A nice morning even though there is a little smoke lingering. It is cooler than it’s been. The week ahead looks to be in the low ’90’s so warm but not unusual for this time of year.
This week I have no appts so I may plan on doing some painting. The kitchen cabinets need a touch-up and I have the paint for that. I may plan to go down to Roseville to the Benjamin Moore store to get the white. I’d like to get the front room painted and maybe the kitchen. Having the same color makes it easy to do and repainting is mostly a breeze. ( well, sort of, as I can’t do the ceilings but I can paint the walls.
This week Flylady has 2 zones. The living room and then the entryway. Yesterday, I wrangled the couch covers off and washed them. My daughter put most of it back on as my hands have trouble stretching the main cover. ( I guess an arthritic thing going on). The entryways need sweeping and a general tidy up. So I’ll plan on that later in the week.
B took a huge load to the local garbage transfer station and that was great to get rid of stuff that was just hanging around like old fencing. I asked him to load the old van with the thrift store stuff and I can do that this week too. We have a digital piano that needs to go and it is too big to fit in my VW.
Here are the two ‘old’ ones celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Hard to believe it’s been 50 years. Lots of laughter, fun, some tears but not too many and lots of great adventures. I guess getting married at 18 and 20 worked out for us but I’m guessing we are the exception.

Wow, 50 years, CONGRATULATIONS! Wishing you many more happy years together.
Well, thank you….we’re probably on the downhill side now:) ha….
Thank You!! it’s been a long strange trip( as the Grateful dead said)…
50 years! Congratulations!
That is quite an accomplishment…you guys were so young.
Wishing you many happy years to come.
We were so young but maybe that’s why we made it because we were quite determined.:)
That is such a lovely photo!
Not many couples make it that long! congratulations.
I too wish you two a hearty congratulations. Is this the first time I have seen you photo?
No, I’ve had pictures before from camping and such but maybe because it’s an anniversary !!!
Hello.Félicitations from France.I discover your blog not so long ago and now I can put a face on your words.Sorry for my poor English.I hope that it is correct.CatherinefromFrance.
Bonjour Catherine!!! I will try and post a few more pictures!! I take a terrible photo so I don’t like to do it often.
B has a fine head of hair! (You know in the UK you can get a card from the queen on your 50th – I got one for my parents…they are snobs so the card went down a treat! Don’t bother with our cast-off royal now living in a mansion in your state off his income from his father – he’s not respected over here anymore).
Well, I didn’t know that!!! Yes, he’s always had great hair. Even now post-transplant it’s still curly and busy. I’ve been bugging him to get a hair cut but I think he likes it:)….
