Casanova and Me

Yesterday, I spent the morning in Ft Worth, Texas.

I was at the Kimbell Museum of ART

viewing the Casanova exhibit.

Casanova! Really.

I truly did not expect much,

but  had a great time….

there were paintings, clothing of the period,

furniture and jewelry.

I loved it.

I was perhaps the only person there…

I did not expect to have such a good time alone.

But it was wonderful.

Oh wait, it got better…..

Larry made me breakfast for dinner.

I believe that I have my own Casanova, right here at The Cottage..

Love you.

Anniversary

Larry and I have been married, 40 years today.

I love My Larry. I love my life.

But, this has been the worst year of my life.

I thank  God every day, that Larry is my partner.

We can handle anything together.

Good or bad,

Larry has a way of helping me accept life

as we journey through.

Last Sunday, we were lucky enough

to visit the church where we were marred 40 years ago.

Richmond, VA~1977

It feels like yesterday.

Where has the time gone?

Happy Anniversary Larry.

Love you more than candy.

Calling Tim Gunn!

Yesterday was a pip.

I seemed to struggle with everything , all day long.

But today, I woke up with an amazing sense of calm.

I came into the studio and grabbed my camera,

hell bent on sharing the morning here, on ze blog

The coat I designed is completely finished.

Call Tim Gunn!

This morning, when I checked the patio….

The armadillo {who lives under our deck} has been dining on our begonias.

They look gross now and I will replace the plants

with something armadillos do not eat.

What don’t armadillos eat?

***

Talking about treats….

I found three of my favorite caramels on the kitchen counter.

***

I think that it might be time to sit down for a moment

and have a cup of tea.. wish you where here.

***

I have a yoga class this morning…

and

then a dinner date with My Larry tonight.

{ I wonder where he will take me?}

Have a lovely day.

Love you more than candy.

Sunday Dinner and Movie

Yesterday was Sunday Dinner and a movie.

Chicken thighs and rice with wine sauce and green peas.

Dessert was my creation,

little lemon pies with blueberries and whipped cream.

Pie crust in ramekins.

{baked early for convenience}

***

Lemon pudding

Blueberries on top of pudding.

Whipped cream…..

Oh, and our movie was Indiscreet.

I love this movie, so much

because I would love to live in the movie apartment

and  wear Ingrid Bergman’s clothes…..

In essence, this movie totally takes me away.

Isn’t that what a movie should do?

****

Larry and I had the best weekend.

It was filled with special family moments and many smiles.

Secret: I am kind of glad that it is Monday.

I love you more than candy.

More Than Candy

Last night, the family met for dinner at Pedro’s restaurant.

I cannot tell you how nice it was to celebrate this time

in my life with the people dearest to me.

***

We  all have things that happen in our lives,

That is just the way things are.

Perhaps we can try to think

of what the other person

might be going through.

Life is wonderful. Lets share our joy.

Love you more than candy.
