Mr. Husband and I went to a nice
restaurant in our small town for
Bright Monday dinner.
Bright Monday Mr. Husband had off from work
and we rested, did housing paperwork things...
I did a grocery run to get Paschal things for later
(including a junior's cheesecake, ice cream and
a pizza crust and toppings for a later dinner).
We enjoyed our butter!
On our honeymoon a waiter commented to us:
everything is better with butter
and this has become part of our family,
as we build traditions, tell stories and remember.
We enjoyed this restaurant many times,
though they are slowly changing things in ways
we are not as happy with...
but still, many festive meals there and
it will not be a place we go to as much
once we move in a month's time.
So it was a meal we savoured.
Mr. Husband got the salad with goat cheese,
tomato, endive, plump golden raisins and a
I had the Polenta with Red Pepper Coulis,
Fresh Basil and Three Cheese Sauce;
warm, savory and delightful!
Chicken with wilted greens, potato and natural jus.
Key Lime Pie for dessert.
Lots of good memories in this place.
we were also celebrating this anniversary.
We walked home a different way and
enjoyed seeing the beauty of the small town we are leaving.
I will really miss all the beauty.
Where we are moving to is good,
but not the same.
I really appreciated Mr. Husband saying that
even though we are gaining more than losing
in this move, there is always loss with change.
Just acknowledging this was helpful for me.
We hope to close in just under 2 weeks time.
I know it will help to see the condo we are moving to,
as it will revitalize my excitement and joy
in moving to our new home.
I am glad we have time to enjoy the Bright Week
and have a little more special before this
place is packed up for the move.
God is so merciful to us.
The paschal coffee table!
Gorgeous linen cloth from a dear friend for Christmas,
who once we move I will be in walking distance to!
Coasters from a dear Ottawa friend.
Eggs I got last year from here.
Pear candles and tray are wedding gifts...
I am getting done slowly with this wonderful book
It is so deeply life-giving.....
As far as I ever got on Mr. Husband's sock.
I need different needles; these size one are too
short and I want longer.
I got three GK Chesterton books for Mr. Husband
The high light is his book,
the everlasting man.
