Nuthin', but some Cape May Scenes
I feel like I've got nuthin' to blog about.
Here's a picture of The Mainstay Inn, a Victorian B & B that we stayed at in Cape May, NJ a couple of years ago.
All these pictures are from that trip.
I did post for 31 days last month, does that count for anything?
Mister had a very very busy, stressful week this week. He moved his office and had a Board Meeting and was away overnight. All in the same week.
Speaking of Mister, guess what? He has agreed to grow out his beard. I don't think he has ever done this before.
He doesn't want to do it now. But I asked him to. So he started.....TODAY!
Our wedding anniversary is 3 days after Christmas. One year when we were budgeting, I asked him to shave his head, rather than leave the very short stubble that he usually keeps, for my anniversary gift.
And he did!
He is so much fun.
And I am so easily entertained. And I did suggest his current hairstyle years ago, that was basically shaving things down pretty short. And before that, I convinced him to keep his new goatee. So I think I know what I'm talking about!
I took a fall this weekend. Landed very hard on my hands and knees, out front. Mister rushed to my side. Chickie was inside, but I guess she heard it, so she rushed and put yoga pants on (backwards, in her hurry) to make sure I was okay.
Isn't that wonderful? I felt very cared for. Chickie and I have this thing that we always check on each other if we think the other fell or got hurt. Quite solicitous that way.
And Mister? Well, he is crazy about me, so he always wants to help me out. I am blessed.
I do have some new pictures to post. But I have to use the other laptop for that. I have 2 laptops, and if you added them together you would get 1 not-so-great computer.
Each laptop has about 10 minutes of battery time. Only one of them can communicate with our printer. Only one of them can upload pictures from my camera.
So I take pictures and load them onto the Compaq, and then sort into blog posts. The Compaq burns my leg (literally leaves marks. Laptop Leg is real) So I don't use that computer much.
The Gateway was resurrected by Chickie after a 2 year sabbatical, for me. Many "plug-ins are out of date", and it can't be updated.
But if you add the 2 together, you get one computer's worth of function.
So now you know my little secret.
And we are still touring Cape May!
Did you know....
...that I am crazy in love with my husband? We are approaching our 11th anniversary and because of God, our marriage is better and stronger than ever. We share an extravagant love, a covenant relationship, God's example to us of His relationship with us and how He loves us.
In recent months I have learned how to truly respect my husband, how to truly be kind to him, how to encourage, support and pray Scripture over him. I've been transformed and I am amazed.
A very godly woman commented to me on the love she sees in our marriage, and how I "look at him".
It's a process of transformation. It's a purifying of my heart. It's becoming the wife I always dreamed of being.
"I'm crazy for you", he whispers. He looks at me and I smile. He's holding my hand, as usual. Always holding my hand. We even watch TV that way. He loves my smile - it's a gift from God for me to give away, he says. And as I smile, he can't resist. He kisses me.
