He did get me a kitten this year, but I think he wanted it as much as I did...

The man that has no problem with me being "Farmer Jane", and even took care of all the animals when I ended up with a broken leg.  He even went so far as to learn how to cook some meals in the crock pot, as I was so out of it, I probably would have burned water at that point.

He stayed with me when I had to have surgery, even when an aide told him he had to leave.  He is unfailingly polite, he just told her no, my wife needs me.  (And, Boy Howdy, did I, at that point!)

He's helped me learn skills that I didn't have, I have been able to teach him some skills he didn't have.  He is a very helpful cookie critic, and is quite happy to sample my latest batch of baking...

He loves me, and he is good around his family, and my family, is a strong, caring man, with a goofy sense of humor, and a generally happy and comfortable in his own skin.

Guess I'll keep him!  ; )

Well, it is going to be busy for me for a bit.  I finally sat down and filled out the calendar for the next month.  BUT, that lead to the next, and the next.  I won't be going to everything that is listed, but I could be more or less on the go nearly every other day, if not every day, for the next 2-3 months if I really wanted to.  I had to write everything down, because there are several things I have to do, like giving a speech at a group meeting in May.  But there are things I want to do, and a few, possibly, that I should do.  That being said, I am putting my foot down, and there are some that I won't do, as well...

In with all this, I am trying to assist Husband, who is helping Mom and Dad with a kitchen rebuild.  It was busy today, I pulled tacks from the wall that held old insulation, Mom was hunting down the tacks I dropped on the floor.  Dad and Husband were figuring out where the electrical was going to go, and was working on that part, and then putting in some new insulation.  I shied away from that task, I am really bad about breaking out when I deal with fiberglass in any form, so I decided that staying in the other room was a very good idea.  

I have also tried to start some seeds.  Nothing yet, I had them in the green house with a heat pad.  Well, the outlet didn't work, so I brought them in the house.  I haven't seen any germination yet, but I am sort of impatient.  I will wait another week, then see what I will do for plan B.  

So, I will have to pick a time, and hide somewhere, and catch up on blogs again! EEEEP!!  I miss reading everyone's blogs!


  1. It's so hard to keep up sometimes! My method is often, read, do a chore or a portion of one, respond to a blog, do a chore or the next portion, read another, on and on. It makes me work faster so i can get back to the fun!

    Your husband sounds like quite the gem, like my Sweetie.

  2. Great topic for L. Love it!

  4. Sounds like a good one to keep indeed. :-)

  6. Sounds like you've got a keeper there. ;-)
