So long ago...

Yesterday was actually our anniversary, 32 years. We got married that day so long ago because that was what we had decided a month or so earlier, that Bob could get away for a few days "when the hay was in". We "eloped" to Alexandria, Virginia on the recommendation of one of my co-workers. There was no waiting period and we could have our blood tests done that day. We got there, found the courthouse and were given a sheet of instructions. We followed them and were married shortly after lunch in the basement of the courthouse. I don't even have any pictures from the day, or from the few days we spent afterwards in Wildwood, NJ!

The day we were married was a Monday and on Thursday, we got home and went out. We invited everyone we saw to come over for a picnic on Sat to celebrate. It was a fun party. Our real honeymoon was the next February, when we spent two weeks in Acapulco. There are pictures from the party and from the trip, and one day I'll dig them out an scan a few in...

So, here we are, 32 years later. And they said it wouldn't last!

I started the day early yesterday and made a couple of new sets of beads. This first set is a pretty simple pressed set using the Autumn green frit Rachel gave me on a brown. I can see the flatter diamond beads as a bracelet, alternated with silver diamond beads I have. One of the "gem" beads would be a dangle on the bracelet and the other two would be matching earrings....

These "tablet" style pressed beads have a poppy frit on the turquoise base with ivory splashed on top. I love them with the branch coral.

We went out for a very nice lunch yesterday to celebrate. We had the house to ourselves again since Rob was away, so it was a nice quiet relaxing day. Like a lot of the days way back when...

Well, looks like today will be pickle day. We have tons of cucumbers and Tina and I both bought some pickle mixes... Polish Dill, Bread and Butter and sweet pickle mix. This is something new. We'll see how it goes!

Hey, that green frit looks wonderful on that brown! Good choice! I"m hoping to torch later today since I'm finally caught up with work! I've got to actually have some beads to seel at Gem Miner's, right? ha ha ha!

Seriously, Happy Anniversary!
