49 years tomorrow

The weather was nothing like this when we got married all those years ago. It was truly a beautiful day. In the afternoon, you could set outside and enjoy the sunshine. It was that way all the time we were gone. We love the fall of the year. We want to make it next year to our 50th and we will have a celebration one way or the other.
A fire in the fireplace would have felt good tonight after I came home from the nursing home. Here it is the 18th of October and the weather has turned cold. It was really windy, raining and cold.There was snow just two hours away from us. I am not ready for that this early. I know the weather has been weird this year everywhere and the time is flying. I don't know where the month of September has gone let alone this month is almost gone to. 
I am looking forward to the 2nd week of November not only the election will be over with, but our oldest is coming home so he can cast his vote and take back somethings with him. He will be here for a few days  and those  days will fly to fast while he is here.  It is always so much better when you see them in person and you can give them a hug or vice versa. I know there are three boys anxious to see their uncle. One is marking the new Lego catalog with what he is wanting his uncle to get him. Of course, they are always building something.
Hubby has been progressing, but has a ways to go. We aren't rushing anything. Just taking it one day at a time. I go see him in the evening about a hour during the week and a little longer during the weekend. I have been getting some much needed rest that is why he is spending time in the nursing home so that I can. 
I hope you all have been having a wonderful week. I am ready for the weekend. Sleeping late on Saturday and Sunday, Enjoying every minute of it. Take care

Oh Shirley, I am so pleased your hubby is doing well and getting the attention he needs.....while you can visit and then get the rest you so can't afford to get run down!!!

Congrats on the 49th, what a victory and good reason to celebrate!!! I agree, this Fall has been so beautiful so far, the colors are amazing and the sunsets divine...our day got windy too and rain on the way tonight. No, no, keep that white stuff away until much later!!!

Take care, I always enjoy your visits.....hugs...cleo

I'm so glad your husband is on the mend, but also just as glad that you're taking time to rest and nurture yourself -- so essential for a caregiver, so rarely done.

Look after yourself and Happy Anniversay!
Make yourself a nice cosy fire to sit by and ponder.

Good to hear that your hubby is doing a little better. Yes, you have to take care of yourself.
Happy Anniversary. Hope you can do something little to celebrate. Next year will be a better year and you can have a big celebration. Glad your son is coming home.
I know what you mean about the weeks flying by. Where does time go.

Happy Anniversary, Shirley! 49 years is a long time! :)

So glad to hear your son is coming for a visit! I know you must be happy about that. And I am glad to hear you are getting to sleep a little later, you need the rest! Winter will be here soon and it will take more effort and energy to come and go in the cold and snow. I think we take that for granted in the summer. It's been cold here, too.

I hope you have a great weekend! :)
