We have been married for 32 years.  We still want to please one another.  We give gifts.  I am not sure that we always know the right gift to give, but how wonderful that we want to give to one another.

The Bearded One gives me flowers.  Extravagantly.

Today, he disappeared for a time.  Returned.  Later, disappeared again and returned with

Flowers!  Beautiful, extravagant flowers.

I, give home and food.  Tonight, we had Okra Gumbo with Chickpeas and Kidney Beans adapted from a recipe from Post Punk Kitchen  but I added some small hot peppers from our garden just because they were there and used cannelli beans instead of red kidney beans just because it was what was available.  Still delicious.




Good to be loved.
