This Is Where I Ended Up
Posted by terrepruitt on March 21, 2015
So here it is again, the day I consider to be the first day of spring. Yes, I am a bit off from tradition, but this is the day of new beginnings for me seventeen years ago. As I mentioned two years ago on this date, it is our wedding anniversary. Pretty exciting. Although this year he is sick and I am very grumpy about it! I despise being sick. And I have too much to do to be sick. And I am thinking I am getting sick because I am sooooo grumpy. Argh. All I can think about is being sick for the very first Nia Event I am producing and then I get even more grumpy. Argh. We didn’t do anything for our anniversary because he is sick and I don’t want to get sick. So we did nothing. I didn’t even cook a special dinner because I didn’t think he would enjoy it very much because he is sick. So . . . Happy Anniversary to us.
Good thing, I know he will be around a month or so from now because that is when we will probably finally have time to celebrate. My dinner plan was a roast. I don’t think I have ever cooked a roast. If I have, it has been so long I don’t remember how I did it. What are your favorite recipes? Would you share? It would be nice to make him a really nice, super yummy roast when he can taste. I think our roasts are in the 2.5 to 3 pound range.
I did go outside in the yard today and cut these beauties. My favorite rose bush has at least a dozen buds on it so next week I will have a house full of flowers. That is awesome. Our yard smells like roses. And when we open the door the house smells like roses. So next week, when I cut them and bring them all in the house will smell like roses. Yay!
I have actually started typing three different posts and this is where I ended up. I came up with two different ideas, but I kept coming back to this. The roses are beautiful and they smell great. I am happy to have them and my hubby. I am lucky to have both.
Since I am not a gardener I do marvel at the fact that my rose bush looks like it is dead and it will never come back then without me doing anything and almost (almost but not quite) without me noticing there are at least a dozen buds on it. I do tend to notice because, like I said, it looks dead so I look at it with sorrow. Then I forget about it for a day or two and then when I look at it again, it seems to be fine. After I trimmed off the dead or dying flowers today there is still a lot of buds. Awesome.
Happy Anniversary, Hubby! Here’s to your roast we have yet to have!
So what did you do (yesterday) on the first day of Spring? What did you do today?
