A Romantic Outing

Let it not be said that my husband and I are not romantic. We don't need no stinking dinners over candlelight without our kids. It doesn't even have to be on a Friday or Saturday night. This afternoon after our lunch of grilled Bubba burgers, we headed off on our outing. It was just the two of us, alone, together and we were off to the new Lowes in town.

It was so thrilling to walk up and down the aisles as we lovingly gazed at home improvement items. There was a moment of flirtatious indecision as we tried to decide between bricks or larger patio blocks for our front walkway. In the end, we had to walk away and leave that decision for another day. We came with a purpose, locks for a door that we having put in on our back porch. The cat's entertainment of watching this 1/2 inch to inch gap at the floor to pounce on wild life will cease and will keep the porch warmer in the winter.

Ooo Baby, ooo baby, that's our exciting Sunday afternoon. Between the threat of thunderstorms yesterday and misty rain today, we weren't able to go kayaking, or take out some shrubs that have become huge in the front of the house. All can be done another weekend.

    Hey, I recently added a news widget from to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.

  2. I see the Hubs and I are in the same boat as you- we could double, if only we lived closer!*sigh*

  3. Who needs a loaf of bread and a jug of wine when you can have Bubba burgers? And since anticipation intensifies the thrill, I'm glad you can soon quiveringly return to the bricks and blocks. The really important question though -- how will the cat react to the new door?

  4. You sound busy. Enjoy your moments and have a great day

  5. The cats will learn to live for the ants invading the house, instead of the occasional toad or mouse that they can't seem to get. I know the mouse has been on the porch, since I recognized the pillow fringe in the nest I once found in the grill. The best was the chipmunk that came in and hung out in the wood pile, drove our first cat crazy!

    Toni: Now that would be a double date for the books!

    Amy: busy, but never to busy to blog!

    Hey, my first comment spam, guess I may have to go to the scrambled letters here soon.

  6. Hey Miss Jen, Lowe's is better than Wal Mart! Sometimes just being together is enough to qualify for a date. I hope you don't have to put the "captcha" on your site. Wordpress has a plug-in to catch the spam, I wonder if Blogger has anything like that? Probably not.

  7. Sounds like fun! We too need to tackle the bushes and weeds in the yard, but it has been raining so much.

  8. You and I have the same kind of dates lately!

    I wonder why it's now that my kids are older that our dates are more mundane? It used to be much more romantic when they were younger. Now it's just nice to get out of the house 'just the two of us' even if it's a trip to Home Depot or Wal-Mart!

    Who knew you could find romance in the plumbing aisle as you perused underground sprinkler!

  9. I love those dates to home improvement stores. Maybe we'll join ya sometime! ;)
