27 Years Ago Today.........................

We were wed!

Through thick and thin, we muddled through
the good times and the bad...

We're going out to dinner tonight
to celebrate.

"...and they lived happily ever after."

Thank goodness, God threw a switch on our heat and humidity and September has gifted us with cooler temps, low humidity, ……a bonus for sleeping with the windows open.

The blogging inspiration fairies abandoned me in August, which brought unexpected health and other problems with our pets, family, and two of my dearest friends. I've been shell-shocked and bereft until recently, when things are finally starting to look up.

And although we have not had weather as bad as Mary or Jayne have experienced, between the heat and my neglect this summer, our garden has not been the garden of which I'm usually so proud.

Being a gal who is descended from strong stock, determined to set aside the negatives and let nature do some healing - I worked outside in our gardens weeding and mulching, and worked on our waterfall fountain/pond. The sound of the waterfall does the trick. Nature heals.

This month we are celebrating our 27th anniversary. We gifted each other with bright red Kayaks and we're looking forward to spending more time out on the lake enjoying nature.

August did bring one very nice trip - a week in Florida with our granddaughter. She taught me how to text message, how to download and maniupulate files on an MP3 player, as well as some very cool sudoku tips. We enjoyed the beach, collecting shells, swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, visits to the Mall and bookstore. A trip to Mote Aquarium on Longboat Key to see how dolphins and sea turtles are rehabilitated was one of the highlights of our time together.

I'm trusting that during September, things will continue to stay positive for everyone. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and I am so very thankful for answered prayers.
