Boy, I wish I had a Camera!
Tonight I surprised my darling with one of his favorite dinners. It is not even comprehensible to me the things we have been through in the last 9 months, and they just keep coming. We were talking the other day about how we'll just have to find something to celebrate in the midst of it because there is no end in sight! He has been spoiling me lately, bringing me little surprises and doing things for me to make up for the stress we're living through, and I wanted to give him something in return.
So to bless him, I made meatloaf, mashed potatoes with the jackets on, corn roasted in the oven (because once you've had roasted corn, boiled can't compare!) and I planned it just right that when we were sitting down, I took a dutch apple pie from the oven and that made it the perfect temperature for a la mode (I tried it once with hot pie and it ended up melting the ice cream too fast and it was a mess). Nothing from a box- all homemade. Then while we were watching our weekly show together, I gave him a slice of pumpkin pie and a rootbeer float. As I am no longer on that hay wagon with him, I have to skip many of the treats, but just seeing his face was a treat for me! I love that man, and if everything (literally! I could write you a list) around me has to break or fall apart or go wrog, I can't imagne ANYONE else I would rather go through it with.
