Oh dear, Oh dear !!!!

How terrible is it when both Hubby and I "forgot" it was our wedding anniversary today.  I guess after 41 years we have become - what??? comfortable? complacent?  Forgetful? Or we didnt write it in our diaries,on the calendar, on our phones, which is the normal way to be reminded.

 Hubby had thought about us going to see a movie tonight, just because, but with it being so wet he decided to wait till another night.  Then I just looked at the date for the first time today, and realised  - so we should have braved the rain and gone after all.  Oh well, we definitely are taking a "rain check" on that one.

So instead, he has been having his nightly Pa nap in front of the tv, while I have been working on a project using a small pink charm pack I was given for Christmas.
There is some embroidery, some piecing, hexie flowers, and the zips are yet to be added.  Hopefully it will all come together to make a useful item.  (Making hexie flowers was a lovely way to spend the evening anyway.)

Today, I have also been working on this quilt for Caring with Quilts.  The sashings are now on, and the blocks are sewn together, now comes the quilting. That will take me a few days to do.


Oh, and we are having some chocolate to celebrate,  (too late for some wine! - after all it is only 1 hour till "tomorrow".)


Sammy rang me today to say he had received his art folder birthday gift.
This one:
     
 He said he liked it.  He has written on (well, my son said scribbled) quite a few pages already - but that is what you would expect a 4 year old to do isnt it.

We forget our wedding anniversary as well, but we never forget the "day we met" anniversary. Your hexie flowers look pretty, certainly a nice way to spend an evening putting them together.

Do you know what... I actually remembered your anniversary yesterday! Now that's rare. Not that I thought to remind you... ooops! What movie were you thinking of seeing? And feel free to send the rain to us.

I love your hexie flowers, theyre so pretty!

I think getting to be cozy with each other is the best part about being a couple. Sounds like you both spent the evening doing what you enjoy ;o) Gorgeous little hexie flowers... they look tiny! Have fun when you do celebrate...:o)

It is getting worse - when more years accumulate - I am talking or my own experience. This year - the 50th - we did not forget!!! -- Marilyn, am I right - is there your daughter among the "commenters" ??
