Yesterday was our anniversary. The Honey and I have been married 32 years! We’ve had good ones and bad ones—but the fact that we’re still together means something. We’re either truly in love…or crazy! Our kids sometimes think we’re crazy! ;)
We had no obligations the day was ours! It was slow paced and wonderful. Nothing over the top. We had coffee in the morning and breakfast of bacon, eggs, and biscuit for me. Coffee and a Bear Claw for Honey.
Afterwards we attending the “ 2nd Annual Wild-flower Festival” a local event. I had my camera but didn’t take many pictures while there… I was enjoying the moment. Right before we left I took some pictures of the old tractors.
We left there and went to a big yard sale – Honey had seen it advertised in the paper—It was a fund raising sale. I have a funny story to tell you about this. As we were walking back to the car from the tractors—I was telling Him, I’d like to find a different chair for him; to go in the living room. I quickly ran through a list of features for a this chair.
- Reclining (would be nice, I said)
- Reasonably PRICED
- Leather (while I’m wishing)
We arrived to the OLD nursing home… OLD…because we have a new one built in town as a replacement! It’s about to become a Women’s Shelter with the help of Volunteers and Lowe’s Heroes…. More on that later.
Anyway—back to the chair. We pulled up and there it was! The exact chair I was describing. It had everything I’d just told him I was looking for in a chair, not even a half hour earlier.
(before I cleaned it)
BLUE, you say? Minor detail. Had I known, I was going to get what I wished for ON OUR ANNIVERSARY… I’d have asked for BROWN LEATHER.
Well A ton of other things come to mind too. ;) Has that ever happened to you? Getting what you wished for …sorta?
We also went to the flea market and had Chinese Buffet later in the afternoon. I’ll share more with you on that later.
‘Til next time, Be blessed!
