HR is continuing his quirkily unorthodox tradition of giving me MULTIPLE birthday cards. It started on Saturday, continued Sunday and Monday, leading up to today, my actual birthday.
I find them all over the place: in my daily planner, in the front of the tv, even next to the toilet (tmi?).
I used to think it was odd to get more than one bday card from the same person, but now I look forward to Robert’s card extravaganza.
Robert and I are off to a delicious new year …
How? By charcutering, of course! Dinner tonight …
My husband and my grandtwins Matthew and Madison back in 2015.
Over the weekend, we noticed Robert’s older cat Boopers was having difficulty breathing.
And Sunday, Christmas Day, he was worse.
So Monday morn, HR dropped Boopers off at the vet. We went for breakfast and then got the call that Boopers was probably not going to make it much longer. Robert was shocked. We headed quickly back to the vet, only to be told the moment we walked in that Boopers was crashing. And then, that he had passed away.
Robert got to hold his beloved kitty one final time.
A few Boopers pics from the past.
With brother Benny …
A blog category of pics I’ve taken of HR (Hubby Robert) and … well, just about anything.
Robert and … his wings.
Here’s our newest ornament we bought on our fun-filled weekend trip to see the Atlanta Ballet’s “ The Nutcracker.”
(Please notice HR’s new Christmas tree pants. But don’t be upset; he still has his Santa pants.)
Signed, Sealed and Delivered
HR and me, Wedding Day, Dec. 9, 2016
For this blog category, “Countdown to Christmas: Images of Peace,” each day between December 1 and 25, I share some of our photography that invites rest, peace, tranquility and love.
A Piece of Pizza Peace
The other night Robert made perhaps his very best pizza ever on his newish and he’s-so-proud-of-it pizza stone.
1. Our interracial ornaments!
2. The beautiful little boutique coffee shop that just opened across the street from us in the old Trustees Garden area of Savannah.
3. The joy and privilege of breathing in and breathing out … all the time!
4. Cute-collared holiday doggie near us.
5. Democracy winning …
May you have a winning weekend ahead!
