We've had a lot of snow lately and on top of that I've been sick so I've been housebound for about 10 days. The one day I did manage to get out of the house was the day I drug myself to the doctor's office. But I've managed to keep myself sane with my Kumihimo projects. I'm working on my 6th project right now! Call me a Kumihimo addict cause I just can't stop. Ask my husband and my dogs...they'll rat me out for sure!
Between snowstorms(we had 2 major snowstorms/blizzards within one week)our hot water heater went kaput and flooded part of our basement. We were without hot water for 3 days! So my Anniversary/Valentine's Day gift from my dear sweet hubby is a brand new water heater... He said it's the gift that keeps on giving all year long! Try living without a hot shower in the middle of winter when you're sick. I never realized how much I depended on something that we all take for granted! We've got big fans blowing in the basement 24/7! It should be dried out by tomorrow sometime.
So tonight we're celebrating our 35th anniversary @ The Elkridge Furnace Inn with a romantic candlelight dinner for two. Thirty five years ago we got married at the courthouse in Selma, Ala. I was 19 and Mike was 22 and a 2nd Lt. in the Air Force. Three years ago we were in Tahiti renewing our vows. I'm glad we're home this year! Maybe next year we'll go to Hawaii. Now that my husband has returned to the workforce anything is possible! Wow! 35 years! Now that calls for a celebration and I plan to enjoy the romantic setting with a great meal and the company of the man of my dreams, the father of our children, & the love of my life.
