We're still in holiday mode at the Zannini ranch. Today is Greg's birthday--a milestone birthday to boot.
His beard might be snowy white but to me he'll always be the 24-year old hunk showing off at the pool.
We've been through so much and it went by in the blink of an eye. We spent the last fifteen years as a long-distance couple--the most grueling fifteen years of my life. If that doesn't test you, nothing will.
It's been seven months since he retired and I'm still giddy knowing I wake up to him every day.
We usually celebrate birthdays by letting the guest of honor decide that day's events. He hasn't mentioned what he wants to do yet. Probably a movie, and dinner at a nice restaurant.
Independence Day 2015 was great! Greg barbequed. I made the side dishes and an awesome blackberry cobbler. I have to say it was awesome because I always mess up the pastry, but this time it came out absolutely perfect, flaky and delicious. I was shocked! The only thing I did differently this time was chill all my implements and ingredients.
Yesterday, we were weeding the garden and came across this.
These are baby bunnies in the middle of what used to be my snow pea bed. I couldn't bear to disturb them so I left the bed as is. Hopefully, they'll be weaned in a few weeks and move on.
So what do you like to do on your birthday? Is there anything special you wish someone would do for you?
I'd be happy if someone cleaned my house and fed the animals. I don't know what it's like to sleep in late. :grin: (I so wish I was joking.)
