I looked at the date on my last post and could not believe how long it has been. I have gotten a little behind on blogging lately. John has been out of town a good bit for his job and I have been trying to keep everything together here at home. With school to teach, animals to feed, and kids to taxi there is not much time for anything else. I always miss him so much when he is gone.
He has been building a Family Dollar store in Hurlock, Maryland, near the Chesapeake Bay. I had the opportunity to travel with him there a couple of weeks ago and loved the area. It has some of the most beautiful farmland that I have ever seen. Another thing about the area that I noticed was the many places that sold Adirondack chairs. These stood out to me because I have been looking for some new chairs for our pier. We have had the old ones since we got married and they have seen better days. Unfortunately, we had to hurry home and did not get to stop to check the prices.
Imagine my surprise when John came home last Thursday with a something special for me. (Now, he is not the most romantic man in the world, but every once in a while he does something that totally catches me off guard.) It was about 9:30 Thursday evening when he pulled into the drive from the long trip. He called me outside to show me something....two beautiful chairs and a table! He said that it was a gift to celebrate the anniversary of our first kiss. Can you believe that? He always remembers that date. Isn't that sweet?
He set them off of the truck in the side yard.
They are still there today. It is the perfect place to see the pond and to view the moon and the stars.
I don't think that I want to move them to the pier. What do you think?
Maybe we need to purchase two more.
Even the kitty likes them exactly where they are.
Can't you just imagine cool fall nights with a blanket and a glass of wine under the light of a full moon?
Now, if we can just get rid of the ninety degree days here in North Carolina, maybe I won't have to imagine.
I thank God everyday for my wonderful husband! He is always full of surprises.
