Check off another year!
In honor of our anniversary, the weather today was hot. Sun shining, birds singing and the house needed cleaning.
Sometimes I wonder if any of the fundamentals of my life have changed at all.
We managed to load the car this morning chock full of things which needed to go to the recycle center. Stopping on the way, we had breakfast at Juice. Mini-omelets with tomatoes, feta and olives. Flat bread with cheese, milch kaffee and, of course, juice.
Open and airy without the echos that come with many of the modern designs, it also looks like a nice place to stop in the afternoon for a cup of tea and a bit of knitting. The service personnel are excellent and friendly (bucking also the trend trendy places needing waitstaff who sneer at customers).
Just as good as dinner last night at our favorite Thai restaurant. And that sums up the special things we did together since I am not really counting emptying out the car or sorting things in the basement storage rooms or attempting to get screens on a couple of windows.
Our evening had been preempted by a friend of George’s (dating back to the kids in the Altstadt Kindergarten) who was celebrating his 65th birthday. The salad was excellent, as was the pumpkin soup with the fresh fruit in chocolate mouse to die for.
Otherwise – I am listening to Tom Smith’s Death Sheep Radio which has a nice mix of filk, political satire and general whacky humor. The studio recordings in the play list are by far better than the live recordings, but hey – I am not complaining. I need the up as I wade through the studio which is in that horrible situation of looking worse before it gets better. I am down to the last box, I can see the window desk top and there are enough sucked dry insects to prove that spiders rule over all.
I promise pictures on Monday. Honest.
Happy anniversary. Our 54th was on the 8th. We celebrated by going to our favorite restaurant. The rest of the day was pretty ordinary. Oh yes, I, too, am attempting to clean out my study. (aka–stash and computer room). We’re having company in two weeks. Company sleeps in guest room, family sleeps in study.
54 years – that is really impressive – the two of you must have been barely legal when you married!
I cleaned out the drawers in the built-in hutch in the dining room where I store my table linens. I found that I have 6 Christmas tablecloths. I’m keeping 2. Also cleaned out a couple kitchen drawers. Not the progress you are making, but progress nonetheless. Every little bit helps.
How is your daughter liking NYC? We are going there next Mon-Sat…should be fun.
Congrats on the anniversary! Sounds like you may have been married a while…as the number of years married is in-directly proportionate to the amount of hoopla. The mousse DID sound good, though.
Wishing you and George a happy anniversary, a day late!
