10th Anniversary


Yesterday was our 10th wedding anniversary. Saturday evening we took advantage of DC Restaurant Week and had a fantastic dinner at Vidalia. On Sunday we went to the International Motorcycle Show in DC. D wanted to get a new pair of custom ear plugs, then we wandered around to check out the people, bikes, and vendors. D bought me flowers, a card, and an engraved bracelet; we still have some chocolate covered strawberries to enjoy.

So it was a very nice weekend, especially considering the fact that just a few days before both of us were in bed sick with the flu.

03/18/11 Hints of Spring


While it may not technically be spring yet the weather here has its own agenda. Sunny and 65° today, 75° for tomorrow…I’m really looking forward to opening windows and getting some fresh air in the house.

I like flowers in general but am particularly fond of spring bulbs: tulips, daffodils, crocuses, hyacinths, etc. D and I went out to lunch yesterday, and on the drive home it was such a nice surprise to see daffodils in bloom!

Happy St Patrick’s Day!
