Yesterday was, almost as close as I can imagine to, a perfect day. I say almost because the grands weren’t here and that would have, of course, made the day absolutely perfect.
I spent the morning in the kitchen freezing peaches and making dill pickles. We’re fortunate to have an open kitchen so, as I puttered, I could chat with Gerry who sat reading in the living room. He loaded up the CD player with some of our favorites and I hummed and danced around the kitchen while I worked.
I lost count of the number of times one of us said “this is what it’ll be like when we retire.”
In the afternoon we went to the Soo Creek Garden which is not too far from where we live. Gerry drives past it every day on his way to work and we’ve often wondered about it. I spotted some photographs of the gardens a few days ago on a blog and knew we needed to check it out. We discovered a treasure hidden right in plain sight! I’m sorry it took us so long to visit. I think this may be my new favorite writing spot.
