My husband got back into town Friday night! It is so good to have him home. I know he is glad to be home because I tried to get him to relax on Saturday (he had just driven from the coast of Georgia in a day and a half!) but he was raring to go on the house! I think we had about a couple hours of laziness before we got to work. It is so much fun to see him this excited about the house. I have to remember that he only had a week in the house before he left, so this is all still new to him.
He brought me back a wonderful treat from Savannah, Old Bay Peanuts, peanuts seasoned with Old Bay Crab Seasoning. Last time he was down there I got to visit and found these peanuts in a shop in Savannah. They are so good! Spicy without being too spicy, just how I like it. He was so sweet to remember them.
I think my knitting is starting to intrigue him. Last night I had to frog one of the sleeves for the Baby Bolero (I could not figure out what I had done wrong, but one was bigger than the other one) so I had him hold on to it while I was frogging it. When I looked over he was fascinated by the sleeve unraveling, it was so cute!
It is funny how spending time apart affects our relationship. I miss him so much while he is gone, but when he gets back the little things I didn't have to deal with (toilet seat up, clutter) really get on my nerves. I just have to remind myself that it isn't a big deal and just breath. We are still in that "getting to know you again" stage, which is kind of fun. He has new stories and things to tell me. It brings back that time when we first met, when I was finding out what a great guy he is. Holding hands is fun again. I used to wonder how people could stay together for 40 years or more, now I know how. People change and it is fun to get to know them all over again.
I didn't mean to turn this into a mushy post about my husband, oh well. Next time I'll have more pictures of green things for Project Spectrum.
