A Happy Day

He’s my chef.
He’s my gardener.
He’s my tax man and financial advisor.
He’s my personal jester.
He’s my shoulder to cry on.
He’s my teacher.
He’s my student.
Best of all, he’s my husband.

Happy birthday, my little May Basket.

A most adorable couple are we.

My Boyfriend

The jacket.  As far as I know the jacket has been around for about thirty-five years.  It first belonged to Husby, and now it belongs to me.

The jacket has belonged to me for a long time.  Just how long I don’t know for sure, but at least fifteen years.  Maybe longer.  I wear the jacket a lot.  To the day job, running errands, to social events.  I always wanted a jacket like this but never had one growing up or in my young adulthood.

Husby said I could wear the jacket and I’ve been wearing it ever since.  It’s like when your boyfriend in high school lets you wear his letter jacket…only I get to wear my boyfriend’s jacket forever.

Happy birthday to my ever-lasting boyfriend.

Married life can get pretty dull sometimes…for some people.  I’m one of the lucky ones; my husband keeps me entertained nearly every minute I’m with him.

The other day Husby was gracious enough to allow me to record one of his talents, a talent I didn’t even know he had!  I don’t think he knew he had the talent either, so I guess this makes him kind of an idiot savant?  With that, I present the magnificent performance of Husby, and his musical clothespins.

Here’s to a week of finding amusement in the little things.

P.S.  Husby refuses compensation for his performances, but he does read the blog.  If you have any words of praise, please feel free to leave them in the comments.

Happy Groundhog Day

February 2nd is Groundhog Day.  Every year.  It rolls around like Halloween, Christmas, birthdays…same date every year.  And every year I forget about it.

Husby never forgets it though, and for the past very many years he has given me a card to mark the “holiday.”  This is what I woke up to this morning:

The best thing about the Groundhog Day cards from Husby is that they’re handmade.  He does the artwork and the touching sentiments.  I was stunned to see a 3D card this year.

What’s more exciting than a 3D groundhog made by your husband?!

I can just picture him, sitting in his office, cutting out and putting together a paper groundhog, and thinking up a springtime verse to go with him.

What a poet!

I was feeling a little blue the past couple of days, but finding this fun Groundhog Day sentiment waiting for me first thing in the morning cheered me up a lot.  I’m glad I forget about Groundhog Day because the card is that much more meaningful and fun when I don’t expect it.

In my part of the world I’m pretty sure the groundhog saw his shadow; it’s a bright, sunny day in Minnesota.  Happy Groundhog Day everyone, and may your springtime be right around the corner.
