July 20, 1974
47 years ago...
We were so young
but we knew that we were in love
ready to spend our lives together
as husband and wife.
I have kept my wedding dress, veil and blue garter.
Maybe Isla will want to play "dress up" and wear it someday?
We went out for dinner with our friends on Sunday evening to celebrate.
We went to the Snug at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and we were waited on by Mom's favourite server.
I had a glass of the wine that Mom always ordered.
If it is not too hot we will sit on the deck and have a cocktail.
I will make my husband his favourite spaghetti dinner and a simple salad.
The sun is shining down on The Humble Bungalow Garden.
on the north side of the bungalow we have a slate patio
that is surrounded by a riot of hydrangeas,
Limelight and Angelina mixed in with hostas and lady's mantle.
We spent the better part of the weekend in the garden getting caught up on the weeding and the deadheading of the roses.
It feels a little bit cooler today as there is a breeze...
an exterminator is coming by this afternoon to deal with a large wasp nest.
We are planning to buy a new TV and get an upgrade on our viewing subscriptions.
There are so many options and channels that it feels quite daunting trying to decide what to order...
Do you have any suggestions on particularly good channels?
Will close with this pretty sunflower grown from the seeds that dear reader Rosemarie sent to me in memory of my mom.
Thank you for popping by The Humble Bungalow Blog.
