It’s been hotter this week than it has been all summer. We’ve had to crank up (down?) the AC all week so we don’t sweat all day. Thank goodness today we had a good downpour to clear all the humidity, it’s suppose to be beautiful this weekend. Our deck (above photo) was built with the slats right next to each other – the builders had apparently never put together a deck before – so it holds water like crazy each time the rain comes down heavy. Like a shallow swimming pool full of leaves.
Jeremy and I took each other out to dinner last night for our combined birthday celebration. We often get into fights about our birthdays. I don’t like to celebrate birthdays and Jeremy does like celebrating, but since Jeremy’s birthday is a week before mine and usually goes uncelebrated, then when mine rolls around seven days later, Jeremy’s a little grumpy at me for not celebrating his birthday and then he’s grumpy when he’s trying to figure out how to celebrate mine. We’ve been together for almost 20 years now and this argument at least 15 times. But I think we’ve figured it out now – basically we have to start talking about our birthdays in July and come up with a plan that is satisfactory to both parties. So this dinner was two months in the planning.
Jeremy turned 45 and I’m turning 41. I enjoy so much growing old together. So lucky to have found each other.
