Well, I'm all behind schedule again today. We were sleeping in! We didn't get up until 6 a.m.this morning. I got all my Christmas decorations down yesterday and put away. Things look so different after you take out the tree. It's funny how you can get used to something so quickly. I'm hoping that I haven't left something up or out by accident.
When I finished that, I started hemming some of the pants that I received for Christmas. (Yeah, I know. I bought them for myself, but what can you do when Hubby can never think of anything to get me?) They were all way too long. Of course, all my pants are way too long, even petites most of the time. I'm only 5 feet tall. I got three pairs done and have one left to do. That sound excessive, but I haven't bought anything new in about 3 years.
Today is our anniversary. I wanted to get my seafood that I love, but that didn't work out. Son came to put the new wheel on the old wheelbarrow. Neither of the guys wanted seafood, but as it turned out, the restaurant wasn't even open today. We went to the next best place--the local greasy spoon and had cheeseburgers and onion rings. I suppose that my next opportunity for seafood will be Valentine's Day. But if Hubby isn't very romantic about our anniversary, how can I expect him to be romantic at Valentine's Day? I'm not complaining, though, because everyday with him is like Christmas, birthday, Valentine's Day, and all the rest of the holidays all the time. I have never been happier.

Happy Anniversary! So sorry you were not able to get some seafood. Your too easy my wife would not let up until we went and ate some. But then again I love to eat seafood too. I pitty my younger brother who cannot eat any type of shell fish any more. He said at Christmas that when he has enough he knows how he is going to go..He said he would go get 15 pounds of crawfish and that would do him in. Again I hope you have a great day. Pete

When I was young and at home with my parents, we didn't put up the Christmas decorations until Dec 23rd and they stayed up until Jan 12th. That's the day the wise men arrived at the manger. I think all of that has been lost with the commercialism of religious holidays. Almost forgot to wish you and John a HAPPY ANNIVERSARY.
You all have a great day and happy gardening. Bill Mitchell
