We stopped at a flea market on the way home and I bought an enormous splatterware enameled roasting pan. I have one that I use for the holidays for turkeys or goose but it was getting old and losing its enamel inside. I couldn't find a large enough one in the stores so we were making do. The new one is huge, larger than the one we have and it's in almost perfect shape. It should give me years of roasting pleasure. Pk bought an old saw which is worth way more than what he paid for it so he was happy.
Pk and I are easing back into the gym. We have been the laziest people this summer and I don't regret a single moment. I only did 15 minutes on the elliptical machine and lessened my weights on the circuit weight machines and did fewer reps. The last time we went to the gym (2 weeks ago), I over did it and was sore as all get out for days. I'm trying not to do that again. It sure doesn't take the body much time to lose all the hard won ground.
I am going to find something funny to watch and knit some nice plain socks for a while. My brain is Monday-tired. I just need some diversion before bed.
And I wanted to say thanks for all the anniversary wishes. When people ask "how did you stay married for so long?", I'm not sure how to answer. Mostly it's just day to day. I don't stop to count the years, I just pay attention to the days and maybe that's the secret after all. Pay attention to the days and let the years take care of themselves. I only know that I like being married. I like my husband (as well as love him) and feel really lucky.
I know that it would be impossible to replace him. No one else even comes close so I guess I'll just have to take care of him and make him last.
