Reg and I are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary today. Apart. It is a sad one. Reg is in Nova Scotia because his Dad passed away.
On our wedding night I remember having rosemary chicken for dinner with an edible flower salad on the side. They sent us the wrong cake. It was supposed to be a three tiered heart-shape cake and I just laughed when I saw that it was three circles. The frosting matched my bouquet so they got that right.
Reg’s dad taught me a lot about the power of being someone who makes something yourself. He was a master cabinetmaker and could literally make anything. When his daughter was giving birth he had to stay home and babysit her first born and he made a canoe while he waited. Seriously. He made a canoe! When I get out my tools for making food or jewelry, I will think of him
But I am taking today off. Going to treat myself a bit like royalty and look forward to Reg’s return in a few days.
