For My Love
My Darling Husband,
Sorry to make this love letter public, but there just doesn't seem a better way to be efficient and effective and get it done. You and I both know we have to share everything with our children eventually anyway, so I thought this might save us both some time.
First: Gosh, I miss you.
Ty and I watched Conference today and the entire time I was thinking about what you were doing. I know it was being DVRed for you, but it is magical when we watch it together, or at the very least, at the same time. I like to discuss the messages with you, and I really missed that today.
Second: Fall is in the air.
There were two of the dragon flies but one left before he was in focus. I never tire of the amazing things I am seeing. Right in our yard, everyday things, they just amaze me.
Although the temps are still in the 80's it feels like fall. The whole angle of the sun thing. You remember that. And the shade is really much cooler than when I stand in the sun. Tomorrow is supposed to be our last warm day for about a week. Rain and cooler temps are in the forecast for the week day. I am planning on one day of baking. I think I will grind wheat and make bread, and a homemade soup. I wish you could be here with me to share it.
Third: Halloween is coming.
I used the large post you made to decorate the porch. And the welcome sign you carved. And the wooden vase. I had picked some wheat when we picked corn with Ashley, and that is there, too. The pumpkins are the Michael's special that I have had for years, but today I bought a real one at the Farmers Market. I only paid $2.50 for it. Oh, I think it is still in the back of my car. I have to get that out and add it to the "artistically placed plastic" ones.
Fifth: Connie and I went to the garden.
Connie and I went after conference. We dug red potatoes, carrots, onions, picked beans, cucumbers, and spaghetti squash. They are so good to share the produce with us. So for dinner I made a salad that was the best I have eaten in years. You can't buy produce from a store, not organic, or any produce that tastes like fresh picked. Tyia made Turkey enchiladas so we ate like royalty. We invited Dad over for dinner but we were late calling him, as he had gone out to eat earlier. So, we invited him to join us tomorrow. We invited Reggie to come, too. I hope he brings her.
I mailed the FedEx package today. I hope Monday is the end of all the paper work.
I still haven't heard anything from the City regarding the meeting Norman and I had with the City Council President and the Engineer. We expressed our willingness to attend the City Council Meeting next Thursday, but they seemed to think the issues would be resolved before then. I sure hope so.
Eighth: I miss you.
I need to make some decisions, just little ones, like,..... where should I put some Halloween decorations in the house. I need to bounce it off you and you aren't here. Where do you think you would want some? On the fireplace mantel, and the dining room table? Any in the main bathroom, or is that tacky? How would you feel about spiders (I mean "stickem's") going down the stairs? It's our downstairs, so the resident down there shouldn't have a vote, right? I think you should be here and help me make these pressing decisions.
Ninth: Where do I get the car washed?
The car really looks bad. I thought I would get it done this past week, but it never made it to the top of the list. It is supposed to rain next week, so I think I won't put it in the garage and just let mother nature wash it for free. How does that sound to you?
Tenth: I really really miss you.
Our bed is getting bigger every night you aren't with me. It is big and lonely. So I am letting the dogs take turns to keep me company. Last night I had Ivy and Oz. Oz wouldn't go downstairs. It was weird. I think he wanted to be sure Ivy was okay. Which, she is. She is putting weight on her foot today and seems fine. We dodged a bullet on that one, I think. The bad thing about letting the dogs up on the bed is.....sand. Remember the sand we got for the lawn..well.....yeah.....the bed is a little gritty. Maybe it is not smart to tell you about this stuff...but I just want to share my life with ya. I don't want you to miss a thing... Isn't that the name of a song? Who sings it? I thought you would know that....hummmm. "I don't want to miss a thing" hummming...humming....
