Thirty-eight years tomorrow!

I am married to my best friend and tomorrow we will celebrate our thirty-eighth anniversary! Years ago I wondered if married couples who have been married a long time run out of things to talk about.( I have seen couples eating in restaurants not speaking to one another.) I have to say for us we never run out of things to talk about. We still have fun, too. This has been an interesting thirty-eight years with never a dull moment. We are a little grayer and a little heavier but still in love and that is the best thing!

My husband likes to buy me flowers and plants. I like getting them but I have a brown thumb when it comes to house plants. They do great outside in the summer but the minute I bring them in for the winter they start to die. Is it too much water? Not enough water? Not enough light? Who knows?

After Christmas last year he bought me a pointsettia plant. His comment was that it didn't cost much so it was okay if it died. Lol. It is still alive. It has a few less leaves than it did when he gave it to me but the amazing thing, to me anyway, is that it is blooming!

These aren't the best pictures. I took them with my phone but if you look closely you can see the tiny yellow flowers.

On the weaving front I am working on dish towels and scarves. No pictures just yet, though.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Your poinsettias are beautiful! Don't worry if they start to drop their leaves...they will sprout new ones! I have some that I've kept alive for a few years and they look great at Christmas! Happy Anniversary!
