I always think it is strange how memories have no time frame to them. Whether it happened yesterday or last month or decades ago, the memory remains the same and takes no account of time having past by.
In some ways fifty years sounds like a long time, but in other ways it is no time at all. That is how I am feeling today, as it was fifty years ago that I first met my husband.
We met on a Blind Date, organized by my girlfriend as I never had a partner to attend a 21st birthday party. I am so glad she set us up together!
It was the start of a relationship that lasted nearly forty-seven years and left me with multiple happy memories, and gratitude that I was able to meet such a wonderful man and become his wife for so many years.

It has been a bit of a hectic week this week and I have spent very little time on my computer. My apologies for not visiting anyone's blog.
One of my brothers had a triple bypass heart operation that never went as smoothly as was expected. He is on the road to recovery now and hopefully will soon be able to leave ICU and head into a cardiac ward. It is always a major concern when a loved one becomes ill, and the longer I live the more it seems to happen.

Shopping has gone crazy this week. Everywhere is full of Black Friday Week sales, Christmas is looming, the easing of covid restrictions means more places are open for business, and next week there is the threat of unvaccinated people with no ‘pass’ being not able to go to many places. So it seems that this week, every man and his dog (as the saying goes!), has been in town.
I still went shopping though.
I bought a new floor mop and bucket, and a yard broom, as well as a decorative box to hold my ironing while it waits patiently for me to get to do it.
But my happiest purchases have been some new pelargoniums. Five, in fact.
Harmony has pink flowers with a white centre, Really Red is red, Vancouver Centennial has pretty leaves, Lady Plymouth has rose scented leaves, and Ginger has ginger-scented leaves and pretty flowers.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend,
