Friday was Ken and my thirty third anniversary. We don’t have a great track record when it comes to anniversaries. Generally a lot of them have been bad – from our first where we fought to our eleventh where I broke my ankle and spent a lot of time in the hospital.
Fortunately this one was much better than normal. Ken had the day off and worked around the house. I worked for part of the day. The day started with a nice conversation. I know that sounds little but it was pleasant to have that connection in the morning and the time to just say good morning and get ready for the day.
We hung out together in the afternoon and then went out to supper. We were going to try a new place. This always makes me anxious because I don’t know how easy it will be for me to get into the place and so on. However, I was determined not to let that stop up. We thought we knew how to get there but when we went out the way I thought we should, we couldn’t find the place. We turned around and came back to go to Olive Garden instead where we had a pleasant meal.
Yesterday we did all the errands – grocery store, pharmacy, post office, Hobby Lobby. I have nine rows of Vicki’s afghan left and ran out of her yarn so I had to get more yarn. I’m hoping to finish her afghan today or this week. It depends. Nine rows doesn’t sound like a lot but this is a round afghan so the rows get bigger each time. I worked on it yesterday and only managed to get four rows done.
Today is father’s day. The girls took care of Ken’s gifts. I find myself missing my father and wishing I could call him. I know he is with me every day but there are times that I want him physically here not just spiritually.
In our shopping yesterday we bought things that we need to process today. We have to make fruit salad, turkey burgers, cut up onions, and repackage some chicken. I’m hoping that won’t eat up too much of the day so I can work on Vicki’s afghan. I’d like to be done with it.
It has been a busy weekend which was not unexpected. I was hoping to get some writing projects in but it doesn’t look like I will. I’m still working on one more edit for my fantasy novel and the second of my poetry books.
