IT'S OUR 50TH ! ! !

Today is our 50th wedding anniversary!  Hard to believe we ever made it this far, as it only seems like yesterday.

We got married in Boise, Idaho on December 30, 1962 and have moved about a few times from Boise to Casper, Wyoming - to Spokane, Washington - to Sequim, Washington - to Graham, Washington and just this past Fall to Maricopa, Arizona.

We both retired in 1999 and I think it's after that when you find out how much love and respect you have for each other.  After your kids are grown and gone, your work career is over, and you just have each other around (all the time!) you really learn to appreciate each other.   I think I'm really blessed to have such a great hubby - and he says maybe we can make it another 20 years.   We'll see if our health holds out that long.

He brought me these dozen roses:
We drove north to Fort McDowell - lovely day for a drive, paid our dues at the casino, had a wonderful dinner.  I had liver and onions, which I usually only have once or twice a year, as hubby can't stand the smell of me cooking it at home!

I've been working on these fingerless mitts yesterday and today:

They are Malabrigo Hand Thingies and I'm loving the "slip stitch" design just starting to show up in the upper part of this photo.  I'd like to finish them tomorrow.  They seem like they might be too small for my hands, so may be gifted to one of my granddaughters, and I'll try them again on larger needles.

Happy New Year to my friends and family!!
