It's Our Anniversary!!

Well, I'm sure you've all given up on me and gone somewhere else to read a blog that actually has something new on it!!

I'm over my virus and feeling 100% again so that's good. The bad news is I haven't been doing any art....well, that isn't true....I haven't done anything worth showing to you!! And I have a deadline looming straight ahead and nothing ready for it!

HB was home over the past weekend and then left again. He will return for the 4th of July weekend....where has this year gone? The 4th of July is just around the corner and I was just getting around to thinking about Valentine's Day!! OK, I'm not really that far behind but it does seem as if the year is flying by.


Today is the 18th anniversary of when HB and I met....and it's also our 13th wedding anniversary.

We met through my landlady at the time. She was a real character....an 80 year old Cajun woman from Louisiana, transplanted to California, and managing the apartments where I lived at the time. Every afternoon she walked across the street to a Mexican restaurant and had a drink. They all knew her there....she told great stories and was a bit of entertainment for the place. But if you want to read the whole story of how I met HB it's here along with a photo of us before gray hair!!

Happy Anniversary HB!!


  1. Happy Anniversary!!!!

  6. Happy Anniversary - time sure flies, doesn't it? We'll have our 19th anniversary in November and it seems like yesterday...until I look in the mirror

  7. So glad to hear you're feeling much better, Janet!
    Boy, the year really is flying by in some ways, and yet in other ways, these hot days have just dragged on...it's hard to feel creative when it's been so hot. Glad it's finally starting to cool back down some - I really need to do some creating too.
    Happy Anniversary to you and HB!

  8. Congratulations on your anniversary. Don't worry about it, if you've been ill it doesn't motivate. We all go through phases with writing blogs and reading blogs, we get busy and don't read a blog for a while and then I cruise round and catch up :)

  9. Happy Anniversary!

    Lovely Love Story!

    It's summer and I am sure there is alot of days that blogland will not be as active...summertime is a busy time for my family. Arney is out in the garden staking tomato plants. I am getting ready to call Hans my hairdresser, it's cutting time.
