Last night, we brewed decaf coffee and heated up some milk.
We added a couple chocolates to our saucers and headed out to the back yard.
Truthfully, I'd been looking forward to it all day.
As daylight slipped away, we sat in our lounge chairs and watched the hummingbirds on the feeder. We talked about our days and about what we'd do tomorrow. We made a few plans and talked through a solution to something that had bothered me all afternoon. I was reminded of something I'd read awhile back-
"This was the cream of marriage, this nightly turning out of the day's pocketful of memories, this deft, habitual sharing of two pairs of eyes, two pairs of ears."
This was the cream of marriage- I couldn't have said it better.
The weekend's almost here and we're wavering between having some down time or tackling a big project- I'll let you know which one wins out!
