the big 8
The sweet one is up top: Parsnip, Carrot and Squash Crust, sundried tomatoes, basil, dill, summer savory, and one or two cherry tomatoes from the garden, along with locally produced swiss cheese, eggs and milk
Bottom quiche is the savory one: potato onion crust, swiss chard and onions, sage, thyme, and parsley, swiss cheese, eggs and milk.
Then the parents left after a good visit and we all settled into our quiet life again...interspersed with occasional barking, of course. Last week we celebrated the husband's 33rd birthday and today we celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. The husband woke up early and made me a really nice breakfast. I got to do yoga for a little while, and so far, it hasn't hurt at all! I tried not to overdo it this time. (just wait until tomorrow, I know.) I got offered a really nice freelance writing gig for a big magazine. I finished the knitting of the first of the three sweater jackets and all the pieces are blocking right now. All is really good.
It seems to me that people make such a big deal over weddings, first, fifth or tenth anniversaries or big number birthdays. The thing is, I can't figure out why. Every year, heck, every day, is a fabulous milestone! The important parts of relationships or of life are so wrapped up in the every day. A dinner with friends, a sunny day, a long walk with a dog or two. I'm so lucky to have little quiet happy days like this one. I'll leave you with a photo a friend snapped of us this past winter. It was just an ordinary day...kind of like this one. A good day.
