Saturday was my Wedding anniversary—Twenty-three years, a huge investment in a person’s life. Over time, relationships evolve and change, Don and I have spent a lot of time talking about that lately. Age and wisdom are incredible things. We went out to dinner Friday night – and relived the wedding rehearsal and wedding details. We laughed this time because the first time we both were pretty nervous.
Saturday, I planted the garden. Don tilled it up for me. In past years, it seemed like I fought to get it all done. It’s not like we depend on it for food or anything but it just seemed like a battle to get everything done. But this year, I enjoyed it like crazy. It even sprinkled a little while I planted. Friends who have lived here all their lives swear that planting during sprinkles is a sign of a bumper crop. Time will tell I guess. Don laughs, maybe we’ll get that bumper crop of Black eyed Susan’s, daisies, oh and pumpkin gourds—he can hardly wait!!!:). My Garden signs aren’t up but the Garden Angel is watching over the rows as you read this….
A few months ago I found this website, Leanne’s House, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Not knowing anything about Australia, I looked to a friend for answers. She’s been great. I asked those ridiculous questions like how the seasonal colors work with seasons being opposite from ours, and what do you have for Christmas dinner and does Santa wear that big red coat with White fur in Australia in the summer time???? She’s answered the questions and the word ‘Dingbat’ was never typed. She sent me this.
Chelsey and I have enjoyed the DVD (Yes – we’re totally enchanted with the accent!!) and I’m saving the wrapping paper for something special. Thanks again- quilting friends are the best.
