It is with mixed emotions that I have reached 46 years of marriage, with husband who passed on May 10th. We never did much more than a restaurant dinner, and some small gift on the day. This year will pass without that. We did go to Myrtle Beach for our 25th, and stayed for a week at a beach condo; and we went on a three day cruise from Boston to Montreal for our 40th anniversary. And we went to Carmel, CA for one of the early anniversaries when we lived in San Francisco. All of them were great, sightseeing and eating way too much. I think I will do grilled steak tomorrow; I have never fixed them, but I guess it isn't all that hard. My son, C, made a crock pot dinner of beef stew a few days ago which was inedible. I've eaten some poor food, like 1000 year eggs, abalone, other ethnic meals, but this stew was the awfullest of them all. We don't know what went wrong, if it was something in the spices, or what; it smelled good while it was cooking. Even the dogs were less than thrilled when C mixed it with their dog food.
Our neighbor just brought us homemade cinnamon rolls, yum. And she also gave us a macaroni salad with lots of veggies in it. She is spoiling us!
I got our photos from the funeral back from Walmart and they made me cry. The ones of , well here you can see for yourself:
And here is a photo of our living room, a little cluttered but not too messy. The foot in the white sock on the right edge is of N's foot, in his favorite easy chair. I can sit in it myself now. Alone.
Well, this has been an uplifting post (not). Hoping all of you are doing fine and enjoying the company of your loved ones for as long as possible...
Thought for the day: "A clean house is the sign of a misspent life."
