DO YOU REMEMBER
Hi there bloggy friends! ❤️ It’s Saturday 5PM. A cold damp day, 38 degrees F. We celebrated our son-in-law, Erick’s, 50th birthday today at a local restaurant. I can just about remember turning 50. Can you? The reason I remember it is because it was 2000. Y2K. And my birthday was 4 days into the new year. I didn’t know it at the time but a few months later my husband, Doug, would be diagnosed with brain cancer, and later my daughter would get married and our son and wife would give us our first grandchild. A year to never forget.
If you like traveling down memory lane, how about reading the blog called WEAVER OF GRASS. I loved the comments section also. In todays post she asks if we remember our first kiss…our first “grown up” kiss. I don’t and I know I should. It’s not that I was kissed by so many it’s just that it must not have been that memorable I guess. I do remember my girlfriend arranging a double blind date. It was the summer we graduated high school. We went to a drive in movie. My friend and her future husband went at it in the front seat while my supposedly shy date decided to give me a very bad case of swollen lips and whisker burn in the back seat. My first and last blind date. I was ashamed to be seen by my parents or anyone else for a couple of days. Not something you forget!
Roger is hoping I will watch the football game so I will head downstairs. I brought my dessert home from the restaurant so I am looking forward to it and a nice cup of tea. I received happy mail today from Amazon. I used some of my gift cards. This shipment included 3 pairs of reading glasses, a coffee mug warmer, ear pods that fit over the back of the ears (my iPods keep falling out of my ears), a larger teapot with infuser, 2 cases of Sheba pate cat food for our 18 yr old Nika, and a set of “SHORTIE” interchangeable knitting needles. Bliss.
I will include a few photos taken this past week.
And there you have it.
Take good care of yourselves
