party for 2.



yesterday a smallish party happened
to commemorate a day in my life.
the 25th anniversary of my 34th year.
you do the math cuz it scares me.

i worked at the antique shop until 4:30 then
headed home to enjoy a nice dinner of my choice. 
the hubs offered to take me anywhere i wanted 
to go for dinner. . . . . i chose home.
& i chose wild-caught salmon and broccoli and dessert.

so while the hubs got the grill ready
{the planks were set to go after a long soak}
i slathered some spicy stuff on the salmon,
then cut up the broccoli and got the water boiling. 
{3 minutes in boiling water & it's perfectly done}

the hubs tended the grill and i tended the broccoli.
quick work and a delish dinner for the two of us.


a homemade card from the heart ..
one i can color in with my pretty pencils.


i'm his heart .. and he's mine



flowers for his flower ..
part store bought and part from our very own garden


rose leaves .. beauty 


two desserts .. bought two individual servings the night before:
carrot cheesecake & tiramisu
we shared.
no picture.
gone.


the end.

  9. Sherry, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!! Looks like you had a pleasant one. All the best you young thang you. You're still on this side of 60. When I turned 59, 60 was on my mind a great deal. Now I'm heading toward 62. The time gets away. Broccoli has become one of my favorite veggies. Lately we have had hollandaise sauce on it.
    Each day a miracle,
    d

    1. not feeling so much like a young thang right now, deanna. worked at the shop yesterday and we had a paint delivery. 775 pounds of annie sloan chalk paint. hoisted it (in increments) up the stairs and onto the table. organized, labeled, tagged. last night my hands were screaming and this morning i'm moving a little slower. extended hot shower in the plan. this gettin' older thing isn't exactly a favorite. ;)
