    Good morning Jays!

    Fresh loaf of crusty bread baking in the oven.
    Kind of exciting now, but late last night when I was sipping my 2nd glass of white wine, DS and DH mentioned we were very low on bread stuffs.
    My lips moved and said " I'll bake a loaf!, easy peasy, it'll be ready baked in the morning "
    I have NO memory ( cloudy at best ) of measuring and mixing the ball of dough, but there it was on the counter when I woke up covered over with cling wrap all puffed up.

    I'll call this sleepy time bread.




    2023 had better show some promise or else!

    When I happened to mention that I wanted summer back, 32C wasn't exactly what I had in mind. It made it really difficult to walk around rv dealers this afternoon. Meh...just looking for something a little larger, different lay-out...not in any hurry.

    Did anyone else catch Ford's appearance this afternoon wrt the nursing home situation?? OMGosh, he was holding back tears...I guess he imagined his Mom and Mom-in-law in those situations...just deplorable!
    However, bless their military hearts, but how could they have discovered all that in a week or so...I mean, no matter what happened before, wouldn't you be on your best behavior while they were there?
    They probably heard stories from the residents as well as their adult children. I'm glad my Mom got such good care here, from such a caring staff...I visited every day so I could keep an eye on things and of course visit with her. Well...I sure hope he does straighten out this whole disgusting disaster!! It's unbelievably sad!!!

    Well...like @walkonby , I'm drinking today...hahaha!!! Okay, it's my 2nd Caesar, but we were walking around in that heat!! What was your excuse last night, Walks? I'm open to any explanation... Good on ya wrt that bread, it must have been heavenly this morning!!
    @danger_dan , I'd love a tea party!!!! When will we all be able to visit with friends again? We're back to square 1 with out kids...physical distancing once again.
    @GoJays , I hope our *hitty day turned itself around! How sad to be sad on such a nice day.

    Our DD thinks she broke her toe last evening. Yep...leave her alone for a day, and poof! An accident! She was trying to move their outdoor fire-place herself and dropped it on her foot. Naturally she won't have it x-ray'd because they "don't do anything anyway" donchaknow. Grr. Our GS is taking care of her...even though she has to sparkle up their friend's trailer since she negotiated the purchase of another one for them in our park. Now they have to sell theirs. I hope she takes it easy.

    Okay!! I've babbled enough for one day!!

    Enjoy your evening, everyone and for heaven's sake, please stay safe!!!

    I just came across this and thought it was so perfect (except the first part, at least for me...never went in for that shmaltzy stuff) and so true...This. For 50 years and still going strong..



    He always pushes the grocery cart.

    (and when we get back to the truck, he always unlocks the doors immediately so that I can get in, and then proceeds to unload the groceries, while Iím sat in the truck with the seat warmers on. rain or shine - every time - this is our grocery game plan)

    Can I let you all in on a little secret?

    Itís taken me many years to appreciate being loved like this.

    You see, I spent (ie. wasted) a lot of time looking for all the ways in which love in shown in the movies, in the magazines, and on the commercials.

    Flowers.
    Chocolates.
    Romantic meals.
    Surprise getaways.

    And guess what?

    I was disappointed time. and time. and time again.

    All because I was looking for the ways that I was being told he should show his love -

    Instead of paying attention to how he actually does show his love.

    And when I eventually came to that realization, Friends?

    That was the relationship game changer.

    For he rarely buys flowers,

    But he calls me everyday when he gets off of work, to see if I need anything picked up.

    He never thinks of buying chocolate,

    But whenever he sees anything that resembles a slice of plant based, organic goodness, he always buys it for me - And is always so proud to surprise me with his latest grocery store find.

    He can only boil eggs and butter bread,

    So while I have never walked into a dining room with candles flickering and plates of gourmet goodness laid out - He wakes up every Sunday morning, puts on coffee, pours up my favourite mug, and passes it to me while Iím cozied up on the living room couch (and if my mug is in yesterdayís dirty dishes, heíll always wash it out. bless him).

    And while he cannot put together a travel itinerary to save his soul,

    He has sat in a theatre on Broadway with me to watch a musical. He has walked through Ernest Hemingwayís home with me. He has been through more museums and libraries in a lifetime than he cares to admit. And he has never complained about any of it. Not even once.

    And itís more than that. So much more than that.

    Heís gotten up in the middle of the night with a crying baby. If his restaurant order is better than mine, heíll always switch plates. He watches Sleepless in Seattle when he would rather be watching Jason Bourne (at least I think thatís his name). He knows my most favourite Ďlady productsí, and will run to the pharmacy to grab me them whenever needed (if that isnít love, I donít know what is).

    ...And, he will always, always push the grocery cart.

    You know, the more I think of it,

    The flowers, the chocolates, the romantic meals, and the surprise getaways?

    Thatís all just momentary anyway.

    The flowers die. The chocolate and meals get devoured. And the surprise getaways happen, and then theyíre over.

    But itís in the moments that you can depend on (over and over and over again), well, thatís where the love is found.

    The good love.

    The always love.

    Like your Ďmost coziest blanket on a fall dayí love.

    ...And itís THAT kindaí love that I want to walk through this life feeling.

    Donít search for the flowers, Ladies. Nor waste your time in want of the chocolates.

    Search for the one who will push your grocery cart.

    For thatís where the always kindaí love is ♡

    I was hesitating posting in case someone thinks " Hmmm, what on earth is she doing up at 4 a.m.? "
    Well napping does that, a cat nap here and there in the day means wide awake later on. So be it...not like there are schedules anymore.

    o.k. so first, @Lynn49 that post you made describing what real love is...I cannot agree more. The small everyday courtesies that I am spoiled enough to already have outshine any bouquet of flowers.
    Speaking of flowers! DH made his " I'm bored " rounds out to search for more annuals. He returned with bright pinks and mauve's ( Petunias? ) and violet coloured Alyssum.
    We were able to make up 6 large hanging baskets for the front.
    Then he " MacGuyvered " my solar tree which had somehow malfunctioned over the winter. I watched admiringly as he replaced the sun thingy from an older solar device and took a soldering iron to the whatchamacallit and VOILA! My tree is bright and lighted again.
    This heat!! Stifling is how it feels. I love that we have the lovely summertime rays finally, but show some control Mother Nature! @Newfiescreech so nice to see ya here!!
